Eas­ier to ar­range wood­land buri­als

The Oban Times - - News -

AR­RANGE­MENTS have been put in place to make an en­vi­ron­men­tal in­tern­ment a real op­tion in Ar­gyll.

Wood­land buri­als have be­come in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar and are less for­mal than tra­di­tional buri­als.

Main­te­nance of these sites is in keep­ing with the nat­u­ral wood­land set­ting, with the grass cut only once a year and trees be­ing planted around the graves to cre­ate a nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment over time.

There are now two ceme­ter­ies which in­clude spe­cific wood­land burial ar­eas in Ar­gyll: Pen­ny­fuir in Oban and Car­rick in Tar­bert.
