From the moment we met Tracy, the stress and worry about arranging a simple, tasteful and very personal cremation for my father was lifted from my small family. 

Tracy listened to our wishes and enabled us to give my father the goodbye we really wanted. She supported us through every step with kindness and genuine compassion. 

She was always up front with pricing and suggested a wonderful florist. Quality and good practice was the hallmark of everything she did. Having experienced making other funeral arrangements, I would wholeheartedly recommend Woodland Wishes and I am so glad we chose Tracy and her team in arranging my father's last journey.

From the first late night call to Tracy I knew we were in safe hands. Woodland Wishes was the perfect choice for us as we wanted to organise a personal cremation for my mother who passed away after a long battle with MS. 

Tracy arranged everything perfectly - we had a beautiful simple ceremony with just the right personalised touches and it all went like clockwork. The hedgerow flowers bouquet were so beautiful I can't praise them highly enough. 

Overall I would have no hesitation highly recommending Tracy and Woodland Wishes and also Cambridge Crematorium - which found our music choices for us and was lovely and quiet on a Saturday.

I just wanted  to thank you again for all you did for us last Friday and the days leading up to it. I know it's your job, but we really did appreciate the care and sensitivity you brought to handling  my sister's funeral.

It gave us all great comfort to be able to celebrate her life in such a personal way, as she wanted, and everyone I spoke to that afternoon said what a moving, uplifting ceremony it was. We all agreed that she was right there with us, and that was in no small part due to your unobtrusive expertise.

I had some specific and unusual wishes for my husband's funeral.  Tracy was truly wonderful and was able to accommodate all my wishes in every detail in a caring and helpful way, going the extra mile, even out of hours. The funeral was beautiful and everything, including the technology, went without a hitch.  I had many comments from family and friends saying that this was the best funeral they had ever attended. Tracy's conducting of the event was a great comfort to me.  I can't thank Woodland Wishes enough for their exceptional service.

I cannot speak too highly of the way the Barton Glebe staff and Woodland Wishes helped me and my family as we struggled to come to terms with the unexpected death of Fiona, dearly loved by us all, who was the central pivot of our close family.  From the first signs that something serious was wrong to her death, there were less than two weeks.  In that time however she was well able to express her wishes for the manner in which her funeral should be conducted.

We had both decided a few years ago that we wanted to be interred in the Barton Glebe Woodland Cemetery, eventually side by side, though we had not done anything about it.  From the first, our contact with the Barton Glebe staff was immensely reassuring.  They tactfully made recommendations for choosing a funeral director and guided us towards what was undoubtedly the right choice, Tracy O’Leary of Woodland Wishes.

Tracy understood immediately what Fiona, through us her family, wanted - a humanist celebration of Fiona’s 70 years, her love for her family, her support for her friends, her many creative talents, her enthusiasms and hobbies.  Fiona had given exact instructions about who should speak and on what topic, and Tracy helped us come up with an overall plan to deliver this.  She also helped us choose a celebrant, and had some very good ideas about how to lay out the Lodge with photographs and products of Fiona's hobbies and handicrafts.  Tracy’s suggestion that those attending could bring a flower or something simple from their gardens was just right.

When we realised that the numbers to expect at the ceremony were going to be far greater than we originally thought, she seamlessly reassured us that a marquee could be made available.  She then proceeded to arrange everything with the greatest efficiency and tact - reserved seats, catering, music and so on.  She and the Barton Glebe staff were so helpful on the day, setting everything up, parking huge numbers of cars, ensuring that everyone was in the right place at the right time.  Nothing was forgotten, nothing was too much trouble.  The only thing that I can honestly say I don’t think she managed was the weather: it was a near perfect day for November but I do not believe that even the Barton Glebe staff and Tracy could actually have fixed that up.

We have had so many letters afterwards to say that the occasion was very special, and that Fiona was given the wonderful farewell ceremony that she wanted and deserved.

Thank you, Barton Glebe and Woodland wishes, from the whole family.

Elaine specified a green funeral in her will. Because of her illness she was able to have an input into her funeral ceremony and at our first meeting Tracy 'got it' immediately. Her understanding, kindness and professionalism ensured that the funeral was all that Elaine had asked for.

My predictions of an attendance of about 75 people were wildly out and on a swelteringly hot day more than three times this number actually turned up. The flexibility and hard work of Woodland Wishes and the staff at Barton Glebe (huge thanks due here too) ensured that the day was an uplifting celebration of Elaine's life. All the colours under the sun were represented (Elaine's instructions were no traditional funeral black to be worn), the  scent of lavender was in the air and Elaine's favourite track 'Walking on on Sunshine' filled the PA.

In following days I received many emails and calls telling me how much a difficult day had been turned into one of uplifting beauty.

Inevitably this was a sad time but in being able to pay our respects in such a positive and vibrant way, all that knew Elaine have been helped in our quest to deal with the untimely death of a truly inspiring person.

Thank you, Tracy, Barbara and Liz.

For anyone wishing to look at a positive alternative to the traditional, Woodland Wishes is the place to find that alternative.  The place to celebrate a life in it's individuality and as it was lived.

I cannot begin to say how much the help and gentle guidance Tracy gave us at such a difficult time helped both me and my sister.

Tracy was always professional but also so very kind. It is very hard to put into words just how much she quietly helped to make my father's funeral very special indeed. So beautiful in fact that several of the people who attended the service have told me that it has helped them to make decisions about their own funerals.

The funeral we organised through Woodland Wishes was exactly what we hoped for. Tracy listened carefully to what we we wanted as a family, made thoughtful suggestions, and helped us to put it together in a way which felt right for us. We had complete confidence in her taking care of what she committed to do. she managed to get the balance of being supportive and non intrusive spot on.

We were recommended Woodland Wishes by a friend and had already attended a funeral arranged by Tracey. When we made our initial contact we were warmly and sympathetically greeted. and assured that Woodland Wishes would be available to help us immediately they were needed, day or night. Service continued in this manner until the cremation was completed and ashes collected. We cannot thank Tracey and her team enough for the professionalism, warmth and elegance with which they conducted their business. We would highly recommend them.

Tracy’s care, attention and kindness when taking care of my mother and her funeral was simply excellent.  She made it possible for us to give my mother the respect we wanted for her, and a burial ceremony completely free of the ghastly impersonality that so often creeps in. The Woodland burial was completely free of the feeling that time was pressured to make way for others in either preparation or on the day. It was unexpectedly uplifting and has made the grieving process for us all inexpressibly gentler.

 

 

 

From the moment I first spoke to Tracy over the phone I felt assured.

 

It was beyond helpful that she reacted swiftly and out of hours when the time came and that she came to our house to discuss details after my mother's death. I knew that all was well and would go according to the best of plans from then on. Her suggestions and careful listening could not have been bettered. I didn't feel the need to question or check again before seeing her on the day of the funeral, a relief at a time when there is necessarily a vast amount to attend to. It meant that we could concentrate on exactly how we wanted things to be for my mother's burial, as a family.

 

 

 

I recommend Tracy and Woodland Wishes unreservedly.

We wanted to have a simple dignified funeral for my atheist father. Tracy, Woodland Wishes, was mentioned by the Arbory Trust woodland burial site as perhaps being able to help us do what we hoped. Indeed, Tracy was knowledgeable, helpful and kind. She was a discrete but lovely presence, making sure things happened with quiet confidence and total efficiency. She listened to what we wanted, made helpful suggestions of options without ever trying to influence our choices. She gave us confidence in our choices and made it all happen from big issues to the smallest detail.  Everyone who met her, family and friends, liked her too! Thanks Tracy!
