The Gardens

Follow paths through the magnificent themed gardens, enjoying the peace and tranquillity

THE TEMPLE

Graceful silver birch stand sentinel around this garden focal point, overlooking an ornamental lake in which the jewel colours of large koi can be glimpsed

The heat-loving plants on the south-facing Terrace get the sun all day long

Tucked away and cocooned by hedges, relax and contemplate to the restful trickling of waterfalls and tranquil sounds of nature

THE GARDEN OF PEACE

THE GARDEN OF TIME

Three round beds bisect this garden ‘room’, filled with colourful bedding plants. Surrounding them, clipped conifers conceal stone benches where visitors can sit and reflect in peace

LITTLE SPRINGS

“Each new life, no matter how brief, forever changes the world.”

Dedicated to children who have passed away, this area features soft planting and colourful flower beds. Looking down across the Gardens, a Barbican memorial holds plaques for babies who were born sleeping.

At the Garden’s highest point sits a series of circular beds, dotted with memorials and packed with beautiful, fragrant roses. From vibrant oranges and sunny yellows, through to searing reds and blushing pinks, the roses’ velvety petals perfume the air all summer.

HILL OF ROSES

THE GARDEN OF THE SEA

An ocean of blue slate, flecked with tumbled glass chippings which sparkle like sunlight on water

Water-lovers of all kinds are remembered in this special garden ‘room’. Rock-edged ‘island’ beds are planted with soft grasses and fragrant lavenders, surrounding large anchors, chains and a wooden jetty

Just as each individual is unique, so is the manner in which they will be remembered. Here, each family can select the perfect plot and memorial for their loved one’s ashes – somewhere that has special meaning to them

A wide range of memorials is available, from carved marble to polished granite and wooden benches to stainless steel boats
