Private burial site

    I am not sure if this is a planning question or where I should ask, or if it is even feasible.

    We have a few acres of former hillside grazing land which we have planning permission to build on.

    There will be approx 4 acres behind the house.

    I plan to plant a bit of an orchard on some of this, most of it will be left as hillside grazing for sheep etc.

    I am not interested in being buried at a grave, leaving a remote place that people feel they have to visit when i am gone.

    I would prefer to be somewhere I love and if people visit it would be somewhere nice.

    We have areas with beautiful scenic views in private settings, are there restrictions on ashes being buried / scattered or a body

    buried (legally) in private land?
