A wonderful thing about natural burial grounds is that you notice small things – new flowers, the habits of animals, and the changes that come with changing weather and seasons. We have recently taken a crop of hay from our Cardiff & The Vale farmland burial ground, and that has taken on a new smart look now that the tall swaying grasses have been bailed. We have two burial grounds in the North of Scotland where we have planted new woodland areas to form glades where the burials take place. I don’t get up there frequently and so it’s a real treat to see the new growth and changing nature of the sites.
I was talking to a gathering of Cruse bereavement helpers last night and many were hearing of natural burial for the first time, and thought it sounded “so safe and peaceful” compared to the disturbance and hubbub of the cemetery.
So many thanks from us for spreading the word – Deerton looks wonderful
