Natural Burials

South Island cemetery update


We’ve had a large number of inquiries from the south island recently about local natural cemeteries. You are now well served.

The natural cemetery we have certified is in Blenheim. This is large and attractively sited.

The cemeteries following most of our protocols, but small and/or without natural bush cover are in Dunedin, Nelson and Motueka.

There is an uncertified cemeterty in Invercargill (only 30 plots).

We’re afraid that despite our best efforts there is no natural cemetery in Christchurch. The best we’ve achieved thanks to local efforts is a very small (15 plot) site for natural burials in Diamond Harbour.
