So what is the appeal?
They have much a much less damaging effect on the environment.
No large stones, no tarmac or even gravel paths. The creation of a beautiful, peaceful site for families to visit. Your family are part of creating a memorial nature reserve for the enjoyment of people, plants and animals for generations to come.
No harmful pollution going into the air. No massive energy use as in cremation even with the newly improved cremators.
The use of biodegradable coffins and control over the use of chemicals going into the ground prevents harm to wildlife and soil quality. You really do go back to nature.
A more relaxed pace enabling you to have the funeral you want without feeling the next funeral queuing up behind you.
Minimal upkeep requirements for anyone.
