Here are our bank details:

Account name: The Eternal Forest Trust (though you may only have enough space for Eternal Forest); sort code 16-58-10, account number 20010516.

Burial of a body

This includes clearing the plot, digging the grave and preparing a suitable area around it for mourners, provision of a hand-drawn wooden Coffin Cart to take the deceased to the burial site, attending the burial, re-filling the grave and restoring the area with woodland plants such as ferns, and finally, planting, if desired, with a native tree.

The charge does not include the following: provision of a coffin or shroud or the roles normally provided by funeral directors; celebrants, musicians or other professionals; grave marker.

The donation is voluntary and as such, its size is not fixed; but the Charity relies on donations so we ask you to be generous.  We use this system of pricing because we are a Charity and we want to make burial in the wood affordable to everyone.  Many of those who use our services are tax payers who allow us to claim Gift Aid on their donations.

Cremation ashes

This includes clearing and digging the plot, attending the burial and restoring the site after burying ashes. There’s an additional charge for us to plant a tree (only available on large plots). The trees we supply are locally grown, please ask us about an appropriate tree for your plot.

A grave marker is not included.

Pet burial

Pets may be buried in their owner’s plot or in individual pet plots.

People who have booked plots for their own future use, or those who have been looking after a pet belonging to someone who is buried in the wood, may bury the animal themselves in the pre-booked or dedicated plot by arrangement with us.  If no assistance is required, there will be no charge.  We would appreciate a donation and we need to be informed before a pet is buried.
