Why natural burial
Our natural burial grounds are set within some of the UK's most beautiful countryside. Unhurried, tranquil and private, they offer a gentler first step on the grief journey.
Natural burial is the most ecological funeral option, a thoughtful legacy for future generations. You can have a sense of peace knowing you'll be in the landscape you love.
With our support and inspiration you'll have the time and space to do things your way. Afterwards, families can return to the quietness of the surroundings, the wildlife and their memories.
