"Green" Funerals

Just the thing for the environmentally-friendly deceased. The term "Green Funerals" generally refers to a meadow or woodland burial. Complimented by the use of a coffin made from biodegradable materials i.e. willow or chipboard. The green funeral option continues to grow in popularity and there are now many woodland burial sites all over the country. The environment of green burial grounds are kept as wild and as natural as possible. Memorials and headstones are generally not permitted, but often memorial trees can be planted to mark the grave.

Other aspects of an eco-funeral are the use of less vehicles - in turn use of less fuel. No embalming is usually carried out and the coffin must be biodegradable. Some Crematoria carry out a cremation at a lower price if an environmentally friendly coffin is used as there is less emissions and less energy used.

The dignity of any service is not compromised by these arrangements and indeed the simplicity of the service can add a certain something.
