Burial Costs


Our Wooden Bier and Shelter

We offer the use of our wooden bier and shelter to every funeral, at no additional cost. We actively encourage families to use the wooden bier, and participate in carrying their loved one to their final resting place. 

Wales is, of course, known for its rainy days and therefore the shelter can be used for funeral gatherings during poor weather. The shelter is a new addition to Hay Meadow Burial Ground, having been constructed and designed by us in May 2019. We also display the Welsh Slate Heart memorials in the shelter which overlooks the Meadow and Woodland.

Companion Plots

In the UK, a burial ground must be separately licensed before they can allow the burial of pet ashes. We are proud to be one of very few places in the UK which offer companion plots, permitting you to be buried with the ashes of your much loved pets. However, due to strict guidelines, we are only able to offer the burial of ashes within specific areas of the Meadow and Busnant Wood. 

In The Woodland - £900

*Plots can be purchased in advance, or reserved for a fee of £100 per plot*

Right of Burial

When purchasing a ‘Right of Burial’ on your chosen plot, it is secured; whether you occupy it immediately or in 10, 20 or 60 years time. The purchase of a Right of Burial is for the right to burial in the plot only and does not confer ownership of the ground or any other rights. If you choose to purchase a plot in advance, you will be given a Right of Burial Certificate which provides details of the chosen plot, including its location using co-ordinates generated using permanent markers - trig points - within the site. 


The grave preparation and administration fees may rise over time and are payable when a burial takes place. However, should your plot remain unoccupied within 30 years from date of purchase, your Right of Burial will expire unless you contact us and re-sign – at no extra cost, to confirm that you still wish to be buried with us. Of course, if you move home you will also need to notify us so we can do our best to try and contact you.  


*Please note a Right of Burial is not transferable*


Plots can only be purchased directly from Hay Meadow Burial Ground.


We appreciate that sometimes situations can change. Refunds will be issued on request, based on the original purchase price and subject to an Administration Fee of £100 per plot.
