Brandwood End Cemetery was planted with deciduous and evergreen trees, popular at the time. The tree walk goes through the central and oldest area of the cemetery, starting by the Lodge.
The Friends Of Brandwood End Cemetery have put together this tree walk around the cemetery grounds. More information on The Friends Of Brandwood End together with details of this tree walk can be found at www.fbec.org.uk.
Various options are available for grave tending with seasonal plants and Christmas Wreaths. Please see our memorials page for further details.
We can now only offer Ashes plots for the burial of two sets of cremated remains. These are to the right of the chapels, in the Diamond Wood area.
Diamond Wood - Woodland Area
In celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II a new cremated remains section has been opened at Brandwood End Cemetery, the Woodland is named Diamond Wood and can be found just inside the entrance of the cemetery on the left hand side.
The area has been planted with 23 native trees to develop the woodland setting and more trees may be planted at a later date if necessary.
Ashes plots are available to purchase or reserve and are located in a line within the hedge boundary.
