Crouch Valley Meadow located in the rural village of Althorne is family owned and run.
We offer a natural alternative to traditional graveyards or crematoriums. We extend a proper and respectful burial to all individuals, whatever their religious or secular beliefs.
The meadow opened in 2004 with permission granted by the Local Planning Authority.
Our long-term aim is to ensure a well managed eco-green burial site where a meadow grave offers a return to nature – among wild flowers and native trees, with only the sounds of birds and small animals close by.
Crouch Valley Meadow’s management is committed to maintaining the Meadow as an area of natural beauty.
At Crouch Valley Meadow you can plant a memorial tree on the graves. These trees and the meadowland provide a natural habitat for the wildlife.
