Progress has been slow on site due to public utilities lack of urgency, we finally have a mains water supply. Hooray!

June 2016

We finally had the site looking great and the gates just as we wanted them.
In the on the early hours of Monday 20th June 2016 12.26am until they moved camera at 2.42am three individuals came and worked diligently with power cutters etc. to steal the gates.
We have great CCTV and have some very good stills.
We find it very distressing that people should steal from a Natural Burial Cemetery.
The Police are proceeding with their enquiries
Gates were made of African Iroko Hardwood, each gate were 10 foot wide, curved at top from 6 foot to 7 foot. Approximately 448lb / 203 Kilos each.

Proposed Crematorium

 

Prior to any interments taking place it became apparent from general enquiries that there is a significant need for a Crematorium in this part of Oxfordshire.

Existing local provisions are under great pressure, this results in long delays before Cremations can take place and hurried services putting undue pressure on families at a very stressful time.

We are in the process of submitting a Planning Application to provide a Crematorium on site. The proposed Crematorium will offer a very high quality experience both in terms of the environment and the time allowed and this combined with the Arboretum will result in the best experience possible at such a difficult time.

We are holding an open day on Monday 2nd October between 10am – 7pm
The exhibition will remain open for viewing thereafter Monday-Friday 10am – 1pm

Please come along and show your support.

 

October 2017

Planning Application has now been submitted to council.

Please show your support 🙂
