About Sacred Stones
Formed in 2014, Sacred Stones Ltd is dedicated to creating meaningful final resting places for cremation ashes, inspired by the ancient burial mounds of our prehistoric ancestors.
Based in Bedfordshire, Sacred Stones is a private company formed by Toby Angel, Mark Davis, Martin Fildes and Geraint Davies. Martin and Geraint were responsible for designing and building The Long Barrow at All Cannings Wiltshire, the first long barrow in circa 5,000 years.
The inspiration for Sacred Stones is based entirely on the publics reaction to, and emotional connection with The Long Barrow - The barrow has become a venue to celebrate life, providing a wonderfully natural alternative to modern day memorials and cemeteries.
Sacred Stones is a member of The Good Funeral Guild
What is a Sacred Stones barrow like?
Stepping inside the barrow a stillness descends. Niches line the walls, a central passageway bisects the circular chamber which is illuminated by candles to bring a warm and natural radiance to the interior. The dressed limestone walls reach up to stone lintels which support the striking beehive-shaped corbelled roof above.
