What is a Natural Burial Ground or Green Graveyard

In it's most simplistic form a NBG is a graveyard where the land has a second use as a living, developing and natural nature reserve / woodland. Gone are the marble headstones and concrete surrounds that are common place in other Irish burial grounds, replaced instead by a small simple grave marker and the planting of a native Irish tree or sowing of wildflower seed.

In choosing a natural or green burial you will be creating, conserving and sustaining native Irish woodland / wildflower meadow.

It is a gift that will keep on giving to future generations.

Below is a quick table of some of the issues you may wish to consider when choosing between cremation, traditional burial or natural burial.
