Burials

Tuxford Cemetery

Green Burials

In March 2011 Tuxford Town Council decided to designate part of Tuxford cemetery as a 'natural' or 'green' burial ground. Green burial grounds provide a final resting place for those who want a more environmentally-friendly burial.
For example, coffins are made of biodegradable materials, such as wicker or wood, and not materials such as plastics or metals.
Also, there is no gravestone made out of granite, marble or slate. Instead, graves are marked with a tree and a small plaque will be placed on a memorial board just outside of the burial ground which displays the deceased's name and location.
