Natural Burial Ground

HLF-BIG Logo (blue-cropped)

The creation of a Natural Burial Ground is a major feature of the Northwood Cemetery Heritage Project.

Work has now completed on clearing and landscaping two overgrown and unused plots at the far (south) end of the Cemetery hitherto known as Plots 40 and 41

(please click here for a detailed map of the Cemetery).

This site will be the first municipally owned area for natural burials on the Island –

but it will not come into use until the ground has settled after extensive ground works (not expected to be before 2018).

A plan of the Natural Burial Ground is available to view here.
