I like Clayton Wood. My dear wife's ashes are buried beneath a cherry tree and I find the whole experience of going there comforting and soothing. It's a beautiful location beautifully managed.

From my experience this place is perfect, tranquil with nature all around. At such a sad time the time made things run very smoothly.
