Humber Woodland of Remembrance, Leominster, Herefordshire

Regional Winner


The People's Awards for the best Natural Burial Ground in the UK 2018 and 2019

Humber Woodland of Remembrance is set in open countryside, four miles east of Leominster. The beautiful new woodland provides a peaceful setting, where families may choose the plot where their loved one will be buried. Additional native trees or wild flowers are being planted on the graves, as burials take place. Many families have organised the funeral of their loved one at the graveside, surrounded by lovely views and birdsong. The possibility now also exists for funerals and wakes to take place at The Hop Kiln at Risbury Court, just a mile down the road from Humber Woodland, where we hope families will feel they can celebrate the life of their loved one in private, in a relaxed and personal way.
