Hay Meadow Burial Ground is a unique natural, green burial ground situated amongst the Radnorshire hills in rural Mid Wales, offering both meadow and woodland burials. A secluded peaceful location offset from a country lane. The Glas brook flows through the family farm in the valley beneath, surrounded by 7,000 acres of hills, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) which is home to a vast array of wildlife, heather and native fruits such as winberries.
The family run burial ground continues to be farmed and grazed by our flock of sheep, with the meadows providing a crop of hay each year. Adjoining to the hay meadow, Busnant Wood is being created to allow the planting of a young native tree, if desired.
The land is not consecrated; we welcome any faith, religion or belief. Arrangements can also be made for graves to be blessed so therefore suitable for everyone. You can decide how you would like your service to be; as simple or as traditional as you wish. Plots can be pre-purchased, singly or as a family group.
Our new shelter is available for funeral gatherings, as well as our wooden bier with no additional cost. Ample onsite parking and toilet facilities are also available, in addition there are picnic tables and benches where you are welcome to sit and look up towards the hills.
Individual requests will always be considered.
