Have you heard of natural burial and wondered what it is? Do you prefer the idea of a ‘natural’ return to the earth?
A natural burial involves being buried in a natural location like woodland or meadow as opposed to a traditional cemetery. This means you can have a woodland burial amid the trees or be buried in a meadow site, even somewhere that animals graze.
For some people, the appeal of the natural burial is the return to nature, where the body is buried in a degradable coffin which means everything eventually returns more quickly to a natural state. For others, it is more about the environmental impact of traditional options.
