Graves, Crypts and Cremation
Our Special Areas
Some families wish to be present when their loved one’s ashes are placed in their final resting place.
They may choose to come together over a quiet service, scattering or interring ashes in our landscaped gardens. They might decide to play special songs, or share a reading or personal wishes. Some may wish to remember with a personalised floral tribute, or share memories and spark conversation over a meal.
Bringing family and close friends together can be a wonderful way to celebrate the life of a loved one after a cremation, creating an opportunity to pay tribute in a way that feels personal and meaningful. An Honouring Life Service can be tailored to suit your family’s wishes, and you can be as involved in the process as you would like.
It is up to you – however you wish to celebrate the memory of your loved one, our team is here to support you.
We understand that everybody grieves differently. There is no set timeline that suits all of us.
Our team can take the time to discuss, plan and support you with each decision – at your own pace.Enquire online today

Some families wish to be present when their loved one’s ashes are interred in their final resting place. This service is an opportunity for families and friends to reflect and pay a final tribute.
This service can be tailored to suit your family’s wishes and you can be as involved as you would like. Many families choose to come together, reflecting on their loved ones by playing special songs, or sharing a reading or personal wishes before they place the ashes in their final resting place. Rose petals are provided on the day and family members can choose to place these on the site before the position is covered. Many families enjoy a meal afterwards on-site at our Café Vita et flores.
We take pride in providing a quality experience that your family can reflect on in the future. In addition to the time we take to ensure the area is presented at its very best, you will also have a dedicated team member to help guide you through the service.
We provide a non-degradable urn to families at no additional cost. These blue urns are designed to maintain ashes for decades to come and remain identifiable. If you would prefer, you may provide your own urn, or select from our range available to purchase.
There is no restriction on the number of people that can attend.
Our team is dedicated in supporting you on the day, and would be honoured to say some words on your behalf should you wish. However, most families choose to make their final tribute themselves. You are also welcome to provide your own priest or celebrant.
