Cemeteries and crematoria
Allerton Cemetery is Grade II listed. In addition to traditional burial plots it has an environmentally friendly alternative - a natural woodland burial area with mature trees and a range of natural plants and grasses. Graves are excavated to accommodate one full earth burial, so as not to damage tree roots. An adjacent grave may be purchased in reserve where family members wish to be buried together. Burials in this area can only take place in biodegradable coffins. Instead of the traditional headstones, which aren't allowed in this area, families choose an inscription for the grave marker.
