The woodland section at Poulton new cemetery has been developed to ensure that our customers have a natural and environmentally friendly way to say their last goodbyes to loved ones. Biodegradable coffins are encouraged and only a tree/memorial shrub permitted.
Woodland graves are for one or two burials and the scattering of ashes may also be arranged within the area.
Since 2004 the area has been managed for the development of trees, wild flowers and the benefit of wild life. Grass mowing may vary from nil to a few times per year dependant on the species of wild flowers which develop on the site. The traditional "neat and tidy" appearance of our cemeteries will not apply to this burial area.
