Saying goodbye doesn't need to cost the earth

By the time you add everything up saying goodbye can be costly event.

With the average price of funerals rising steadily well beyond inflation you might be tempted to think that a final goodbye in a stunning woodland burial park might be out of your reach, so GreenAcres would like you to think again.

After serveral weeks of unpicking cemetery costs from other burial options close by in order to be able to compare its services with them, GreenAcres is to demonstrate that its lowest price is actually lower than or equivalent to others close by.

GreenAcres Woodland Burials has been instrumental in the UK development of a unique, meaningful and award-winning concept that has revolutionised the funeral industry. The first GreenAcres site in Colney Wood in Norwich quickly became an award-winning business and was considered a leader in the funeral sector. This flagship example led to further expansion, Epping Forest in 2008, and Chiltern in 2009. At 72 acres, Chiltern is believed to be the largest of its kind in the UK. The new GreenAcres park at Rainford just outside Liverpool adds a further 65 acres to the GreenAcres portfolio with a woodland that sits on the historic Knowsley Estate.

GreenAcres Woodland Burials are unique and stunningly beautiful places where burials and ash interments take place within a mature woodland landscape. The woodland of the parks is treated with the upmost respect and the woodland teams actively encourage the landscape to naturally flourish and develop. The parks are a haven of wild life and plant growth and the spread of biodiversity is also encouraged.

Compared to the operators of other cemeteries – including natural and green burial grounds – GreenAcres Woodland Burials stand out in terms of the quality of the on-site facilities and the service provided.  The intention is to become the UK’s leading woodland burial provider, operating in tune with the environment, public opinion and sound ethical principles.

With just 5 parks in 1999 calling themselves woodland or natural to 255 in 2009, several contributory factors have witnessed the rise of the woodland or natural burial concept in the UK; •a nationwide shortage of burial space in traditional cemeteries•a move towards increasingly personalised funerals•consumer demand for greater choice•increased environmental awareness ( concerns about cremation emissions and the use of non-bi-degradable materials GreenAcres Woodland Burials are unique and stunningly beautiful places where burials and ash interments take place within a mature woodland landscape, and every need of the bereaved is anticipated and provided for. The woodland of the parks is treated with the upmost respect and the woodland teams actively encourage the landscape to naturally flourish and develop.
