BURIALS AT ARNOS VALE
Arnos Vale is one of a few cemeteries in Bristol that allows pre-purchase of plots as well as immediate burials in both the traditional cemetery and new Natural Burial Woodland.
Grave plots are available in many areas of the cemetery and, of course, loved ones may be interred in an existing family plot within the grounds. We have also opened up a new Natural Burial Woodland for those wanting a more simple service. Funeral arrangements are usually handled by your Funeral Director. We are happy to discuss the location and availability of plots and we have good relationships with local undertakers. Your funeral director will usually help you order a headstone but we can also refer you to a recommended local stonemason.
Funerals & Memorial Services
You may hold a religious or non-religious memorial gathering at Arnos Vale.
Arnos Vale’s Grade II listed Anglican Chapel, with its simple, classic interior is a beautiful setting to hold a funeral or remembrance service. Those who wish to feel close to nature can hold a service in our Woodland Centre nestled in the natural landscape of Arnos Vale. The buildings may be hired for as long as you need – from an hour to a full day. We can help to arrange music and catering on your behalf. For those holding a Natural Burial in the new woodland there is also an area within the Natural Burial Woodland for a small ceremony.
