UK residents are increasingly choosing green burial plots as their final resting place

UK residents are increasingly choosing green burial plots as their final resting place

More and more people are planning for a natural funeral as they plan their final journey.

The first natural burial site was opened in 1994 in Carlisle, northwest England, and now there are more than 200 natural burial grounds in the UK. Moreover it would seem that more sites are going to open.

Currently, most natural burial sites are simply green corners in traditional cemeteries managed by council authorities.

But increasingly landowners and farmers are realising the economic and environmental potential of transforming part of a forest or an unused field into a plot for those seeking to be eternally at one with nature.
