internment of Human Ashes
have received numerous requests to intern ashes on
the Green from relatives of deceased visitors who
enjoyed the Green when they were alive. We are not
a Garden of Remembrance however, we are willing to
accommodate such requests provided they follow agreed
guidelines set out in our Policy on this issue.
Uckfield Millennium Green is an open space for community
use. It is less formal than a park, and areas are
left to grow wild to be a haven for wild life. Only
native species of plants and trees have been planted
to ensure it meets criteria set out by the Countryside
Agency and to blend into the local Wealden countryside.
The Green is owned by a community-based charity and
the people, who run the Charity, the Trustees, are
bound by the terms set out in the Trust Deed.
Policy is to reserve the area called "The Apostles"
for human ashes to be scattered. No signs or notices
will be allowed in this area to mark this internment
but instead a page will be reserved in a Book of Remembrance
that will be held by the Secretary of the Trust. This
page will be issued to the family of the deceased
to allow them to mark the occasion with their own
personal messages. Once the page is returned it will
be incorporated into the Book of Remembrance and a
copy of that page will be returned to the family for
their records. This book will be available for inspection
at the Annual General Meeting of the Uckfield Millennium
Green and upon other reasonable notices of request
to the Secretary of the Trust.
other plants or trees shall be erected on the Green
without the express permission of the Trustees.
you would like to make us of this service, please

To help maintain the Green, a minimum donation of
£30 is requested. If
you could complete a Gift Aid form with the donation
it does enable us to claim additional funding from
the Tax Authorities. (Click

note that this area is only reserved for Human ashes.
If you wish to scatter the ashes from a four legged
visitor to the Green please contact us by e-mail at
