About the burial ground
Bath Natural Burial Meadow is part of Clearbrook Farm, a former dairy farm, farmed by Janet Cross and her late husband, Jock.
Sheep, our ‘natural lawn mowers’, will continue to graze the meadow, preserving the appearance of the pastoral landscape.
The spring-fed pond will encourage rich, varied biodiversity. And the heritage orchard, restored with memorial trees, will help safeguard historic varieties of apples.
The way you see it now is as it will stay.
About the landowners
Janet Cross set up the burial ground to know that the farm and land would have a sustainable future. The Cross family are passionate about preserving Midford’s idyllic landscape and protecting the land from development.
Janet’s daughter, Sally Cook, is the custodian at the burial ground. You can contact Sally if you would like to discover more about a natural burial or meet someone at the natural burial meadow for more information.
