Atlantic Rest Natural Burial

Price increase

Price increase

Added at 12:11 on 23 July 2023

1st July 2023 saw a price increase for our plots and interment fee.  Prices had remained the same before that since 1st January 2020. 

As with everything at the moment, costs have risen and we can no longer absorb them.  We have been absorbing a fuel increase since the government changed the rules in April 2022.  This prevented us from continuing to use red diesel for our mowers and digger.  This meant that the cost doubled overnight. 

Our single plot cost is now £695.   A double plot is now £1230.  The interment fee has risen by £30, now making it £480 (this covers the cost of the grave preparation, tucking in of the loved one and the administration before & after a burial).

Ashes plots have risen a small amount to £250 with the interment fee now at £150. 

We have introduced a new charge for burial of ashes that had received a 'direct cremation'.  This has been necessary because when the main service happens at Penlow as opposed to at the crematorium - it takes many more hours of time to arrange and organise. We were previously charging a flat £125 for ashes interments and this was not covering the cost.  

The new 'direct ashes interment fee' is £300.  I hope that you will understand the necessity for this. 

We hope not to have to increase our prices again for a while, however in these strange times that we find ourselves living in - we will have to monitor things closely. 

If you are visiting our website because you are due to attend a burial with us - please read the following.


Thank you for reading, we understand that this may be a difficult time for you but please read to the end as it will benefit your overall experience on the day.


There will be two temporary signs out in Woolley, the first is a floor sign that indicates you need to turn left, this is a black and orange sign.  You will then reach our banner that will be at the end of the lane.


Parking is limited at Atlantic Rest. If you know that there is likely to be a high number of people attending the burial - please arrange to car share. This doesn’t need to mean from your start point; but can be done from very near your destination.  There is a very large lay-by just after you turn off of the main A39 into Woolley.  Please park there if necessary, and ride down to the site with others.


Please do not in any circumstances drive into Woolley and leave your vehicle on the green (where the first sign is) or on any verges nearby - we have a good relationship with the locals, that we need to maintain.


When you get to the end of the lane, please stop and wind your window down to receive instructions of how and where to park your vehicle.  We manage the parking as best we can but it does require your cooperation.  We ask people to reverse park where possible, so that you can all easily filter out when it is time to leave.


We do have overflow car parking but it is limited.


When parked and congregating with others, please be mindful of other vehicles manoeuvring.


There is a gravel path through the main part of Penlow but you will likely need to walk on the grass too. Please note that high heels will sink.


If you require assistance with mobility - we do have a scooter that we can use for you.  You will only need to sit on it and we will operate the scooter.  Please call in advance if this is required - 07775 726 907.


Thank you for bearing with, and reading this till the end.
