To maintain the rural character of the Burial Ground and comply with planning requirements 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 supplied by ourselves.
Choice of trees:
Please be aware that all memorials, trees and any other items, such as benches, must be approved by Friends of Nature Burial Ground.
Fences, ceramic or glass items, photographs, cuddly toys and balloons are not permitted.
