List of Natural Burial Grounds
Clayton Wood Natural Burial Ground, Hassocks, West Sussex
Set in 15 acres of countryside you can be part of a new English wood that will be protected from development, with the South Downs National Park.
Opened in 2008 below the Jack and Jill Windmills, our beautiful site has various dedicated areas for full natural burials and cremated remains, surrounded by native trees for future generations to enjoy.
As part of our commitment to sustainable management, we are working with the Wildlife Trust to develop a long-term conservation plan. Our aim is to create a beautiful natural native woodland that will link up with two other existing woods, creating migration corridors for wildlife.
Funeral Arrangements: In our experience it is always better to go through a funeral profession but it is not a requirement.
All coffins, caskets and urns must be completely biodegradable.
Types of Plots Available: Full Burials (Single & Double Depth / At need or pre need)
Memorials: Solid Re-Cycled English Oak Memorial Plaques and Benches.
