Norfolk Bluebell Wood, Hainford, Norfolk



Regional winner
The People's Awards for the Best Natural Burial Ground in the UK 2023 and 2022 and Runner Up in 2021

Norfolk Bluebell Wood Burial Park is a unique, nature inspired burial ground in a beautiful park setting, home to centuries old bluebell woodland, newly planted woodland and a glorious wildflower meadow, all resting under big Norfolk skies. Located in the parish of Hainford, seven miles north of Norwich, it is a perfectly suited natural burial ground and final resting place of a loved one, and all within easy reach of every part of the county.

At our natural burial ground at Norfolk Bluebell Wood, we offer a full woodland burial or ash interment in either the ancient Bluebell Wood, or in the newly planted Woodland Meadow or Diamond Jubilee Wood. In addition, an ash interment in our beautiful Wildflower Meadow. Whichever you choose, you can guarantee a tranquil setting for a loved one to be laid to rest, a place for retreat; to be alone to reflect on memories left behind.

Founded by Andrew Morton whose family have been living and farming in Norfolk for three generations, Norfolk Bluebell Wood Burial Park is the fulfilment of a seven year vision, a passion for providing the best possible experience for loved ones at their time of need, and a firm belief the park and ancient woodland should be shared by the community for generations to come.  We have a full landscape management plan implemented to allow managed natural regeneration to occur.
