Leedam Natural Heritage's Natural Burial Ground at Henley Wins Coveted Award

Share Article

The commitment to minimise the impact on the countryside combined with the personal guidance and friendly support of the burial ground’s custodian, ensured that Henley Woodland Burial Ground won the much coveted ‘Cemetery of the Year’ award at this year’s Good Funeral Awards. The achievement reflects the increasing popularity of natural burials.

A funeral at a natural burial ground makes the ceremony far gentler and more manageable for grieving families.

The awards were presented by Pam St. Clement aka Eastenders’ Pat Butcher. At the Q&A session following the awards presentation, Pam talked about her death bed performance. Unlike her teary TV scene however, there was no lack of words as Pam gave a fascinating account of how she undertook her final goodbye.

Henley Woodland Burial Ground is one of seven run by Leedam Natural Heritage across the UK.
