Norfolk Bluebell Wood Burial Park is the fulfillment of a seven year vision for Andrew and Caroline Morton who instantly recognised a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a unique legacy at the beautiful Bluebell Wood.
The Morton family bought the land in 2008, Andrew was convinced the ancient wood had to be shared with the community. The vision ensured the Park had to be both financially sustainable and environmentally balanced. A natural burial park was designed to meet peoples needs for a lay to rest provision.
Andrew embraced the concept and spent years planning, studying and visiting natural burial sites all over the UK and abroad.
The ‘At One With Nature’ dream became a reality with the help of a dedicated team of a Landscape Architect and a Planning Consultant who were commissioned to transform another 13½ neighbouring acres of farmland to complement the charm of the ancient wood.
Andrew has created Norfolk Bluebell Wood as a fulfilment of a seven year vision to connect people and nature centred on the established ancient woodland. Having visited numerous burial grounds throughout the UK and Europe his focus is on maintaining a environmentally sustainable and financially balanced Park using his extensive knowledge of land management with a background in agricultural business.
