Meadow Natural Burial


Voted the winner of Best Burial Ground in the UK in 2018, Tithe Green offers the unique opportunity for natural burial in a stunning East Midlands wildflower meadow close to Nottingham, Leicester and Peterborough.

When you buy a meadow burial plot from us, you’ll be helping to develop an environmentally-friendly and sustainable site for protecting and encouraging biodiversity and local wildlife, as well as a unique place for remembrance, where families, friends and loved ones can connect through nature, memory and conservation.

All purchases come with a memorial plaque carved from Welsh slate, while commemorative memorial trees can also be purchased to be planted only in the nearby woodlands. 

We recommend using biodegradable caskets, and have listed several providers in our Useful Resources section.

Please note that this burial option is for immediate use and is not an advance purchase burial option, although you can purchase the adjacent plot for future needs if desired. For more information on our advance purchase plots, please get in touch.

What kind of coffin can be used at a meadow natural burial plot?

To ensure the sustainability of our wildflower meadow natural burial site, we only allow the use of fully biodegradable coffins, caskets and other burial products. These could be made from a number of materials, including organic and recycled materials like palm or banana leaves, unfired clay, salt or sand.

Meanwhile, we also carry out other sustainable practices at the site, such as wildflower planting days, bee hives on site to encourage pollination, and mowing only twice a year to encourage new growth.

If you think an eco-friendly burial is going to be an expensive option, we’re delighted to tell you that not only do they help the planet, they’re likely to be far more cost effective than traditional funerals.
