Currently under construction our beautiful round barrow is beginning to emerge like layers of geology rising from the earth. Once completed it will offer an amazing permanent resting place for cremated remains.
Enter the round barrow; an eternal circle that connects us to the ancient burials of our forefathers, in the profound peace of the earth, cocooned from the elements. In a world where so much is transient, we find ourselves looking back for something permanent, something that tethers us to a place or time.
Placing an urn containing the ashes of a loved one into a stone niche in the silence of the barrow addresses the formal ritual for honouring a life and the spiritual journey for those who mourn. Finding a suitable final resting place for one you love is so important for the soul of the living. Once the cremation has taken place, a farewell ceremony/service may be held in our barn followed by a ceremonial walk to the barrow for the placing of the urn. Of course, no formal ceremony has to take place just one or two family may wish to attend a private placement.
At Higher Ground Meadow we assist families in holding the type of farewell that exactly reflects their wishes, lifestyle and beliefs. To find out more or to arrange a visit to the burial grounds or the round barrow, please contact us:
