Living Memorials

Woodland Scattering Areas

Woodland Scattering Areas

This is an area of the gardens, specially created for the scattering of ashes. The area is intended to be kept as natural as possible, and therefore no personal items are allowed in this area. The ashes are scattered loosely and can be carried out by a member of our staff, or the family can be present when we do this. If you would like to witness the scattering, please call the office to make an appointment.

No memorials are allowed in this area, other than Birdboxes which are available for dedication. A newer alternative are Granite Mushroom Plaques which are available adjacent to the woodland area.

Family Beds and Family Gardens

Family Beds and Family Gardens

These are one of our most popular memorials. These consist of a private area dedicated to one person or family. The Beds are smaller options, edged with cobbles and planted with either a patio standard rose or a standard shrub. The Gardens are a larger memorial and these are planted with an assortment of small shrubs and bedding. Both options come complete with a granite or bronze plaque. There is also the opportunity to make the memorial more unique by adding an alternative boulder or marker, or even a bird bath or sun dial.

Ashes can be interred at the memorial if required.

Trees

Trees

A variety of trees have been planted for dedication. We offer either woodland trees in our woodland belt, some of which are mature varieties, or ornamental flowering cherry trees in more formal parts of the garden. Log edging can be provided around the woodland trees and cobbles are provided around the cherry trees. A granite or bronze plaque is provided with either option.

Ashes can be interred at the memorial if required.

Boulders & Stones

Boulders & Stones

A range of granite pebbles, boulders and carved stones that can be engraved with the dedication of your choosing and placed with your living memorial.

Please note these boulders and stones are only available with the living memorials detailed above.
