One question that we get asked by our families is, 'can we bring the dog to the funeral? For those who want their furry family members at the funeral we feel that this should be allowed which is why all of our natural burial grounds are pet friendly, so our answer to this is, ‘Yes of course’.
At the moment home working has become the norm, and Sarah our custodian at Pembrokeshire Natural Burial Ground is also doing some home schooling with her son Jesse. They had been tasked with making a bird feeder and decided that they wanted to do something natural. They have shared with us, ‘how they made a natural pine cone bird feeder’.
Hi, I am Seren Richards, the burial grounds manager’s daughter. My nan’s ashes are in Usk and we chose here because it is local and we can visit her whenever we would like too! The day we went for a walk there all of the family knew that this is where she would want to be. In the summer months, we would all spend the afternoon there and bring a picnic with us. We all love the openness and freedom that the meadow has to offer!
