About us

The Natural Burial Company is one of the oldest environmentally friendly funeral service providers in the United Kingdom.  Initially formed in 1995 as The Leicestershire Renewable Energy Partnership Limited, The Natural Burial Company opened its first natural burial ground at Prestwold, near Loughborough, in 1998. 

Additional natural burial grounds have since been opened at Scraptoft near Leicester, and Wrottesley Park, near Wolverhampton.  The natural burial team also continue to look for appropriate land to provide environmentally friendly burial services to a greater number of people, and to ensure that our beautiful countryside remains unspoilt, allowing beautiful places to visit and remember, and to leave a natural legacy for loved ones.

The Natural Burial Company works to three key principles.

  • To care for the environment and encourage nature
  • To support the bereaved and provide truly personal burial services and celebrations of life
  • To fight funeral poverty by providing services at reasonable prices

Our team are made up of colleagues experienced in caring for the bereaved and the environment and dedicated to serving all and making a positive difference.

Our services have been honoured on numerous occasions winning national Good Funeral Awards in 2019 and 2021.  We were also finalists in 2022 but did not win on this occasion.

The Natural Burial Company will continue to work with the community, environmental groups, and those wishing for more personalised, green funeral services and celebrations of life, to care for the bereaved and for nature.
