Brocklands Woodland Burial, Settle, North Yorkshire
Regional runner up
The People's Awards for the Best Natural Burial Ground in the UK 2016
"Superb site, and very pleasant and considerate people. Couldn't have been better."
"Julia and Chris Weston provided an excellent service, they were efficient and discreet on the day of the burial, and always helpful with any arrangements prior to the day. They were friendly, professional and dignified in all the service they provided."
Brocklands Woodland Burial is a small, secluded burial ground near Settle, North Yorkshire. It nestles between the Dales and the Forest of Bowland in the beautiful Ribble Valley.
It opened in 2000 and offers natural burials where a tree is planted on each grave, and plots are arranged in small copses with woodchip paths weaving around the site. Families from all over the UK choose Brocklands because of its location and its ethos of only using native plants and trees. We welcome both religious and non-religious funerals, and families are free to arrange the burial as they wish.
Our facilities include a small converted barn for ceremonies; a toilet; ample car parking, and coffins for sale.
