11am Wednesday 31st January at Clandon Wood Natural Burial Ground
When you arrive at Clandon Wood, please stay in the car park until the White Rose team come to you. Mike, Jean and Axel will be having a few private moments together before we all gather.
An intimate service will then be held in the Pavillion.
We recommend you wear suitable footwear as we will be walking across a field towards the end of the service.
Please note, formal black funeral attire is not necessary.
Afterwards, you are invited to join us at The Queen’s Head, East Clandon.
Directions to both venues are provided below.
Clandon Wood Natural Burial Ground
Clandon Wood is within easy reach of the A3 and M25. Clandon station is a 25 minute walk and Guildford station is a short taxi ride away.
From the A3 coming from London: take the B2039 / B2215 (A247) exit off the A3, then take the second exit from the roundabout onto the Portsmouth Road (B2215). This road takes you through Ripley – eventually you will reach a roundabout, take the first exit onto the A247 Clandon Road. Continue on this road driving through West Clandon, then turn left onto the A25 and the entrance to Clandon Wood Natural Burial Ground will be on your left.
Alternative route from the A3: take the Burpham/Merrow exit, then turn left into New Inn Lane just after the BP petrol station signposted towards Merrow, then turn right onto Park Lane B2234 and then turn left onto the Epsom Road A25 signposted towards Dorking and Leatherhead. The entrance to Clandon Wood Nature Reserve and Burial Ground will be on the left hand side after one mile, signposted Clandon Wood Natural Burial (do not take the earlier Clandon Park turnoff).
Toilets, are in the cabins next to the office
The Queen’s Head
The Queen’s Head is located in the village of East Clandon, which is less than a mile from Clandon Wood Nature Reserve.
When exiting from Clandon Wood, you can only turn left onto the A246 Epsom Road, continue on this road and take the first left turning which is The Street. Shortly after you will see The Queen’s Head on the left hand side. There is a large car park next to the pub.
