We offer a range of memorials, they differ in size and price. If none of our pre-designed memorials fit exactly with individual wishes, we are happy to work out bespoke memorials upon request. We never re-use a memorial area. All memorial options are designed to provide peaceful, tranquil spaces that provide as much privacy as possible.

Granville’s wood is privately owned by us and protected for a minimum of 200 years. After the 200 years, the woodland is passed to the Woodland Burial Trust who are instructed to continue managing the woodlands in conjunction with nominated wildlife charities. We have a heavy onus on the ecological health of the woodlands and have management plans to ensure the habitat develops into a thriving reserve. 15% of all our revenue goes directly to the trust to ensure that the management of the woodlands continues throughout the 200 years on the deed of grant.

With the pre-purchase of plots, we issue a deed of grant for burial or interment and simple documents detailing the process and the steps required at the time the plot is required. We recommend that this is held in three places. A copy with the will and final wishes, a copy with the individual and a copy on record with the Woodland Burial Company. The deed of grant will be specific to the plot and its location within the wood. If a funeral director has also been pre-chosen, we recommend that this information is shared so we may liaise with them.

We can’t receive pre-payment for burial fees for pre-purchased plots. The burial fees will be charged at the time of interment.
