Woodland Burial, Wisewood Cemetery

The Woodland Burial Ground offers the opportunity for those departed to ‘return to nature’ and contribute to the formation and preservation of natural woodland. It provides the ideal setting for a burial area, overlooking the beautiful Loxley Valley.

Markers

This type of burial is not intended for those who wish to place a traditional memorial stone on the grave, or for those who feel the need to frequently visit the site.

Each grave will be marked by a small stone marker and a choice of native tree. The grass will be cut infrequently and no horticultural chemicals will be used.

Graves are leased for a minimum of 30 years and for one interment only.

Scattering remains

Cremated remains plots are no longer available on the Woodland section but may be purchased in the traditional section of Wisewood cemetery.
