Charity

donations

We live and work locally, so we want to help the people who live here too.

The cost of delivery not only includes a carbon-offset fee (see here) but we also make a donation to organisations in this area:

Churchyard:

When we attend a resting place within a churchyard, we make a £1 donation to the funds of that church.

Crematorium/Council-maintained cemetery:

If the location we visit is looked-after by Cornwall Council, we will give a £1 donation to Cornwall Hospice to support the wonderful work they do for terminally-ill patients and their families.

 

The un-tamed landscape and the low population density here combine to give a feeling of 'other'. Quiet burial grounds, resting in the landscape, surrounded by wind-stunted trees.

In this rural part of Cornwall, the sea always feels close at hand, and the churchyards blend in to the landscape they have inhabited for hundreds of years. Peaceful, with a sense of remoteness.

Many of the churchyards through this area were established long ago, and the majority of them are associated with small parish churches. Some are sites of worship from the earliest Christian times.

The beautiful and rural Lizard peninsula has numerous - mainly small - burial sites, often closely associated with peaceful parish churches.  Their enclosed churchyards hold a sense of serenity.

The urban feel of the burial sites around Newquay - though with stunning views of the sea - are the exception in this area. The majority of sites are rural in aspect, and many are in close proximity to churches with Celtic foundations

Settings through mid-Cornwall vary from urban graveyards near to Truro, through to tiny, rural locations such as at St Allen. The sea never feels far away, providing wonderful open aspects to locations in the south.

High-density of population through this area - both now and historically - means there is a high concentration of burial locations. The settings vary from those near to old, established churches, to recently-landscaped newer sites. Very often, the sites are over-looked by derelict engine houses -  reminders of past mining activity.
