Woodland burials


affordable for all


New research, set out to address the myth about woodland burial costs, found that a woodland burial at GreenAcres is a favourable choice for all.


G


reenAcres Woodland Burials carried out a like-for-like comparison between its recently introduced Woodland Goodbye full-burial package and the


prices offered by local cemeteries. Researchers took account of registration


fees, plot costs, interment (burial) fees, headstones, church services and ‘out of area fees’, which are charged when loved ones must be transported from a distant location. The survey also included a venue and refreshments for 30 guests.


GreenAcres has four burial parks across the


UK, Colney in Norfolk, Epping Forest in Essex, Chiltern in Buckinghamshire and Rainford in Liverpool bringing its total coverage to over 200 acres with plans to increase further next year. At the Chilterns site, a Woodland Goodbye burial costs around 25% less than similar ceremonies at cemeteries outside London (£2,365 compared with £3,210– £3,555), and is around half the price of a comparable offering in the capital (£5,720). At Epping, prices are around 30% lower


than comparable local cemeteries (£2,365 for the Woodland Goodbye package compared with £3,428 at Epping Cemetery). And at Colney, the package comes in up to £550 cheaper than similar services available in Norwich and Great Yarmouth. GreenAcres does not charge out-of-area


fees, so the woodland option is even more competitive if distance is a factor. GreenAcres woodland burials are becoming


more popular every year, particularly with those who want to say goodbye to their
