Welcome to GreenAcres

Ash Interment or Scattering

If cremation is the choice, the park has many burial trees – and beautiful plots on The Meadow – where ashes can be interred and marked with a single wooden memorial. There is also a special Ash Scattering area for those who wish the park itself to become the place of remembrance, as no individual memorials mark the place of the scattering. A large wooden memorial stands at the top of the scattering area though, where floral tributes may be left in memory of loved ones.
