People often ask us if they can donate to the burial ground and we have decided to make the process easier.  The burial ground is a Community Interest Company (CIC).  This means we are a not for profit business - serving our local community and keeping all costs to a minimum.  We are very grateful for any donations that enable us to develop and improve the site and our events for everyone’s benefit.

If you are gifting in someone’s memory and would like their name added to the memory tree in our office and /or their name to be included in our next newsletter, please let us know by emailing the office here.

You can also decide to take donations at a funeral towards the burial ground and these would be acknowledged in the same way.

What will I be donating towards?

Your gift will help us ensure that the burial ground is a diverse and thriving wildlife haven for the benefit of future generations. The money will go into a general donations fund and any contribution is welcome. Here are some examples of how your gift might be used: planting of more wildflowers and trees; new benches and bowers; helping improve the Roundhouse; the creation of new groves in the burial ground. We may also use the money to expand our existing calendar of events.
