The options for burial will often depend very much on locality.

Cemeteries available to the general public are often administered by the local authority and, sometimes, by national companies, so it’s likely there’ll be a significant cost involved.

Some churchyards still have burial spaces, but these are usually restricted to parishioners or attendees at that place of worship.

There are also many more options beyond traditional burial than ever before including woodland burial, also known as green or natural burial.

This is an option that ensures minimal impact to the environment and usually takes place in natural grounds or designated woodland sites.

There are a number of private greenfield/woodland burial grounds in Shropshire and Montgomeryshire. Options vary, as do costs.
