Inside the wildlife area to the left-hand-side of the entrance is a solid chestnut-framed memorial panel where Welsh slate plaques are mounted. Each plaque is inscribed with the name, year of birth and year of death of those buried here.
We have selected the materials and construction to withstand the test of time and weather. For many, it is important to have the name of the person written and recorded, especially as there are no markers on the individual graves in the natural burial meadow.
If you would like to order one please go to the forms and prices page and download a memorial application form and send it to us.
Memorial rights are granted for the display of a memorial plaque in the frame. Rights last for a period of 25 years after which they are renewable. The renewal of memorial rights in the future will provide an important contribution to the upkeep of the frame and other maintenance at the burial ground after income from the sale of rights of burial has ceased.
Dedicate a Tree-for-Life
Native tree planting at the natural burial meadow will create a new area of woodland, improving biodiversity and encouraging more wildlife to visit.
There are two options for planting individual native trees at the burial ground:-
The slate plaque will be displayed in the Memorial Panel for a period of 25 years. Tree labels will be displayed for an initial period of ten years (due to the projected lifespan of the materials), and you will have the option to renew/extend the periods at the end of this term.
If you would like to dedicate a tree in memory of somebody please go to the forms and prices page and download a Tree For Life application form and send it to us.
If you wish to scatter ashes at the base of your tree you will also need to complete an ashes scattering form. Please go to the forms and prices page and download an ashes scattering form and send it to us.
In the meadow native wildflower seeds may be scattered on the grave and the surrounding area after the burial. The mix should be chosen to suit the clay sub-soil.
A typical mix would comprise:
