The Natural Green Burial Area at St. Stephen's Cemetery offers a return to historic burial methods.

The Garden of Peace is a green burial area where:

  • The body is not embalmed
  • Bio-degradeable containers or caskets are used to allow for natural decomposition of the body
  • Concrete liners will NOT be required
  • A communal monument will be installed
  • Graves may be marked with small flat granite markers
  • The area is surrounded by natural trees such as poplars and willows and abuts a natural wetland
  • With the passing of time, greenery will be planted to enhance the natural appearance of the area.

Please contact the office for more information about this unique area.
