Chapel of Rest

Oakfield Wood is an idyllic and serene woodland burial ground on the banks of the River Stour in North Essex and is now maturing into a stunning and peaceful wildlife habitat supported by the Essex Wildlife Trust. Over 3,000 people have been laid to rest at the site and this has led to the need for a permanent Chapel of Rest and Visitor Centre for those visiting their loved ones.


The Chapel of Rest will compliment the new facility and Woodland Burial Ground to provide a serene and beautiful setting for Funeral, Memorial and Burial Services. The visitor centre will provide the necessary amenities for all those visiting both the Woodland of Remembrance and the incredible wildlife and birdlife, which can be found  within this beautiful Essex Wildlife Trust site.
