About Our Cemetery

The Denman Island Natural Burial Cemetery is unusual. First, it is a green cemetery. In fact, it’s the first contemporary, exclusively green cemetery in Canada. Second, it is operated by a non-profit society, whereas most cemeteries are operated by a municipality and thus are managed by government employees and supported by a local tax base. Third, it is a community cemetery, that is, it is designed to serve the needs of members of the Denman community and their families. As a result, eligibility is limited to a specific group of individuals (see Eligibility and Fees).

This section of the website is intended to help those individuals learn about the features of the Denman Island Natural Burial Cemetery and, perhaps, to choose this cemetery for their final resting place.
