In our experience it is usually better to go through a funeral director or Funeral Planner but it's not a requirement. Click this link to find more details on local Funeral Directors
What sort of casks, coffins or urns can be used?
All types of containers must be made of biodegradable materials such as wicker, willow, bamboo or cardboard. Please click on the link for more information regarding Coffins, Shrouds & Urns .
What sort of marker or headstone is allowed?
There are no headstones used within the meadow land. The burial plot will be marked with a small wooden marker peg. Along with this, the plot will have it's own Grid Reference map point. This is what makes a natural burial ground so different from a conventional burial as the landscape is left as natural as possible. No Marker is to be placed on the site without our prior permission.
The feeling of wanting to be buried in an over crowded grave yard with hundreds of head stones is becoming less fashionable. More & more people are choosing to be buried in a peaceful meadow land, where the area is filled with nature and the birds fill the skies. Fenns Meadow itself sits within a pastureland of 10 acres. The site is positioned on high ground, facing a North Westerly direction which is perfect for watching the beautiful sunsets that regularly occur. The views from the site stretch across to North Wales, Cheshire and Liverpool. The Llangollen Canal borders the western side of the farm.
Fenns Meadow is only a couple of miles from the Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI's) of Fenns Moss and Whixhall Moss.
Fenns Meadow is part of a family farm, which has been farmed by the Blantern family for 3 generations. Now that the farming community is turning greener in approach, we at Fenns Meadow have been accepted in to the Environmental Higher Level Stewardship Scheme, as well as starting Fenns Meadow.
