BBC Film Crew at Wrottesley Park Natural Burial Ground

Wrottesley Park Natural Burial Ground, near Wolverhampton, was recently visited by a BBC film crew filming a documentary on the excellent work conducted by funeral celebrants.

The Natural Burial Company and many celebrants share the same ethos of care and personalisation of funeral services and ensuring that every detail is as it should be.

We were extremely pleased that those involved with the making of the documentary appreciated our beautiful, peaceful, natural burial ground and that it was deemed a perfect example of a tranquil spot for saying a final goodbye to a loved one.
