Our commitment to minimise the impact on the countryside combined with the personal guidance and friendly support of the burial ground’s custodian Andy Chanter, ensured that Henley Woodland Burial Ground won the much coveted ‘Cemetery of the Year’ award at this year’s Good Funeral Awards.
The awards were presented by Pam St. Clement aka Eastenders’ Pat Butcher (pictured opposite).
At the Q&A session following the awards presentation Pam talked about her death bed performance. Unlike her teary TV scene however, there was no lack of words as Pam gave a fascinating account of how she undertook her final goodbye.
