We are working with the Wildlife Trust to develop a long-term conservation plan, as part of our commitment to sustainable management.

Suitable for any faith or belief, the beautiful Oak Service Hall is available for both funeral and memorial services. Designed to complement its natural setting, the wood timbered building has floor to ceiling windows, offering panoramic views over the South Downs. The Oak Service Hall can accommodate up to 60 people and during warmer weather, the bi-folding doors can be fully opened to give an open air element to your service.
Natural Memorials at Clayton Wood
Natural Memorials
To maintain the beautiful natural environment at Clayton Wood we offer a number of natural memorials instead of a traditional headstone. Graves for full natural burial or cremated remains can be marked with a single wooden plaque. These will biodegrade naturally over time but can be replaced if required. Made from English oak, the plaques are available to order in two different sizes.

    As a celebrant I had the honour of leading an internment here recently and found the venue a very restful and special place. The staff were so helpful. The family all felt that it was a very lovely final resting place. Not being rushed to get through the ceremony made such a massive difference to how we all felt after. Thank you so much - I felt I could give my family the time they needed to say goodbye.
