The Woodland Burial Scheme at Gornal Wood Cemetery offers an alternative to burial in traditional cemetery sections where headstones are erected on lawned graves. Woodland graves provide a living memorial in an area attractive to wildlife including wild flowers, birds and small mammals. This web page sets out to explain how the scheme will be managed and to clarify the advantages and disadvantages.

The woodland burial scheme may appeal to those who wish to protect and enhance the environment and who do not require a lawned surface or an inscribed memorial on the grave.

Local Funeral Directors are also aware of this woodland scheme.

If you would like further details or advice about this scheme, or you would like to reserve a woodland plot please contact us using the details below.
