Guildford’s newest burial ground, Clandon Wood, open for barely a year, is delighted to have been nominated for a Good Funeral Award in the Cemetery of the Year category. Pia Interlandi who works at Clandon Wood designing eco garments for the grave has also received a nomination for the Most Significant Contribution to the Understanding of Death.
Simon Ferrar, founder and manager at Clandon Wood said, “ We have developed something very special here and it is a privilege to share that with the families that use Clandon Wood.”
Clandon Wood Natural Burial Reserve opened last year with a view to offering a thoughtful, peaceful way of saying goodbye to loved ones and letting them return to the earth. Located at the foot of the Surrey Hills between East and West Clandon, Surrey’s largest natural burial ground is managed as a nature reserve, providing not only a place of rest but also sustainable wildlife habitats. Over thirty acres of wildflower meadow provide a beautiful setting for an eco-friendly funeral. People of all faiths and denominations are welcome to honour and celebrate lives well lived, sending those precious to them on their way in a relaxed and tranquil environment.
The awards ceremony takes place this Saturday, 7 September, in Bournemouth. I’m sure you’ll join the Best of Guildford in wishing Simon Ferrar and his team the very best of luck!
