Its all worm bait in the end, whether its dragon poop, insect poop or even the shell of who we once were.

Getting back to the OP though, I'm sure the idea of burial in a wicker basket in the woods has become (not widely) an accepted form of burial now here in the UK. I have heard of this here.

Hell you need a permit or special permission to do anything now a days. If you have family or friend take your carcass into the woods and bury it they could whine up in jail or with heavy fines or booth.  Death tax , burial tax , transportation tax and a tax on the taxes.

Ah, my bad there OG. I should have included that this can only be carried out in certain places; you can't just choose a spot and say "there, dump me under that Beech tree."  :-p

My husband and I will just be creamated. I have never given thought on what would happen if my daughter went before me. I dont know that I would have the heart to creamate her. My brother and I have discussed that he would like a funeral pyre with gold coins placed on his eyes. Due to permits and all that I advised him that I can't promise the funeral pyre or that I will be able to afford gold coins but if he purchases the gold coins and leaves instructions in his will I will ensure that they are placed on his eyes before creamation. I told him if he doesnt buy them he will likely get the gold foil covered chocolate coins.

Do not think you will get a permit for a pyre . Open air cremation are limited to one place in Colorado so far . As years go buy that could change but with people closing out a lot of the wilderness areas it will likely not be around for long .

I know there are still a few places in the U.S.--mainly small towns--where one can still be buried upon their own property. But alas, those places are far and few in between.

I believe there are funeral directors here that have access to wooded areas where these burials can be carried out. Its very eco friendly, and gives back to the earth.

Surprise that no one has started to exhume cemeteries so they can build houses on the property .

I want my ashes to be scattered across the land my family owns. I want to be able to connect with nature one last time in that sense and feel my physical being is truly a part of my home. I miss it their, I'm in another state right now, but I hope that My body can remain where my heart has been all these years.

Sound like a good plan , does your family still own the property?.

Up until now, I've said that I just want my body to be cremated and then scatter some place I haven't decided of yet. No one can wear black to mourn me, only bright colors to celebrate the life I had. And they can all go out to a bar or something rather than waste money on a funeral. But I came across this a few weeks ago, and I would love something like this.

"Bios is a mortuary urn made from biodegradable materials: coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose. Inside contains a seed of a tree that can be replaced by another seed, bud or plant suitable to the place chosen. When the urn is planted the seed germinates and begins to grow.
Bios Urn burial ritual transforms into a regeneration and a return to life through nature. The cemeteries become forests."
