Natural burial graves are available largely in the historic areas of the Cemetery and are intended for unembalmed bodies buried in biodegradable containers. Natural burial graves accommodate one individual each, though Mount Auburn does allow one additional cremated remains burial in any natural burial grave. Many natural burial graves are unmarked, while others include rights of the inscription on a shared memorial tablet or rights to erect a private marker. Memorial tree plaques are a popular option to commemorate those buried in unmarked graves. Prices begin at $9,000.
