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
South Yorkshire Woodland Burial Ground, Sheffield, South Yorkshire
The South Yorkshire Woodland Burial Ground has been described as the most beautiful cemetery in the area.
The triangular site, which is just over two and a half acres, and has now been open for about ten years, can be found on a quiet country lane running between the villages of Ulley and Aston-cum-Aughton, to the east of Sheffield, less than five minutes drive away from junction 31 of the M1.
The Woodland Burial Ground is surrounded by fields and has a small stream running along its boundary with the neighbouring field.
Families who have loved ones buried there often remark how tranquil the site is - an oasis of peacefulness, and yet so near to Sheffield, Rotherham and the motorway network.
