Set in peaceful, natural countryside, woodland burials provide a more sustainable alternative to traditional cemeteries and churchyards.
Natural burial sites do not usually allow the grave to be marked with a permanent memorial. Those that do, allow you to plant a tree on the grave with a simple metal, wooden or slate memorial plaque. Usually, no other grave ornaments are allowed, which means that visiting the precise site of the grave may be difficult without the aid of GPS.
With no headstones or other markers, the whole site acts as a memorial to everyone who is buried there, rather than just the grave itself, and retains the splendour of the surrounding landscape and enhances biodiversity.
