Golden Valley Woodland Burial Ground

Golden Valley Woodland Burial Ground forms part of the Golden Valley Country Park and is accessed from Newlands Road, Riddings, about two miles from the centre of Ripley. It is unique amongst woodland burial grounds being the only one in the country that is bounded on one side by a heritage steam railway line. You approach the burial ground by following a 100m track that runs parallel, and next, to the railway line. It is open to people of all faiths and to people of none.

 

In line with Peace Funerals’ philosophy of promoting funeral choice, families are allowed to select where their loved one’s plot is to be, within a limited choice of available plots.  

 

You have the choice of having a plot with a tree, a plot with a shrub, or a plot with no tree (please note - if you choose a plot with a tree these are only availble as single depth plots. All other full burial plots are double depth) The costs for the full burial plots and grave digging are as follows: - See more at:

As the burial ground is not a deliverable address, it doesn’t have a postcode. But if you’re using satnav, you may want to enter the postcode of the former Newlands Inn DE55 4ES, which is located on the same side of Newlands Road but a further 150m down the road from the access track.
