Green Funerals

Today, more and more people are striving to minimise their impact on the planet, and are therefore considering environmentally-friendly options for funerals. The number of natural burial sites across the country reflects that, and we are very happy to offer our guidance and support to maximising families ‘green’ credentials when helping to arrange a funeral.


About Green Funerals

A natural woodland Burial is the ideal choice for those seeking somewhere more natural and beautiful to hold a funeral and remember a loved one. Set within unspoilt countryside, a woodland burial ground provides a natural alternative to a traditional cemetery or graveyard. A natural Burial provides a very positive way to put life back into the environment following a death.

Instead of a traditional headstone, graves are marked by the planting of a memorial tree or the placing of a simple bronze plaque. There is a focus on preserving the natural beauty of the woodland environment and encouraging native wildlife and flowers, ensuring that the landscape of a woodland burial ground can be treasured by future generations.

There are several suitable natural burial sites located across the county and beyond, and we can liaise on your behalf to find the perfect final resting place for your loved one. They range from nature reserves, to flower meadows, to woodlands and all encourage the idea of returning to be at one with the earth with their commitment to biodegradable materials used in the coffins and shrouds.
