Home burial

In the event that you wish to be buried at home, there is no legal reason from an Environmental Health or Planning Department perspective to prevent this.  You will need to outline this wish in your Will or some other legal document which specifies your requirements.  The arrangements should be made in advance with an undertaker who is sympathetic to this type of burial and discussed with your executors.  There are other factors that you will also need to consider before you go ahead with a home burial.
