A natural burial, sometimes known as a woodland burial or a green burial, is a way for us to manage the end of our lives in a positive way. Woodland and meadow burial is a practice that has gone on for centuries and is today enjoying a revival. It allows us to choose where our ultimate resting place will be and by choosing Old Park Meadow Natural Burial Ground, you can have peace of mind that you will rest in scenic surroundings forever connected to nature, where family and friends can return and see the landscape grow with each passing year.
Environmental Impact of a Natural Burial
A natural burial allows us to minimise our eventual impact on the environment by committing the body to rest in natural materials that will biodegrade and leave no harmful substances behind. At Old Park Meadow we care deeply about the environment. It is the objective of our natural burial ground to establish beautiful meadows and woodland, which in turn create a variety of safe, natural habitats for plants and wildlife, using traditional, balanced land management techniques.
