Natural Burials

A natural burial (sometimes also called green, eco or woodland burial) involves the body’s natural return to the earth in a bio-degradable coffin or ashes urn without the use of preservation chemicals that can pollute the ground. It has become an increasingly popular choice for eco conscious individuals as an environmentally friendly alternative to a traditional cemetery burial. Some choose a natural burial as they see it as their parting gesture to the environment where their remains are able to rekindle life as a forest or a tree. A natural burial will support and sustain the cycle of life, not compromise it.

For those who wish to have a minimal and simultaneously positive impact on the environment when they pass away, a natural burial at CairnBrae Natural Burial Ground is the perfect choice.
