In 2009 The Green Graveyard Company was formed with a view to opening Natural or Woodland Burial Grounds in Ireland.


In November 2010 we opened Ireland's first and only Natural Burial Ground, Woodbrook Natural Burial Ground, in Killane Co. Wexford. We hope to open more Natural / Woodland burial grounds in the coming years.

What we offer

We offer a tranquil burial ground where you can come and sit, surrounded by nature, and remember their loved ones.

We offer the opportunity to be buried the way you want.

We cater for all religions and those without religion.

You get the choice to use your final resting space as a aid to wildlife conservation.

Those left behind can enjoy the newly created wildlife sanctuary where life goes on and memories linger.
