Olney Green Burial

Opened in May 2000 the burial ground, set in nearly ten acres, is surrounded by permanent pasture in a area designated for agricultural use only, located on the gently sloping sides of the valley of the Great Ouse river and overlooking the small country town of Olney.

Set in beautiful countryside the burial ground is peaceful but not isolated being within a few miles and easy reach from Milton Keynes, Bedford and Northampton.

The area currently in use for burials is fenced to exclude grazing sheep and the grass allowed to grow naturally and has become a haven for grass loving wild life and numerous wild flowers. Access to graves is by pathways mown through the grass during the summer months.

The ecology will gradually change as the Memorial trees planted on the graves grow and begin to shade the ground. Grasses will diminish in favour of woodland flowers and in a similar way meadow wildlife will gradually give way to woodland species.

The Memorial trees will be supported by the planting of understorey species such as hazel, holly, thorn and field maple which in time can be managed by coppicing providing an ideal environment for woodland wild flowers.
