Brinkley Woodland Cemetery
ever-increasing requests from the public, woodland burials are now being
provided in many parts of the country.
A commemorative tree may be purchased through the Estate and will be planted
at the appropriate time of year from a selection which will include Ash,
Oak, Lime, Beech, Larch, Wild Cherry and Hazel. The graves themselves may be
sown with wild flower seed. Apart from a small flat stone set into the
grave, this is the only form of memorial permitted in the Burial Ground.
The position of all graves will be recorded on a plan to allow for location
in the future We would ask you to bear in mind that graves will be under the
grasses and flowers of the meadow.
Cremated remains may be strewn in the designated area of the burial ground.
No record will be kept of the exact location. Plots are available for the
burial of cremated remains in a casket.
Over the years the cemetery will become established meadow with copses of
native trees. The grass will only be cut twice a year at time to encourage
wild flowers, although walkways will be cut more frequently.
On a practical note, the Burial Ground has limited paths and is a a natural
site. Suitable footwear should be worn by those who attend an interment, or
by those enjoying the site for peaceful remembrance.
