Immerse yourself in Nature

Eden Valley Woodland Burial Ground is a beautiful 22-acre ‘green burial cemetery’ located in Kent.

Burials take place adjacent to our ancient, bluebell woodland, amongst younger but well-established oak trees. Memorial trees planted will enhance this new woodland further and over the years, extending it over the whole site.

Burial plots can be purchased in advance by those wishing to get their affairs in order, or they can be chosen at the time of need. All burials are single depth and family members can purchase adjacent plots.

Memorial Trees

As a truly natural, green burial ground we do not have gravestones, but we mark each grave by planting a memorial tree, which can be chosen from a selected list. The memorial trees will develop into a managed twenty-acre nature reserve and sanctuary for wildlife and humans alike.
