The Burial Ground Botanical Companion


This booklet will help you to get started in learning about the grassland plants; how to record species and what can be done with the information collected. You don’t need to be able to identify every plant, simply have a go at as many of the stages in the Companion as you can.
The Companion is available in hard copy here and as a download from this link. You may like to have one hard copy and then download the Summary Sheet, Species List and Chart of Indicator Species in order to write on a set of these each time you do a burial ground survey. The Companion is also available in Welsh, download it here.
This booklet has references to the sheets from our Churchyard and Burial Ground Action Pack which can be found on our website.  These sheets are invaluable tools for managing burial grounds.
