Message to Clayton Wood clients – May 2018

In response to the adverse weather conditions experienced over the winter months, we are investing in essential drainage work to improve ground conditions during extended periods of wet weather. We will be working with our contractors to ensure these works are carried out sensitively to maintain the integrity and natural state of the site and to minimise disruption to clients and visitors.

This unfortunately means we will be unable to take new bookings for full earthen burials until the Autumn when we hope these works will be completed. We will continue to take bookings for scattering or burial of cremated remains.

If any clients who have pre-purchased a grave with us would like to understand more about how these arrangements may impact existing reserved plots please contact our on site office team on 01273 843842 who will be happy to discuss this with you.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused which we will aim to keep to a minimum. Please bear with us while we make these necessary improvements.

Please monitor our website and on site notice boards for updates. Our Clayton Wood team are available should you require any further assistance. Our office hours are 9.00am – 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Once the arrangements were made deciding where to inter his ashes became the next obsession. It had to be just right. Somewhere peaceful. Somewhere he would have liked. Somewhere where I would want to return. Several options were…
  • My wife and I often discussed the merits of cremation or burial and eventually decided on burial-but the idea of churchyards with their rows of tombstones did not appeal, and most of the ones we had seen were derelict and overgrown. We both decided we would like a woodland burial, where from the afterlife, we could commune with nature. Over…
  • Clayton Wood burial ground is such a peaceful and stunning place, it is a comfort to be surrounded by the natural beauty of the area each time we visit. The moment our family came to view Clayton Wood in our time of need, there was no question that this had to be the special place where our son was to…
  • From my first  visit to Clayton 'burial Ground' office, I was overwhelmed by the sensitivity and kindness shown to me by Teague and Karen. Without exception, my questions and requests were gently dealt with.  Having to cope on my own, they literally “held my hand” throughout the decisions and formalities, ensuring I understood all that was required. The grounds are well…
