At Old Park Meadow we strive to provide totally clear and up front pricing to help you make an informed decision, often during a difficult time. Below is a full list of our services:
Burial and Ash Plot Pricing
Our prices range from £1,545 to £5,150 for burial plots, or £645 to £1,855 for ash plots, depending on the location and access to the plot. This price includes a contribution for the long-term management and maintenance of Old Park Meadow Natural Burial Ground. We do not offer the scattering of ashes as this can be harmful to the environment we have created. There is also a grave preparation and administration fee, £510 for burials and £155 for ash interments, to ensure the safe and proper preparation and administration of each plot.
Coffins exceeding 2m in length or 65cm in width will incur a £100.00 surcharge to cover additional grave preparation cost. We also have other prices for unique situations, please contact us for more details.
Loss of Child up to the age of 18:
All burial or ash plot prices for children up to the age of 18 are half that of our regular fee. The usual grave preparation and administration fees of £510 for burial and £155 for ash interment apply.
Loss of baby during pregnancy:
There is no charge for burial or ash plots for infants lost during pregnancy in our Wildflower Meadow area. Grave preparation and administration prices are half the regular fee, £255 for burial and £77 for ash.
For a variety of reasons it may make sense for you to reserve your burial or ash plot ahead of time, at no extra cost. Please click here to visit our ‘Planning Ahead’ page for more information.

For those who cannot attend in person, we offer a live webcast service that means friends and family can view the service from their own computer, tablet or smartphone. All that they will need is a good internet connection and a username and password for the secure page which we will provide.
This is available for 28 days from the funeral and means anyone who did not have the opportunity to watch the funeral at the time can view it afterwards.
If you would like permanent copies of the recording, we can also provide DVDs, Blu-rays or USB memory stick versions. These professionally edited and produced recordings can be a memory to keep, or shown to anyone who was not able to see the service for themselves.

To give a funeral a more personal feel, we offer the ability to display a single picture shown throughout or slideshow on a high-definition screen during the service. For the slideshow, up to 25 photos can be displayed either on a loop throughout or changed once at a time of your choosing.
There is also the option to have a professional photo tribute created, including music, which can be played at any time during the proceedings.
If you would like to show a video or photo tribute you have created yourself, we can also display this after Obitus has checked and prepared it for you.

Memorials and Other Options
Old Park Meadow is above all a place of remembrance and we fully understand that you may wish to mark the grave with a reminder of your loved one. To preserve the natural beauty of our site on the burial and ash plots we only allow wooden grave markers to be placed. However, we have a number of different options for memorials that are each presented in their own unique, individual way. From slate plaques in a beautiful oak frame, or an engraved leaf on our Copper Tree, an entry in our Book of Remembrance to living memorial trees, you will not be found wanting for options. For more information, including prices, please click here.
There are also a number of options to make your ceremony that little bit more memorable, including recordings or photo tributes. Please talk to our team for more details by using our contact us page.
