It was lovely and natural with dogs allowed, she would have loved that. It was just perfect.

Exceptional. Francis took the time to explain the day, site and concept. An extermely kind man. I found this site online, it seemed right but was even more perfect when I visited. The whole concept was just right for my husband who loved nature & was so concerned about ecology… what makes it so right is that it looks like a beautiful woodland & not a cemetery. A peaceful, reflective & beautiful place for us to visit & walk around.

Tributes should also be paid to Francis who took trouble to show us around unprompted even though he was awaiting a funeral. He was friendly & compassionate to me in my loss and approachable. On our funeral day he was supremely organised, pleasant & friendly to mourners and at the end gave me a big hug and smile saying it had been a lovely service.

The whole experience was a celebration and was far from the mournful occasion it might have been. We were treated sensitively and respectfully and extremely kindly by all the staff and this means such a lot.

When first seen we could not wish for a better place to be laid to rest. My wife and I have always been happiest in the countryside.

From my 1st contact Francis was such a help & comfort. The information was clear and I liked the very obvious love & stewardship he had for the woodland. The forest is beautifully natural & peaceful. On the day my wife’s ashes were interred everything was set up beautifully and we were treated with great kindness & respect. It is such a comfort knowing my wife lies in such a lovely place.

Thank you for all your help and support with our father’s burial. It truly was everything we could have hoped for and a perfect reflection of the man he was in life.

A beautiful final resting place. Comforting for the family; our enquiry last year was dealt with in a friendly professional manner.

I know we thanked you at the time for making such an occasion so special, but you enabled us to do and say all the things we wanted and cared for us in such a loving and respectful way in such perfect surroundings. It is good to know we can visit such a special place in all seasons and that someone such as yourself is prepared to share their piece of nature with others at such an important time

Very relaxed and we felt free to conduct our own service, quiet and peaceful, well kept, high standards about natural materials, clearly good relationships with funeral directors

Francis and his wife were wonderful, supportive and expressed empathy. They made a difference in our grief and Dad now rests at peace with nature where we began our origins

Thank you for all your help and especially for the use of your lovely woods
