About Us

Dale Hill Natural Burial Ground in Spondon, Derby is a woodland burial ground that has been allowed to grow naturally into a calming space for bereaved families who want to arrange a green funeral. The woodland burial ground sits within the Locke Park Estate and is available for natural burials, cremations and interment of ashes. In keeping with the ethos of the site, only biodegradable coffins, shrouds and urns must be used for the green funeral. A Certificate of Cremation is required before families can have an interment of ashes.

Open to all backgrounds, faiths and beliefs, Dale Hill is happy to accommodate any type of funeral, whether it is a graveside ceremony, a traditional service or a private ceremony led by the family. Families can choose to plant a memorial tree in the woodland area from a list of options such as crab apple, silver birch, hornbeam, holly, hazel and lime. Stone plaques can also be erected at the graveside but these need to be purchased from the site’s supplier.

If you have questions about natural burials, or have decided to buy a plot, call the manager at Dale Hill for further guidance or to arrange a visit.
