Why natural burial
As well as being the most ecological option, natural burial is all round a gentler and better experience.
We are passionate about changing people’s funeral experiences for the better. By offering support, guidance and inspiration, we help families arrange a day to be remembered - not an occasion to be endured.
Our natural burial grounds give people the freedom to do things their way. Unhindered by the time constraints of a crematorium, a more fitting funeral for the person who has died.
A natural burial can form part of a traditional or contemporary funeral. Unhurried, tranquil and private - a gentler first step on the grief journey.
