Easily Honor Your Loved One’s Wishes For A Natural Burial That Provides Peace For All.
Life is precious. Respecting final wishes bestows honor on the deceased and assists with closure for the family. Green burials offer a beautiful reconstitution to the earth in the age-old tradition of ashes to ashes and dust to dust. At Duck Run Natural Cemetery, our 100% natural cemetery is a pristine environment that’s Green Burial Council certified.
Coordinate Natural Burials Through The Funeral Home Of Your Choice.
To meet federal and state-level funeral regulations, the funeral home of your choice will work directly with Duck Run Natural Cemetery to coordinate the paperwork, ceremony, and burial. Our Committal Shelter serves as an on-site accessible ceremonial structure that blends the natural surroundings with the strength of stone. Choose from local and regional funeral homes to assist in ceremonial and end-of-life arrangements. You can arrange for your plot at Duck Run Natural Cemetery for both immediate arrangements or, if you are interested in planning ahead, pre-arrangements. We provide grave maintenance on all our sites to preserve the integrity of the cemetery for generations to come.
Our Cemetery Lots And Carefully Maintained Scattering Gardens Allow For Quiet Dignity.
At Duck Run Natural Cemetery, our lots are larger than traditional lots with less volume per acre to accommodate walking trails. All lots include perpetual rights to interment. We offer traditional lots for eternal designated burial space. The first cemetery in Virginia to offer renewable lots, Duck Run Natural Cemetery has a section of 75-year renewable lots for those interested in the most sustainable green burial solution. For cremation, we maintain beautiful scattering gardens and green burial lots for cremains.
Fieldstone Grave Markers Add A Natural, Personal Touch.
Our memorial grave markers complement the natural aesthetic that abounds at Duck Run Natural Cemetery. We offer traditional fieldstone grave markers that lie flush to the ground, signifying the final resting place of you or your loved one. You may also prefer to commemorate a deceased loved one with a stone placed in our memorial walkway or by purchasing a Virginia native plant to contribute to the master cemetery plan.
