Option A: Pre-Purchasing a Plot

There are many benefits to pre-purchasing a burial plot:

  • it secures the plot price listed at the time of purchase, and alleviates the future financial burden on one's family;
  • many people find it comforting to put their affairs in order ahead of time, and to know how and where they will be laid to rest;
  • knowing that they will form part of a protected nature reserve can also reassure those who wish to make a final positive contribution that is sensitive towards the environment.

You are purchasing a ‘Right of Burial’ at Monument Meadow. Should your plot remain unoccupied for 10 years from the date of purchase, we require that you contact us and re-sign – at no extra cost - to confirm that you still wish to reserve a burial plot at Monument Meadow.

We offer a 28-day ‘cooling off’ period from the pre-payment date, during which time you may cancel your order for a refund.

If you move far away from Farndon or emigrate, and therefore no longer wish to be buried with us, you may apply to have the original pre-purchase price refunded (minus an administration charge of £100).

* Please note: The grave preparation and administration fees are both linked to inflation and paid at the time of the funeral (not in advance).
