We provide a wide variety of environmentally friendly memorials to help local wildlife and encourage nature. Whilst we can supply suitable nest boxes or homes for most native species the most popular choices are:
Bird nesting boxes provide a welcome refuge for the myriad bird species that are found at our burial grounds.
Placed on established or mature trees, these nesting boxes are a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loved one, in the knowledge that in doing so they are nurturing new life and providing protection for native and visiting bird species that might otherwise find it challenging to raise their offspring.
Several native species such as members of the Tit family, Finches, Goldcrests, Chiffchaffs and other Warblers, Robins and other Flycatchers, Dunnocks, Redwings, Fieldfares and other Thrushes, Waxwings, Wrens, Woodpeckers and summer visitors such as the Blackcap, Yellowhammer and other members of the Bunting family, as well as the odd owl have been spotted in the surrounding woodlands, fields and on the burial grounds themselves, with even a rare visiting Hoopoe spotted near to one of our grounds.
Bat roosting boxes offer a place for several species of bats to find shelter and a suitable location to roost in whatever the season.
Discretely placed on trees on our burial grounds, these roosting boxes give sanctuary for one of the few species protected by law in the UK. Placing a bat roosting box near a loved one provides these delicate and enigmatic mammals with a safe haven and so becomes a key part of our company’s, and indeed our national ecology and conservation programmes.
Our bat roosting boxes are designed to be adaptable so that several of our native or visiting species of bat can use the boxes year round, either as hibernation roosts, breeding roosts or simply as a base from which to forage in the surrounding woodlands and countryside.
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.
