A beautiful location for an environmentally friendly burial
Westall Park aim to create a place which those who wish to remember their loved ones will want to visit, not out of a sense of duty, but from the pleasure and peace of mind it can evoke. Westall Park is a green, environmentally friendly burial ground for quiet reflection, in an informal setting amongst trees, wild flowers and wildlife.
Set in one of the most attractive locations of any woodland burial in the country, Westall Park is located midway between Worcester and Stratford-upon-Avon, near the village of Inkberrow and is approached via a landscaped entrance and a quarter mile private drive. There are superb views of the Worcestershire countryside stretching as far as the Brecon Beacons.
Westall Park was one of the first natural burial grounds to open back in 1997. Since then there have been over 1200 burials and reservations and nearly 2000 ashes burials and reservations.
The guiding policy at Westall Park is of managed woodland burial in which the environmental benefits of natural renewal are balanced against the desire for long term remembrance. Westall Park does not follow any particular faith but holds the common ethos that our remains should be disposed of with dignity and without being a burden to those that we leave behind.
Green burial offers the most environmentally friendly and enduring form of interment and remembrance intending to progressively return to natures own cycle of renewal and care. Westall Park is strongly focused on ecological principles and to that end native trees and shrubs will be randomly planted around the park to create a mixture of wooded areas and open glades connected by a network of picturesque paths.
There are no headstones at Westall Park, instead plots can be marked with an optional plaque. Visitors are encouraged to plant wild flowers in the grave areas to enhance the existing flower meadow.
Free from unnecessary regimentation, Westall Park will eventually become a woodland glade, full of nature where all wildlife is encouraged to thrive.
