In the heart of the Wychwoods
Fairspear Natural Burial Ground is a place where people of all faiths and beliefs are welcome.
A one-acre natural burial site set within a 7½ acre field on the edge of the Cotswolds in a stunning location overlooking rolling countryside.
The location is ideal for those looking for a peaceful and environmentally friendly resting-place where D.I.Y. Funerals, as well as those organised by Funeral Directors, are both accepted. Increasingly popular Humanist Ceremonies are very welcome too.
In keeping with our ethos and the Association of Natural Burial Grounds (ANBG) code of practice, all types of biodegradable coffin are welcomed and we can advise on most types of coffins and cremation caskets and urns available. You will be able to identify your loved ones final place of rest with a tasteful wooden plaque placed on, or by the grave.
