Delliefure Woodland Burial Ground is a place where timeless tranquillity and environmental sustainability intertwine.
Unhurried and private, Delliefure offers something gentler. A place of escape, away from it all. The peace and beauty of the countryside are special, whatever the season. It allows you time and space to focus your mind, a place to reflect on life, love and loss.
The sweeping burial ground is flanked on each side by silver birch woodland. At the far end, the glade opens up to reveal the superb river Spey. Here, you and your family can find peace in a truly idyllic setting. And you can bring the dog, have a picnic, or just spend time reflecting and reconnecting.
At Delliefure, we prioritise the preservation of nature. Our burial practices embrace sustainability and encourage the regeneration of local ecosystems. Plant a tree in memory of someone buried at the burial ground or commission a Caithness slate plaque in their memory, to be mounted inside a solid chestnut memorial frame.
We believe that each individual deserves a unique farewell. Whether you envision a simple ceremony or a more elaborate celebration of life, the burial ground can accommodate the personalised event that reflects and honours the person who has died.
By choosing Delliefure, you are actively contributing to the preservation of the special downland landscape for future generations. Our dedication to conservation means that the site will remain a haven of beauty and serenity.
Our knowledgeable and compassionate staff understands the sensitive nature of your decision. We are here to guide you through the process with empathy, ensuring that your experience at Delliefure is both comforting and meaningful.
A natural burial, also called a green burial, is an environmentally friendly and eco-conscious approach to laying a loved one to rest. Unlike conventional burials, which often involve embalming, metal or MDF caskets, imported granite headstones and concrete vaults, natural burials are focused on returning the body to the earth in a way that minimises environmental impact.
Biodegradable materials: The deceased is typically placed in a biodegradable casket, shroud, or container made from natural materials like wood, wicker, or cloth. These materials break down naturally over time.
We provide two options for burials at Delliefure: one for whole-body natural burials and the other for ashes. You can purchase plots next to each other, bury multiple sets of ashes together, or inter ashes with someone who is having a full burial.
We would love you to come and explore the serene beauty of Delliefure Woodland Burial Ground and discover a gentler natural alternative. You can visit the burial ground any time if you would like to explore alone or contact us to arrange a visit or to learn more about natural burial. Either email us or call us on 01479 482028.
The burial ground is located a few miles from Grantown-on-Spey following the B9102.
We recommend that before you make the decision to purchase a burial or interment plot, you go to visit the burial ground, to make sure it is the right place for you and your family.
The site is open all year round during daylight hours so please feel free to visit without making an appointment. If you would like a guided tour around the ground, please get in touch with Duncan, the custodian, who will be happy to meet you there.
