Local Natural Burial Ground

The Town of Rhinebeck Cemetery now offers interment in its newly designated natural burial 
ground.  Nestled back from historic Mill Road and adjacent to the Grasmere Section of the 
cemetery.  The natural burial ground is set in a young hardwood forest on land that once served 
as pasture to the Grasmere Estate.

Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve, in Newfield, is the only other location in New York that offers this ecologically sound burial options.
