The woodland at Hundy Mundy will remain as a natural environment, the way you see it now. In keeping with the wild and natural character of the burial ground, memorial stones need to be rustic in shape and laid flat to the ground. Local field, beach or river stones are ideal - one that you have sourced and collected yourself or which your craftsman has identified on which the name and dates of the deceased are cut.
The stone should be laid flat to the ground and no larger than 45cm x 45cm. Letter cutting can be undertaken by a family member, local stonemason or memorial mason. In keeping with the natural setting, no paint should be used in the letters. The position for the stone will be measured out and flagged for you or your mason to set the stone in place.
Unlike conventional cemeteries, there will not be benches, vases of flowers or mementos which would change the special quality of the burial ground.
