Belsay Woodland Burials offers a peaceful resting place of enduring beauty. Owned and managed by Belsay Estate, and within sight of the historic Belsay Hall and Castle, our Natural Burial site opened in June 2018. It is developing gradually and harmoniously with only indigenous species of trees and flowers planted.
A Natural Burial, using completely bio-degradable materials and no form of embalming, is an ecologically friendly and often less expensive funeral option; it provides a thoughtful legacy for future generations and is a wonderful choice for those who love the countryside.
Belsay Woodland Burial is open to all: any type of personal belief, faith or culture can be accommodated. Burial plots can be purchased in advance by those wishing to get their affairs in order, or they can be chosen at the time of need.
Arranging the funeral of a loved one, or planning your own, is something that most of us are faced with at some point. We are here to help you, so please do contact us with any questions or concerns; we would be happy to arrange a viewing appointment.
