The article focuses on green burial sites in Great Britain, where the choice of funeral involves disposal of the deceased on green sites where there is an expectation of sound ecological land management now and in the future. A burial ground can be created on as little as half an acre, although some sites are 25 acres or more. One of the remits of the Association of Natural Burial Grounds (ANBG) is to assist people in the process of establishing sites. It also offers information on initial outlay and access issues.
