Clayton Wood is a beautifully tranquil natural burial ground, set within the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park. You can be part of a new English wood, set in 15 acres of countryside that will be protected from development.
Opened in 2008 below the Jack and Jill Windmills, our beautiful woodland burial site at Clayton Wood has various dedicated areas for full natural burial and cremated remains, as well as memorial scattering lawns, surrounded by native trees for future generations to enjoy.
Why choose Clayton Wood?
• We are one of the few natural burial grounds to be situated within a National Park.
• We are helping to create a new beautiful wood for the future.
• We are helping to preserve this area of countryside, encouraging native wildlife to flourish.
• We are a tranquil, peaceful place for family and friends to visit.
• Your legacy will be one that future generations enjoy forever.
