Until this morning I was blissfully unaware of the natural burial movement.
Now thanks to the Greens’ Caroline Le Couteur calling for the proposed Southern Cemetery to be a “natural cemetery” I have learned something new.
As far as I can tell the idea of a natural cemetery is to not have any markers (one assumes someone has to map out where clear ground can be found) and for the bodies to rot as fast as possible.
Perhaps it’s time to adopt the Zoroastrian practice of feeding the vultures?
Mr Stanhope has put out what looked like an angry reply, but until his website is back up we won’t be able to know what it is.
