Eco-friendly green funeral
Green, or natural burial is a way of caring for the dead with minimal environmental impact that aids in the conservation of natural resources, reduction of carbon emissions, protection of worker health, and the restoration and/or preservation of habitat. Green burial necessitates the use of non-toxic and biodegradable materials, such as caskets, shrouds, and urns.
Eco-friendly green funerals include being buried in cardboard coffins or coffins made out of natural materials like willow. Natural burials are increasingly taking place in secluded woodlands, and some people are choosing to plant trees in place of a headstone.
A woodland burial provides a peaceful eco-friendly resting place for a loved one and it is often possible to have a tree planted on or near the grave. A woodland burial also removes the need for maintenance of the grave site.
And an eco-friendly green funeral is no more expensive than a traditional funeral. Those interested in arranging an eco-friendly green funeral often want to plan it in advance so we offer a free planning service.
One of our funeral arrangers will be pleased to discuss the options and help you plan a green funeral. This can be done at one of our offices or we can make an appointment to visit you in the comfort of your own home. The ceremony can be tailored to create something unique that reflects your loved-one, so as to ensure a fitting and sincere way of remembering them.
You will be given the opportunity to personalise a funeral to reflect your loved one's interests or personality. Our funeral arranger will make you aware of the procedures and legal requirements.
We offer a high quality service, caring staff and compassion for those who need it. If a death occurs please contact us at any time, 24 hours a day – call 0800 174220.
