Burials, the Natural Way

The Natural Burial Area at St. Stephen's Cemetery offers a return to historic burial methods.

  • No vaults or liners are required, a burial may take place in a bio-degradable container instead of a traditional casket.
  • Instead of an individual headstone, families are encouraged to mark the burial with a bronze plaque displayed on a central monument.
  • Wild flowers and natural plants will be allow to flourish and reclaim this unique area.

The cemetery will provide minimal grooming and cutting of the grass in this area.
