Trustees Approve “Natural Burials” at Maple Grove Cemetery

During their December 21, 2020 Regular Board of Granville Township Trustees meeting, the Board voted to allow Natural burials.

Below is the language added to the Maple Grove Cemetery – Rules and Regulations document for Natural burials:

Natural burials are permitted within all sections of the cemetery. A natural burial is
one where an embalming process is not utilized and interment is without a standard
casket or burial vault. A biodegradable wicker casket/pod or similar item is required
for burial so that direct handling of the human remains by cemetery personnel is
avoided.

Attached is the full set of updated rules:
