Message to Clayton Wood clients – July 2018

Update on Clayton Wood essential drainage works

Following top soil and re-seeding activities to improve the drainage issues at Clayton Wood, we would like to inform our clients that we are now able to accept full earthen burial bookings and enquiries again.

We are also investing to further improve the site over the course of the next three years and have a planned programme of works to preserve our unique and tranquil burial ground. Starting in September 2018, we will be installing unobtrusive pathways enabling visitors and contractors to access the site. All works will be carried out sensitively to minimise disruption to clients and visitors.

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…
