Sun Rising is run by Nature Reserve Burial Grounds Ltd (NRBG). The company was started in 2005 upon very strong social and environmental ethical principles. We use Eco Web Hosting for the websites, a solar-powered web server. We use the Co-op Bank, the only High Street bank with a clear ethical policy, and Triodos Bank. We use Naturesave Insurance, which won the Queens Award For Enterprise in the Sustainable Development category (2011). We use the Phone Co-op. Our regular gravedigging service is provided by John Shelton Burial Services, based in Princethorpe, a family business established in 1986.

Wherever possible we work with sole traders, craftsmen and family businesses. Locally, we have worked with Brian Ascott for significant infrastructure, tracks, gates, fencing and the pond; Jon Williams for the cabin; Chris Price and Michael Gibbs for grassland and other farming needs; ProGardens for end of season mowing.

Long term security is a key part of what we do at Sun Rising: have a look through the menu on the right, and the pages of The Friends of Sun Rising Natural Burial Ground and Nature Reserve, the registered charity that runs in parallel with NRBG.
