A new day is dawning over your local cemetery - and it’s shedding a new light on some old perceptions. Using cemeteries in non-traditional ways is a growing trend that’s pushing the boundaries of how these trusted institutions can further serve us along the road of life.

All those pretty gardens, mature trees and ponds make a perfect setting for celebrating and commemorating happy times too!
