Welcome to Alne Wood Park Natural Burial Ground

Alne Wood Park Natural Burial Ground is a peaceful 12-acre wildflower meadow, with far-reaching views of the beautiful Warwickshire and Worcestershire countryside. The site offers a less formal, nature-friendly alternative to a traditional cemetery for full-burial and also the interment of cremated ashes.

Changing colours with the seasons, it is a peaceful place, grounded in nature, for family and friends to honour and remember their loved ones. Depending on the time of year, visitors to the site may see deer hiding in the trees and butterflies fluttering amongst the wildflowers, while a kestrel hovers above accompanied by the 'song' of grasshoppers in the meadow.

The burial ground is part of a 40 acre site, containing both newly planted and ancient woodland which is owned by the Heart of England Forest, a charity that is creating and conserving native broadleaf woodland in the Midlands. This connection to the Forest ensures the long-term future of Alne Wood Park as an eco-friendly place of rest.

Why choose a natural burial?
The environmental benefits, wanting to return to nature, and having a funeral conducted in a less-formal environment are just some of the reasons why people opt for a natural burial.

Supporting the Heart of England Forest

Choosing to have a natural burial or to inter ashes at Alne Wood Park supports the charity's aims of improving both the local and global environment. This happens through active onsite biodiversity management and more broadly with any profit going back to support the Heart of England Forest. This creates a special green legacy for people who choose Alne Wood Park as their final resting place.

The charity looks after the site and its surrounding land to ensure its future and to protect it for the benefit of generations to come.

The Heart of England Forest's good work goes way beyond planting trees
