Natural Burials offer the community a unique and sustainable final resting place with minimal disturbance to the natural bushland environment. This unique pocket of bushland will be progressively filled with natural plant species. With a natural burial, the body is returned to nature in a biodegradable coffin and materials made from natural fibres. The Metropolitan Cemeteries Board has established a natural burial area at Fremantle Cemetery, located within an elevated grove that overlooks the cemetery’s splendid bush land gully.
