Options for Cremated Remains

Common VetchThere are three options for interring ashes at Sun Rising. In woodland areas, ashes can be interred and a sapling planted on the plot about a foot from the grave. A small slate plaque can be placed beside the tree.

A second option is a meadow grave. Meadow graves do disappear beneath the changing vista of native grasses and wildflowers. Meadow graves cannot be marked, but a plaque can be bought for one of the pathside or trackside memorial posts.

There are also cremated remains plots around our parkland oaks. As with meadow plots, these graves are not marked, but a plaque can be bought for a nearby memorial post.

More information can be found on our Memorials pages when you are ready.

Please Note : the scattering of ashes is strictly prohibited at Sun Rising. Because we are creating a nature reserve, we must be very aware of the pH and fertility of the soil; scattering ashes can be detrimental to necessary ecological balance, directly killing wild flowers and deterring the growth of native species.
