The Meadow Cemetery, Doncaster

The Meadow Cemetery was begun in 2010 with planting of over 1000 native trees, fruiting orchard trees and hedging.  A new wildlife pond has been dug to encourage wetland wild-fowl and native fauna.

Ecologically sound and environmentally responsive to the need for a more sustainable way to bury our loved ones, the Meadow Cemetery will be mown for hay in the summer with grazing animals surrounding the Site.

As the Cemetery matures the orchards will provide a welcoming entrance to the wildflower meadow, surrounded by spring bulbs and later in the year wild flowers.  The wild-life pond and walk will provide a quiet place to sit and reflect.
