What is the cost of a Natural Burial at Clayton Wood and what is included in the service?

A Natural Burial at Clayton Wood at a time and day of your choice is currently from £4270 fully inclusive of all costs. The cost of a funeral is made up of three elements: our services; a coffin; and disbursements.

The price breakdown is as follows. 

 

Our Services £1495 which includes:

  • bringing your loved one into our care from a hospital within a 20 mile radius of Worthing. Extra mileage will be charged accordingly. Bringing your loved one into our care from anywhere other than a hospital (i.e. from home, a nursing home or a hospice) will incur an additional fee of £250.

  • Arranging a time and day convenient to you for the funeral.

  • the provision of a black hearse and four pallbearers to carry your loved one into and out of Clayton Wood Chapel and to inter them into a grave.

  • The attendance of your personal Funeral Director throughout proceedings to ensure the smooth running of events.

  • a personal interview to receive your instructions at our premises or your home.

  • guidance on the Registration of Death.

  • completion of all legal necessities and documentation relating to the funeral on your behalf.

  • 24 hour support and assistance up to the time of the funeral.

  • Collection of floral tribute cards.

  • Distribution of floral tributes within a 5 mile radius.

  • Receipt, listing and distribution of charitable donations.

  • Arrangement of press notices.

 

A coffin £360

  • Provision of a green cardboard coffin, fully lined and fitted, up to and including 6' 1'' x 22'' x 14'' (L x W x D).

 

Disbursements £2415 (third party payments paid on your behalf) which includes:

  • A religious, non-religious, or semi-religious service conducted by either a Minister, a Priest, a Humanist, or a celebrant (£250).

  • A new Grave in Oak Lea Meadow (£1575).

  • Grave Digging Fees for single depth (£590).

 

Therefore as an example, a dignified burial in Oak Lea Meadow at 12 noon at Clayton Wood Natural Burial Ground on a Friday with a hearse and pallbearers, a green cardboard coffin and a celebrant to conduct a semi-religious service in Clayton Wood Chapel would cost a total of £4270.

What our customers say

Tina Cooper

At a time when everything is fraught Rounce's were the epitome of efficiency, understanding & gentle help. So much so that my mum's friend for 60 yrs has arranged to use them for the same type of green burial. And there is no excessive charging of vulnerable relatives. You have as much or as little ceremony as you want.

Alex Lloyd

 

We found rounce funeral directors very respectful and helpful at a difficult and sensitive time. I would happily recommend them to anyone who would like to lay there loved ones to rest with dignity and respect.

Sarah From the UK

Jan and the team were so helpful and supportive at such a sad and difficult time. We were not subjected to any upselling, and there was never any suggestion of pushing 'extra' services that we didn't feel were appropriate.They put us in contact with a wonderful celebrant who also aided and guided us through the process, and the result was a personal and thoughtful funeral that my mother would thoroughly have approved of. In my thank letter to the team, I said that I could understand how someone could want a job like theirs, as they can make such a difference to those left behind. How lovely it was to be cared for by a small independent set up, rather than a faceless corporate company. We can't recommend them highly enough.

Clayton Wood Natural Burial Ground - general information

Opened in 2008 below the Jack and Jill Windmills, Clayton Wood has various dedicated areas for full natural burial and cremated remains, as well as memorial scattering lawns, surrounded by native trees for future generations to enjoy.
