"TREES AND FLOWERS GROW
MAY YOUR ROOTS GO DEEP

TILL THEY REACH THE PLACE WHERE I LIE AND SLEEP

TAKE ALL THE NOURISHMENT YOU NEED, IT'S MY BEQUEST

FOR ALL MY LIFE I HAVE BEEN YOUR GUEST
GROW WELL NOW
HELP THE WORLD TO BREATHE

MY BODY IS THE GREATEST TREASURE I HAVE TO LEAVE"

Alexander Rankin

If you are seeking a natural alternative to traditional graveyards and crematoriums Crouch Valley Meadow offers an environmentally friendly and meaningful choice.

You can choose a final resting place here in the wonderful Essex countryside overlooking the beautiful River Crouch amongst trees and wild flowers.
