Photos showing the arrival of 300 boxes of the Fifth Edition of The Natural Death Handbook at the charity's headquarters in May 2012. Additional images were taken at 'Death Fest' at the Southbank Centre 27-29th January 2012, where we spoke to hundreds of people and with their help created a bejewelled pink coffin.
List of Natural Burial Grounds
Golden Valley Woodland Burial Ground, Alfreton, Derbyshire
Set in a tranquil corner of the wooded Golden Valley Country Park, near Ripley, in Derbyshire, this Woodland Burial Ground is truly special, being the only one in the country that has a preserved steam railway line running alongside.
The Woodland Burial Ground is just under one acre in size and is accessed by a footpath that goes into the Country Park from behind the Newlands Inn at Riddings, near Ripley.
