We have already organised visits to these two burial ground (CDs available from the Trust from May 2012 or see their web sites and the Natural Death Centre's website for other recognised natural grounds in your own area). We are planning a further visit to Ham Down Burial Ground with a talk by its owner, and one to the local cemetery

There is a strange synchronicity in that there are links between Sturminster Newton where the office is situated and where much of the social support began and Glastonbury where the land and further projects lie. Sturminster Newton was once ‘the property of King Edgar, the Manors of Sturminster and Newton were, by 1016 owned by the Abbots of Glastonbury, and remained under their authority until the dissolution of Glastonbury in 1539.
PLEASE RESPECT OUR NEIGHBOURS WHO HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SO CONSIDERATE TOWARDS US; AND PLEASE NOTE THAT, IN LINE WITH OUR POLICY OF CONSERVATION, WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO WALK TO THE SITE. AS YET NO CARS ARE ALLOWED TO BE PARKED IN THE LANE LEADING TO ROSELAND, OR ON THE LAND ITSELF, UNLESS BY SPECIAL PERMISSION. THANK YOU
FOR INFORMATION AND HELP REGARDING ANY ASPECTS OF ‘ROSELAND’ AND ‘GODNEYMOORLAND’ BURIAL OF ASHES, TREE PLANTING AND COMMEMORATION, PLEASE CONTACT DAVID WASLEY ON 01458 831641
Julia Hailes' Green Death Tips
  • Donate your organs
  • Say no to embalming
  • Remove all jewellery and gold teeth before burial or cremation
  • Dress minimally in death
  • Use natural fibres such as hemp for cloths
  • Select a 'green' coffin
  • Do without a head stone
  • Give cremation a miss: burning our dead is an environmental disaster
  • If you're buried, find a site that will be used for other purposes
  • Burying as deep as six feet under, there is little air and therefore no worms, and pretty few microbes working away at turning us to mulch.
