Tree Planting Weekend At Sun Rising Burial Ground

The annual tree planting weekend at Sun Rising Burial Ground will take place from Friday 3rd December to Sunday 5th December this year.

Throughout the weekend, families will be coming to plant trees over graves, cremated remains, and simply to commemorate the memory of loved ones.  Anyone can get involved; if you would like to plant a memorial tree, get in touch as soon as possible.  Staff and volunteers will be there to do the work,  although you are welcome to get stuck in and muddy, too, if you wish.

On the 3rd December, we are also doing some structural planting of trees and shrubs as part of our development of this peaceful, growing nature reserve. As usual, the site will be open to the public throughout the weekend, but we do request that you respect the privacy of families, and be aware that the car park may be busy at times.

You can contact us on 01608 684 600,  or 0779 229 4414.  You can also send us an email at, or visit our new website to learn more and see a list of the trees that we offer.
