GreenAcres Chiltern

Although a natural burial ground, GreenAcres allow their woodland hall to be used for cremation services. There’s also the option of using the separate Gathering Hall as a wake venue. The service is held at the venue, the actual cremation then takes place afterwards at a local crematorium and is unattended.

Just a 30 – 40 minute drive (~23 miles) from SW London, will transport you to a most peaceful setting surrounded by nature. As you arrive, you drive along a woodland road before turning into the forest. It’s an entirely different atmosphere – less funereal.

What gREENaCRES cHILTERN offers

  • Chapel: This is a stunning Woodland Hall with glass walls in a natural woodland setting that can seat up to 120 people (or with some standing, up to 150 max). When the weather allows, more people can gather outside in the courtyard also. The service is held at GreenAcres, after which the coffin is discretely taken by GreenAcres to their eco-friendly North Oxford Crematorium for cremation.
  • Service time: around 50 minutes
  • Visual tributes: There is a landscape TV screen should you wish for a slideshow of photos as a reflection piece to be played during the service (we create this for you)
  • Webcasting: Live-streaming option available so service can be webcast live in real time
  • Ashes: You may choose to have ashes scattered or interred at GreenAcres
  • Accessibility: Wheelchair access is available.
  • Guests can gather and chat in in the courtyard or Gathering Hall before and after the service (including an outdoor picnic area)
  • Typically we pre-place the coffin into the hall before family arrive as it can feel softer. This means that if you wished for a few private moments in the hall before guests enter, we can arrange this
  • The coffin stands elegantly on trestles in front of glass doors overlooking the woodland
