Business Profile

Welcome The Willows Natural Burial Ground Leicestershire is a 5.8 acre gently sloping site set in the beautiful Charnwood countryside and located on the edge of the small rural village of South Croxton.
Central to the site is an island feature which will ultimately provide an extended canvas of seasonal colourful flora with picturesque views of the burial grounds signature wheel design of alternating areas of wild flower meadow and woodland.
The western boundary part of the site falls towards and overlooks two ponds which support wildlife and fish.

Our Services We are a natural burial ground. We offer plots for natural burials either in Woodland or wild flower meadows. Also customers can sponsor trees and purchase memorial plaques which can be placed; by a tree, on a memorial post/wall or directly on the grave in our wild flower meadow.

Arrangements Your burial plot is protected for a 50 year period. This means that nothing will happen to the site other than the natural development of the burial ground.

Funeral Services A funeral director can make all the usual arrangements and we will work closely with them to provide a personal and professional service. Embalmed bodies are generally not accepted at The Willows for burial, but exceptions will be made for repatriation.

Plots Available Single or multiple plots that are side by side are available. However, we would recommend that if you are considering multiple plots that you reserve the adjacent plot at the time, as we cannot guarantee their availability. Plots are available for natural burial or interment of ashes, and all plots can be purchased well in advance. We also offer the option to scatter ashes, this would be in a designated area to protect the ecology of the soil. You can choose to be buried in our woodland or wild flower meadow.

Memorials Native trees including; Ash, Birch and Hazel will be planted at the appropriate time of year when purchased during the organisation process. A small plaque can be placed by the tree or onto a wooden memorial post, and these posts will be placed around the site. Benches are also available for dedications and all memorials are purchased directly from The Willows.

Future of the site, maintenance and management The Willows will be managed and maintained with a strong sense of countryside and conservation. This will create an area of natural woodland and wildflower meadows, a haven for local wildlife to thrive, whilst providing a peaceful resting place and an area of reflection for loved ones.
