The People’s Awards – Regional Winner 2024
5 Feb, 2024

We are extremely proud to announce that we are the regional winner in The People’s Awards 2024 associated with the ANBG (Association of Natural Burial Grounds)

After each burial, the family are sent a feedback questionnaire and based on these replies we came in the final top three. This award is based on Customer Service which the GWBP team take great pride in.

Testimonials will be added gradually below. We would like to thank our families for their wonderful feedback.

*We are so pleased we chose the burial site. From initial contact to the day of my Husband’s burial the staff were really supportive in helping us to create a very personal & bespoke celebration of life. They were all very friendly and respectful of our wishes & the burial park is beautiful. Communication was clear and quick both via email and phone.*

*Julie was great with the children – going out of her way to make sure they were able to have the burial plot they wanted for their Mum.*

*Extremely appropriate experience – as stress free and conclusive as is possible during a difficult time. Such a relaxing park with dedicated staff that worked very well with the Funeral Director to provide exactly what we asked for.*

*Julie’s kindness and help meant such a lot to me as I was dealing with the sudden and unexpected death of my dear Husband. Her gentle manner and calmness shone through the grief.*

*Gunton Woodland Burial Park provides a beautiful and peaceful resting place for our dearly missed Mum. The tranquility amongst ever changing seasons would have been what Mum wanted and cherished.*

*If our Dad was alive, we both know he would have loved this place and we did him proud. He was a member of Greenpeace so the whole aspect of it being eco friendly with native trees is perfect.*

*A natural woodland setting which is a very peaceful place to visit.*

*Loved the natural setting – No bling or tat! A very peaceful and pleasant area.*

*Julie was super helpful, providing great advice, which helped us give Dad a really appropriate send off amongst his friends & family who all understood the importance of the location and what a woodland burial would have meant to him.*

*On the day of the funeral, we knew we had made 100% the right decision to inter Mum at Gunton Woodland. It was peaceful, natural and drew lots of lovely comments from family and friends. Staff were very attentive.*

* The initial contact was with Julie and she showed great empathy and understanding from the very start. She was present during the interment and was very helpful and comforting and all the staff remain so to date. I was very grateful and also to the funeral directors.*

*Wonderful access at all times of day. Staff were very supportive from our initial meeting and throughout the process of choosing a plot and being invited to monthly coffee mornings. The grounds are managed so well and i enjoy such peace every time I sit there. The trees surrounding the glades are very beautiful and there is an enormous variety. We had a quiet graveside service and Julie stood in the background giving us quiet reassurance. I hope that this may help to illustrate what a caring, special and unique place Gunton Woodland Burial Park is.*
