Elizabeth’s husband, Graeme, was only thirty when he died of terminal cancer.Elizabeth
When he read about ‘Natural Burials’ he decided that was what he wanted: ‘under a tree, in a wicker coffin, in the Kent countryside with a space for myself at his side’.
Thank you for setting up Deerton Natural Burial Ground where my husband is buried. It is a wonderful, picturesque, respectful place. I feel at peace knowing that it is my husband’s new home – and my home in the future. It is exactly what Graeme would have wanted.
I found Deerton by chance and when I went there I immediately knew it was the place. Someone said to me, ‘you will know when you find the right place.’ It felt so right when I was there and it ticked all the boxes that Graeme wanted.
Quiet, peaceful and tranquil, an ideal place for my teenage son to visit his father.M.L July 2010
I found Deerton on the internet and telephoned them. They were kindness itself: nothing was too much trouble.F O'N Nov 12
Being part of so many families planting their trees and remembering loved ones was very humbling and comforting. I think in time I will come to look back on Tree Planting Day as a very significant and important moment in the long healing process.R. Ashwell
A wonderful place - just perfect for what my Mum wanted and they handled everything with such care and respect... Absolutely perfectSusanne Fordham
We held the funeral and celebration of life for our friend at Riverview. Sian was so helpful as were all the other team members. Nothing was too much trouble. This made a difficult time so much the better.Betsy Too
I would highly recommend Kent Natural Burials - so much so I am booking my place.Betsy Too
