Local Natural Burial Grounds
Cardiff & The Vale
Situated on the western edge of Cardiff at the top of the Tumble above Culverhouse Cross, the Cardiff & The Vale Natural Burial Ground has superb views across Cardiff towards St. Fagans, Castell Coch, Caerphilly Mountain and The Garth. This really is a special place to visit, spend time and contemplate; close to the city but away from it all. More Information »
Usk Castle Chase
The meadow at Usk Castle Chase has something special about it. It's not just a special setting with scenic views of beautiful countryside, it is itself an important and historic part of the landscape. Set in 14 acres of open meadow in the heart of Monmouthshire and surrounded on three sides by mature woodland, Usk Castle Chase is a natural amphitheatre – the contours and the woodland forming the arena and the scenic views provide the theatre.

There is a woodland section within Thornhill Cemetery for those people who would like a more natural setting for their final resting place but still wish to retain the convenience of a local cemetery.
