Riverview Natural Burial Ground- open 1st April 2019

Riverview is Kent Natural Burial’s new site and is now open for pre-purchasing of plots and immediate need. Our first site Deerton, in Teynham, sold out after 11 years of operation and now only serves those who hold a pre-purchased plot or who are joining someone already buried there.

This new, elevated site has far reaching views, north, over the Swale estuary and the Thames beyond. It is intended that the site should develop visually in a similar way to Deerton. Families are welcome to visit Deerton to understand how the new site will look in just a few years once the new landscaping and memorial tree planting settles in and becomes established. Riverview has the option to extend over further land in time enabling it to serve the natural burial needs of the Medway towns and north Kent communities long into the future. The site sits high above a tidal creek with all the interesting bird species this brings in close. You can also see hugh numbers of dragonflies here in the summer months

Our Natural burial grounds are run and managed on ecologically sound basis giving people choice and  access to a gentle and environmentally friendly way to lay their loved ones to rest.

Riverview has three “rooms” within our natural burial ground for you to choose from; the beech room, guelder/ dog rose room and holly room as the names suggest each room is surrounded by hedgerow of beech, guelder and dog rose and holly.  We have ample parking and a compost loo suitable for disabled use.We carry out a maximum of two burials a week as we don’t wish our families to be rushed when planning their goodbyes for loved ones.

Below is an artist impression of what Riverview will look like in years to come.
