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.


Trees are not planted on graves but in a separate area. Only trees native to Britain are permitted and all must be authorised by ourselves.
