The Eternal Forest Boduan Sanctuary Wood, Pwllheli


Regional Runner Up in Wales


The People's Awards for the best Natural Burial Ground in the UK 2013 and 2022


Boduan Sanctuary Wood, owned by The Eternal Forest Trust, is the only place in Wales where you can be buried in established woodland. Green burials allow the Charity to restore the wood, creating sunlit glades and enhancing biodiversity. People and pets are buried in these woodland glades, their plots marked with trees and small stone memorials overhung by ferns, bluebells and other wild plants. You choose the spot and ceremony – secular or religious – with musicians if desired; we do the burial. We can also hang wooden plaques or bird boxes in dedicated trees, in memory of people loved and lost. Visitors are welcome; the wood is accessible to all, to enjoy its peace and beauty at any time.
