WHAT IS A NATURAL, GREEN, ECO FRIENDLY BURIAL?Natural is earth friendly. Green and eco friendly is using biodegradable materials kind to the environment and nature.
Burials are earth friendly as the coffin, shroud or casket must be eco friendly, made of untreated and bio degradable materials, ideally used from sustainable sources. No varnish, metal or plastic or anything else environmentally unfriendly can be buried.
Graves are no deeper than five feet so the remains return to nature sooner than in a traditional cemetery. Burial plots are side by side and not on top of each other. Ashes can also be buried or scattered.
Gone are the more traditional markers of headstones, trinkets, plastic decorations. If desired a natural local stone can be engraved with name and dates to be laid at ground level on top the grave. Nothing else is permitted. A native tree can planted in memorial in the woodland grounds if desired.
What makes KWB the safest place to be laid to rest?The burial ground is protected for perpetuity by a legally binding Restrictive Covenant. There can never be a change of land use, regardless of owner or lease. Burial rights are forever. Access is forever. The safest and only type of guaranteed resting place available for ever.
