KINGSTON LAWN CEMETERY
A bushland burial is a natural form of burial or ashes placement. The landscape remains relatively undisturbed as burials are integrated into native bushland, providing a peaceful
environment for reflection.
This style of burial option has been created to enable families to plan a meaningful memorial that reflects the way they wish to remember
their loved ones.
BUSHLAND BURIAL REQUIREMENTS
Coffins in our Bushland Burial Section need to be solid, untreated and unpainted timber. To reduce the environmental impact we do not allow chipboard, fibreboard or other material that involves pulps, glues or chemicals in production. The internal coffin upholstery is unbleached calico and the handles are rope. This ensures a fully biodegradable coffin with no environmental impact.
Sentimental items can be placed in the coffin and are to be of a biodegradable material only. Fresh flowers on grave sites are permitted at the time of the burial and will be removed after a week to keep the area looking natural.
You have the option of planting a native tree or shrub on the burial site. Listed on the back of this brochure are a selection of Tasmanian native trees and shrubs.
A standard memorial plaque is to be placed on the Memorial Wall which is situated at the entrance of the bushland burials area, and a bush rock with the name engraved to be placed at the burial site.

IN THE BUSHLAND AREA
The bushland burials area is not just for burials; you can have cremated remains either scattered or buried in an area of your choice. With either option you will be provided with a bush rock with the name engraved and a plaque placed on the Memorial Wall at the entrance to the area.
You have the option of choosing the position in advance or when the time comes.
