Woodland Burials at Oakfield Wood


Woodland Burial Ground and Nature Reserve

Oakfield Wood at Wrabness opened almost 3 decades ago, aiming to be the antithesis of traditional cemeteries and offering alternative choices for lovers of nature and wildlife. The woodland burial ground has matured into a serene and peaceful haven of vibrant greens, leafy shade and a stunning blaze of natural colours. It's a place of open skies, trees and birds, and overlooks the beautiful River Stour. In the summer it buzzes with insects and the life of nature and because it is a protected woodland it provides a forever undisturbed resting place for all who choose this stunning spot. 


Environmentally friendly and affordable.

Oakfield Wood offers an environmentally friendly, cost effective alternative to traditional burials, cemeteries and graveyards. Our policy is to keep our prices very competitive. Unlike other companies; we do not offer tiered levels of service, or more exclusive sections of our woodland for those who wish to pay more. All plots are equal. We offer both full burials and ashes interments, and they are given the same amount of space within the woodland, allowing the trees and woodland to develop at an equal place.
