Considering a burial at Clandon Wood
Be it a religious, spiritual or secular burial service or commemoration the choice is yours. At Clandon Wood we welcome everyone.
The character and ambience of a burial at Clandon Wood are very much created by you and your choice of ceremony. It could include a brass band, a choir, a violinist in the meadow or a simple straight to grave committal to reflect and honour the life of the person who has passed away.
Should you wish our contemporary glass pavilion allows for you to have both a farewell service and a catered gathering after the committal so that the entire funeral can take place at a single location. Whatever you choose we allow a minimum of three hours for every burial where the pavilion is used to ensure no one ever feels rushed or hurried. We also welcome a graveside service if this is preferred or a simple straight to grave burial for when a service may have been held at an alternative location. For these choices we allow a minimum of one and a half hours.
A key benefit of Clandon Wood is our friendly on-site team which is available seven days a week to help you make your farewell unique to you and relaxed but perfectly organised. We have considerable experience in helping families at what is an extremely sensitive and emotional time to organise the burial of their loved one. Please feel free to get in touch with us and let us take the strain.
Working in close partnership with the many funeral directors located in the vicinity as well as others further afield including London we will ensure all aspects of the burial or service at Clandon Wood run smoothly and to the very highest standards at a time we never forget is difficult and emotional for the bereaved.
The pavilion has been designed to provide a quality and flexible space for both small and large groups of people and has state of the art audio/visual equipment installed to enable you to present your farewell service in the way you wish.
If you have not chosen a person to lead the burial service or committal and require a member of the clergy, a minister or celebrant we can introduce you to several so that you can choose the most appropriate person.
From a service in the pavilion or on arrival from elsewhere the coffin is typically taken to the grave in a gentle procession using our horse and hay cart or our hand cart.
There is on-site parking for up to 100 cars to allow for all sizes of service and our facilities have full disabled access and include a baby-changing unit. There is a covered motorised buggy available to transport guests who are less mobile and should it decide to rain we can provide umbrellas.
