Church Services

Hay Meadow Burials is positioned in the centre of two local churches, each just being 1½ miles away from the meadow. You may wish to have a service in one of these local churches or hold a religious service in the meadow, then have the grave blessed.  Or have a service at another local church of your choice with a burial in the meadow, whatever your wish may be.

St David’s Church Glascwm

Said to have been founded by Saint David himself, as a centre of Celtic Christianity.  The 13th century nave has two original doorways, and the chancel dates from the 15th century. Part of the original wagon ceiling remains.

St David’s Church Cregrina

A very simple rural church on a site overlooking the River Edw.  The Church boasts a 13th century nave, 15th century roof, a late medieval wooden screen, and a Norman tub font.

Chapel Services

You may wish to hold a Chapel Service before having a natural burial in the meadow. Hay Meadow Burial Ground has a couple of Chapels within a short distance of the meadow.  Cregrina Free Mission Chapel is just 1 ½ miles away from the meadow and Franksbridge Baptist Chapel is only 4 miles away`.

Cregrina Free Mission Chapel

Originally it was a house which was built before 1905. In 1966 the house was converted into a chapel, with the removal of the upstairs floor to create a sense of space for the congregation.

Franksbridge Baptist Chapel

Being first built in 1835, it was then rebuilt in 1909 to the designs of mixed Lombardic, Italianate, Arts and Craft style with a gable entry plan.
