The funeral for Nick Busch will be a humanist celebration of his life. Please pass this information on to anyone who you feel might want to know.
Nick Busch’s funeral will be a humanist celebration of his life. It will take place at 14:30 on Tuesday, 6th August at the Arbory Trust’s woodland burial site, Barton Glebe, near (to the west of) Cambridge.
Many of you will be coming a long way and refreshments will be served at The Lodge there from 14:00.
Nick always said he wanted to be buried in a cardboard box and anyone can sign it with messages, photos or drawings if they wish. These can be sent to the Busch homestead (address below) or, if there’s time, done on the day.
The Busch family will be taking a flower from their garden to lay on the coffin. Although anyone is free to leave something on the coffin in its burial plot, too, it will need to be bio-degradable and without packaging.
Dress is utterly optional and whatever you want – jeans, for example, would be fine – although bear in mind that it will be muddy if it has been raining.
Nick had wonderful treatment from Addenbrooke Hospital in recent years and the family would be very pleased if you felt it appropriate to help the hospital continue its work at such a high level by making a donation to it via the Addenbrooke Charitable Trust (ACT). There will be an ACT donation box at Barton Glebe or you can do so through ACT’s website:
