Burial Scheme

There is also an option for Woodland Burial at Cheshunt for which there is an additional one-off fee of £1,800 (£2,100 for a double). You can find out more about Woodland Burial here.


Please indicate your burial intentions

NNLS is a member of the Jewish Joint Burial Society (JJBS) to which a compulsory fee (£55 per adult) is payable for all Jewish members in addition to your synagogue subscription. This will entitle a member, after 6 months of membership, to a burial at the Western Cemetery Cheshunt.


Non-Jewish partners are also able to be members of the JJBS scheme if they wish to but this is not compulsory. The scheme allows mixed faith couples to be buried together in a double depth grave in either the Woodland or Lawn sections of the Cemetery.

The Woodland Cemetery allows members to choose to be buried in an environmentally-friendly way, in a beautiful natural environment, surrounded by newly planted trees. The burial can include a coffin made from plain wood, bamboo or wicker, all which decompose naturally. If you wish, the grave can be marked with a small flat gravestone which is intended to sink into the ground over the years. There is an additional one-off fee of £2,100 for a double depth grave in the Woodland Cemetery. 

The Lawn section provides a green alternative with graves being marked by a simple upright stone. There is no additional fee for the Lawn section. 


You can find out more about Woodland Burial here.


Please indicate your burial intentions

If you are joining JJBS for the first time and you are aged 50 or over, there is a Burial Scheme Late Entry Fee payable dependent on your age at joining. See below for details.
