Most of us, at some point in our lives, and often unexpectedly, have to cope with the death of someone we love.
Then we have to make decisions which offer solace and satisfy our need to pay proper tribute to our loved ones. We also have to offer comfort to ourselves and other family members at a time when we all rightly feel that we have to grieve for those that have left us.
Many people feel unhappy with traditional funerals and conventional funeral practices, burials in ordered and sterile cemeteries, or with cremation which is viewed by many as not environmentally friendly.
We at the Natural Burial Company are here to help.
We are establishing a network of Woodland Areas where people can experience a natural reserve in which wildlife is protected and encouraged to flourish.
The Natural Burial Company offers several Natural Burial (or as they are sometimes known, Green Burial or Woodland Burial) Grounds in the UK with more in the planning stages, so that families, perhaps like yours, can have greater freedom to bury their loved one in a place of natural, unspoilt beauty.
Burial or cremated remains plots can be purchased in advance in order to secure several plots together as a family, or to secure an area of your choosing, overlooking a favoured view or feature in one of our grounds.
We are also open to all beliefs, faiths, religions, churches and denominations and organise funerals and ceremonies, either religious or secular.
