Natural Earth Burials at Rest Lawn

YOU CAN HAVE A NATURAL BURIAL AT REST LAWN IN ANY GARDEN, ANY GRAVE - NO VAULTS OR EMBALMING REQUIRED...

Over a century ago, Rest Lawn's very first graves - back when it was the old Cox Butte Cemetery or during its stint under the Odd Fellows and Masons - were natural; no vaults, mason-made markers, and simple wooden coffins were the norm. Inspired by the natural burial movement spreading throughout existing cemeteries in the UK and the US, Rest Lawn is working with the Natural Burial Company to recreate that pioneer tradition once more, but with a modern twist. 

A natural burial returns the body directly to the earth, unembalmed, and in a biodegradable coffin or shroud. Vaults or grave-liners are not required if a natural biodegradable container is used.

We now have the Fern Forest (opening soon), dedicated to natural cremation burials, while natural burials - both cremated and full body remains - are encouraged in ALL parts of the cemetery. 

And if you're just buying a plot today, natural burials are all that we allow at this time, and going forward.
