Natural Burial Plots
If you want to enjoy all the advantages of a full burial, but want to make sure the occasion has only a positive impact on the local environment, a natural burial plot from Tithe Green is the answer.
Set in stunning woodland and meadowland close to Nottingham, Leicester and Peterborough, our eco-friendly burial sites offer everything and more for those seeking to help protect our natural world in death as much as they cared for it in life.
We’re a family-run business that has been offering environmentally-friendly burial solutions for over 30 years and we were voted Best Burial Ground in the UK in 2018. With both woodland and wildflower meadows to choose from and a natural Welsh slate plaque to mark the spot, our sites also mean friends and family will have a truly stunning and tranquil location to visit, reflect and enjoy nature for years to come.
What's the difference between a cemetery burial and a natural burial plot?
Modern coffins and caskets can contain a number of non-biodegradable materials as well as chemicals and toxins that can be damaging to the soil, wildlife and the general sustainability of local habitats.
A natural burial allows you to give something positive back to the planet instead, whether that’s in the form of a new tree planted directly above the coffin in our woodland site, or helping to sustain local biodiversity and attract vital insects and pollinators to our wildflower meadow.
Meanwhile, a natural burial plot can even be cheaper than a traditional one, thanks to there being no need for the kind of maintenance that a traditional plot requires.
All we ask is that any coffin used is 100% biodegradable – you can find a selection of recommended providers in our Useful Resources section.
