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 Ashes Plot Pricing
Our prices range from £1,500 to £5,000 for burial plots, or £625 to £1,800 for ashes plots, depending on the location and access to the plot. This price includes a donation 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, £495 for burials and £150 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 under 16:
All burial or ashes plot prices for children under the age of 16 are half that of our regular fee. The usual grave preparation and administration fees of £495 for burial and £150 for ash interment apply.
Loss of baby during pregnancy:
There is no charge for burial or ashes plots for infants lost during pregnancy. Grave preparation and administration prices are half the regular fee, £247 for burial and £75 for ashes.
For a variety of reasons it may make sense for you to reserve your burial or ashes 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.
There is also the option to have the webcast available to view online after the funeral for 28 days. This 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 cherish of the day, or shown to anyone who was not able to see the funeral 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 checking and preparing it for you.

From slate plaques in a beautiful frame, to an entry in our Book of Remembrance to living memorial trees, you will not be found wanting for options.
