Planning woodland burials or green funerals

Many people are choosing a woodland funeral. They are seen as an environmentally friendly alternative funeral that’s kinder to our planet.

Why choose a natural burial ground?

A return to nature, woodland, and green funerals take place at a natural burial ground. A woodland burial is also known as a green funeral or eco funeral. People who have planned woodland burials are often concerned about the environmental impact a cremation or traditional burial may have. This type of funeral can also be cost-effective, depending on the choices made at the time of planning.

What happens at a woodland or green funeral?

The beautiful woodland funeral and natural burial grounds that we recommend are similar to natural parks and woodland However, sites can differ and we can advise you on this.  Metal caskets are not permitted and the preference is for natural, biodegradable burial containers.  Willow coffins, simple wooden caskets, linen shrouds, or environmentally friendly coffins such as the LifeArt range can be used. Memorials such as trees can be planted as opposed to using grave markers and headstones. This makes the whole process a much more natural form of burial. The natural burial grounds we recommend offer the opportunity for you to arrange a very special funeral service.
