An eco friendly cemetery has been created by Brighton and Hove City Council. The site in Woodingdean overlooks the sea and the South Downs.
Only biodegradable coffins and caskets can be used and, instead of headstones, wooden memorial plaques can be added. Mourners can plant wildflowers on graves at Woodland Valley Natural Burial Ground.
Malcolm Shaw spoke to Cllr Maggie Barradell of Brighton and Hove City Council, and Andy Holter, President of the Sussex County Association of Funeral Directors.
25 graves have been damaged by vandals at Poole cemetery. They carried out the attack on Friday night. Headstones were pushed over and graves desecrated.
Council officials are currently at the site trying to repair the damage.
Police say the vandalism was reported on Saturday morning by a family member.
Officers from Kent Police are appealing for witnesses after approximately 150 brass plaques were reported to have been stolen from a cemetery in Tonbridge. The plaques, reported to be worth £80 each, were stolen on 11 May from the cemetery in Welland Road, Tonbridge.
