The Natural Burial Company are honoured to have been awarded the title ofBest Bereavement Awareness Event of the Year at the recent Good Funeral Awards. We are proud to have received this aware for our work organising this special event to help provide a greater understanding of bereavement and funeral service. The day itself was a great success with presentations, workshops and an exhibition at the historic and prestigious Prestwold Hall. Christopher Doggett, Managing Director of The Natural Burial Company, said “caring for the bereaved and helping provide information, support and advice is so important. It is our mission to care for the environment and to help all within our society. It is a privilege that so many other caring people, from all areas of bereavement and funeral service, join with us to help make a real difference to the bereaved with their knowledge, support and advice”
At the same awards the Prestwold Natural Burial Ground also received a Highly Recommended commendation as a finalist in the category of Best Burial Ground. Once again, we are honoured that we were nominated for this award and reached the final. We will continue to work hard with all of our burial grounds to ensure that they are beautiful, natural places to remember, encourage nature and provide a wonderful legacy for future generations.
