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.
 
The inspiration for Sacred Stones is based entirely on the publics reaction to, and emotional connection with The Long Barrow at All Cannings. The barrow is  a venue to celebrate life, providing a natural alternative to modern memorials and cemeteries.

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 to have been built in England for circa 5,000 years. 
Creating  a Unique Memorial

All of the niches have a front cover often designed by family members as a unique memorial to celebrate the life of their loved one. 
The covers can be made of stone and glass.  Some have small cut outs to view and touch the urns and others can be opened and accessed.

"I echo the other reviewer's comments about the peace and simple sanctity of the Barrow and cannot praise enough the Sacred Stone's team for their highly motivated caring and professional treatment fo myself and my family through a very important transition in our life"

Our barrow sites are secular welcoming all irrespective of their beliefs. Your commemorative experience(s) can be simple or elaborate, with or without a celebrant, and can last as long as you need.  Choice is important, grief needs time without constraint and we know, through testimony, this is what a barrow provides.

What's 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.
