Property description

Business Description:
Silk Letting Ltd is delighted to welcome to the market this picturesque 16-acre burial land nestled in the heart of South Yorkshire. This business offers a natural, sustainable and attractive alternative to traditional cemetery burials. Unlike traditional burials, you can lay your loved ones to rest in a beautiful woodland environment with undisturbed grounds that are free to grow naturally. This business’ customers come from all over the country.

Each plot can be adorned with a York stone memorial plaque to mark the memory of your loved one, engraved with a customised message to provide a fitting tribute. A tree or shrub can be planed within specific areas as an everlasting living memory. This environmentally friendly business works in conjunction with the National Burial Ground Association and Witcher Wildlife which shows the businesses passion for sustaining existing wildlife and encouraging new wildlife within the grounds.

The business offers multiple types of plots, York Stone memorial plaques and trees of remembrance.

Premises, Fixtures, and Fittings:
This 16-acre site itself is worth £500,000 and has all the relevant planning permissions, registrations etc that can be passed over to the new owner.
Each acre of this beautiful land will generate £800,000 and each acre of the cremated remains alone are worth £1.2m.

Tenure and Financial Profile:
This property is Freehold, and the seller owns the property and the land.
This business benefits from small business rates relief meaning it does not pay any business rates.
The business has sold £24,000 worth of graves in only 5 months!
The current owner is happy to give a 12-month hand over period.

Reason for Sale:
The owner is selling due to other business commitments, this creates the perfect opportunity for any new owner to take over an already well established and profitable business.

This business currently only has 1 member of staff including the owner. This would be a wonderful opportunity to build a dedicated and motivated team from scratch to all work towards a common goal.

Growth Potential:
This business could be expanded to include a Pet Cemetery as many people like to naturally lay their pets to rest and this would be a beautiful area to create an everlasting memory.
This is a truly amazing investment opportunity for people such as funeral directors or long-term investment companies.
The business currently has a beautiful and fully functional website. The website has a price list of services however there is no option to buy online. This should create a bigger target market for the business’ customer base.
The business does not currently have a Facebook or Instagram page. Creating these could help spread awareness of this beautiful space and reach new potential customers.
