Large memorial plaques are available, made from natural slate, and engraved with your choice of words. These plaques are erected on one of the many memorial posts on the site, usually near to the plot you have chosen.
Bird nesting boxes and bat roosting boxes are also available, and provide a very practical and conservation minded memorial to a loved one buried at one of our natural burial grounds. These items are placed either on mature trees that already exist on the burial grounds or on trees that have been planted as part of the establishment of the grounds themselves.
Many people choose a memorial tree to be planted on the grave as a living reminder of a loved one that itself will support life well into the future, providing habitats and shelter for many species of birds, other wildlife as well as flora and fauna.
Memorial trees can also be planted elsewhere on the natural burial grounds, away from the areas dedicated to burials. It is not necessary to have a family member or loved one buried on the site to choose this popular option, and indeed all of our memorial items on our burial grounds, including bird nesting boxes, bat roosting boxes, benches, plaques both large and small are placed in the grounds simply to provide a fitting memorial to a loved one, maybe to be visited from time to time and so offer a peaceful place of natural beauty to remember your loved ones by.
Direct cremation is now a common choice for funeral services, however, many people don’t know that direct natural burial is available. This offers all the advantages of direct cremation whilst also protecting the environment and providing a beautiful, natural legacy.
An increasing number of people are planning their funeral in advance. The Natural Burial Company can help you make decisions and you can buy a woodland burial plot in advance at todays price.
