Almost half of England’s cemeteries could run out of space within 20 years, and a quarter of 358 local authorities responding to a recent BBC survey said that they would have no more room for burials within a decade.
Woodland Burials plants a tree at each grave, creating a woodland, a wildlife sanctuary and a nature reserve.

And the beautiful woodland setting makes a far more tranquil and pleasant place for reflection than a traditional, and increasingly crowded, cemetery.
