The award winning St. Albans Woodland Burial Trust celebrates its 11th Anniversary this year. Come along to our Open Day on Saturday 30th June 2018. It's a great opportunity to see the woodland close up. It allows us to show off all our achievements and demonstrate how we are working in conjunction with nature. We embrace the most eco-friendly and green ways possible to ensure the cycle of life. See first hand how we are taking a stand against deforestation and alleviating the pressure on the environment. Walk around the new Glades and marvel at the vibrance of everything from the trees to our natural wildlife and native fauna.
Whilst the woodland resides in the extensive St Albans Diocese, from which it takes its name, it is open to everyone in the UK and offers an environmentally friendly alternative to the municipal crematoriums and overcrowded church cemeteries.
We are turning back the clock, restoring native woodland and genuinely making a difference - a truly natural, eco-friendly solution with the added benefit of protected status (one of only two such woodlands in the UK).
Over the last 11 years, our managed woodland has expanded significantly and already extends to over 12 acres thanks to your support and that of our Friends. Already a further 60 acres of young trees have been planted around us.
Every woodland burial, interment of ashes and donation helps us restore the 350 acres of ancient woodland that once stood here. Reserve or allow your loved one to rest here amongst the peace and tranquility of tomorrows ancient woodland.
