Respect Policy

Whilst we are certain that the vast majority of visitors to our natural burial grounds are caring and respectful, we wish to provide a reminder to all visitors of the standards of respect expected from all: 

The Environment 

  • Do not place any environmentally unfriendly items anywhere on the burial ground. Please consider the impact of any item on the environment, wildlife, and the integrity of the natural burial ground. 
  • Do not plant or seed graves without authorisation, and in such a case seeds/flowers must be native. The Natural Burial Company seed the burial ground annually and can supply meadow flower seeds and native trees upon request. 
  • All rubbish must be removed from the site of the natural burial ground. 

Other Visitors 

  • Please keep noise to a minimum. Playing of music when visiting a grave and loud mobile phone conversations are not appropriate. 
  • Children and dogs must always be under control, and dogs always on a lead. 
  • Any care of graves must be minimal to respect the integrity of the natural burial ground. In such a case do not infringe in any way on neighbouring plots. 
  • Ensure your behaviour and clothing is appropriate to a place of respect and remembrance. Tops must be worn and sunbathing is not allowed. 
  • During funeral services there may be temporary inconvenience for other visitors. There may be problems parking and additional noise, including the playing of music. Please understand that we all have the right to say goodbye to loved ones in an appropriate manner. 

Our Team 

Our team are here to help protect the environment and provide the most appropriate, natural burial ground for those in our care to rest in peace and for visitors to remember in peace and tranquillity. As such, our team must be respected and inappropriate words or behaviour towards them, or about them to others, is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated. 

If you have any concern regarding any breach of our Respect Policy and/or the Regulations of The Natural Burial Grounds, please do not hesitate to contact our team on (0116) 222 0247 or by email
