Freedom to celebrate your loved one’s life as you wish
We will help you create a funeral or memorial service that best honours the person whose life you are celebrating.
Our barrows provide a beautiful resting place with no restrictions about religion or ritual, which songs you may sing, how loudly you laugh or cry, or how long your service can take. Use of the barrow is free for the day of your service.
Your loved one’s ashes will be placed inside a niche with a stone facade. It is possible to commission a personalised design for the facade or a glass panel which can be opened if you wish to access to the urn. Single, double and multi-urn niches are available, and you can pass them to your next generation.
A place of pilgrimage
Talking to people about their experience of being in the barrow, they say it feels like coming home. Walking up to the barrow gives you time to settle your mind and leave everyday life behind.

What people say about choosing a barrow:
“The barrow, its shape, its natural stone, its location, instantly gave me the same feeling of the past being an essential part of the present, of our lives being a shared history. Of peace and calm and connection. And I am drawn to the barrow as a place of rest and pilgrimage for exactly those reasons.” - Anna
" I have never seen anything quite as spectacular as Willow Row barrow. After losing my brother-in-law, it was imperative to find something as beautiful as his soul for him to rest and this is exactly what we found here at Willow Row barrow." - Alix
