Become one with nature and choose an eco-friendly alternative

Natural burial grounds are special places for remembrance that family and friends are free to roam, and are great assets to the environment

If you want your passing, or that of a loved one, to bring some benefit to the environment, then natural burial is a great choice. Natural burial grounds have a much less manicured appearance than traditional cemeteries as they are managed to encourage wildlife.

Peace Funerals introduced natural burial to South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire when they created the South Yorkshire Woodland Burial Ground (on the Rotherham/Sheffield border) and the Golden Valley Woodland Burial Ground (near Alfreton) nearly 25 years ago. We have more experience of providing natural burial services than any other funeral director in the region.

There are now a number of other places in the region where you can have a natural burial and these include sections within Hope Cemetery and Wisewood Cemetery, and a dedicated natural burial ground in Stannington. Allow us to help you with your funeral arrangements whichever you choose.

I really couldn't commend Gavin and his team at Peace Funerals enough. From our initial telephone calls to the day of our Mum's funeral nothing was ever too much trouble.
