Memorials & Trees


To maintain the rural character of the Burial Ground all headstones must be horizontal, be in local stone and of the same design (size 75cm x 60cm). These must be approved and purchased through the Friends of Nature Burial Ground. Each layout is designed individually to your requirements.


A memorial application form can be downloaded from our Downloads page.


We usually hold our annual tree planting in early December.


Only trees native to Britain are permitted and all must be authorised by ourselves.


Suggested trees:

  • Silver Birch (Betula pendula)
  • Bird Cherry (Prunus padus)
  • Rowan (Sorbus aucuparia)
  • Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus)

Other Items

Please be aware that any other items, such as benches, must be approved by Friends of Nature Burial Ground. 

Fences, ceramic or glass items, photographs and balloons are not permitted.
