At the end of the day, we all want the very best for our departed family members and friends.
People have different visions of what is right for a particular person, and equally, the bereaved, have their own circumstances to consider. We hope the Stratton Memorial Garden and the range of burial options within will assist in meeting everyone's needs.
Overlooked by Whiteleaf Cross on the nearby wooded hillside, the gardens provide a restful setting for those just wishing to get away from the rush of life.
To enable the Memorial Garden to evolve into a place of beauty, memorials, if permitted, are limited in size according to the area chosen for interment, and grave plots will be grassed and form part of the lawns. We would like to encourage people to place their flowers in nearby planting areas, where provided, along with a marker if they wish to provide a focal point. Flowers left on a grave should be of a temporary nature only and will be allowed to remain for a limited period following the funeral, as if left in the growing season will have to be moved for grass cutting. To allow the leaving of items, such as vases, on the lawns on a permanent basis would create a littered effect, as well as being a hazard and a maintenance problem.
Visitors are always welcome. Some come to pay their respects to people they have lost, while others come simply to enjoy the gardens and views. All are asked to be mindful of the role the gardens have and to be respectful.
There is parking available in the main entrance and in addition Princes Risborough is served by a train station and bus routes.
