Additional images were taken at 'Death Fest' at the Southbank Centre 27-29th January 2012, where we spoke to hundreds of people and with their help created a bejewelled pink coffin.

The environment of our green area is kept as natural as possible and is a scenic and peaceful setting. It is a permanently managed area that is as natural as possible and will provide a safe refuge for birds and wildlife and will allow wild flowers and trees to thrive.
Each grave space is marked with a natural york stone marker and a memorial tree. Wild flowers and bulbs can also be planted on the grave space. Pre-purchasing of your plot is available if you so wish for a burial or cremated remains. We are always pleased to welcome visitors to look around our Cemetery.
