Fairspear Natural Burial Ground, Oxfordshire

Our one acre site set within a seven and a half acre field on the edge of the Cotswolds is situated in a stunning location overlooking rolling countryside.

We planted the site with one thousand young trees in 2000.   Wild bulbs and wild flowers are planted each year and the area is maturing into an ideal location for those looking for a peaceful resting place.

D.I.Y. funerals and those organised by funeral directors are both accepted.   Ashes can be interred at the site.

All types of coffin allowed provided that they are biodegradable.   Wooden plaques may be placed on or by the grave to identify the loved one’s final resting place.
