Woodland Burials

We are all concerned about the environment today. With this in mind some cemeteries have specially set aside areas for woodland burials, also known as environmentally-friendly or green funerals.

 

This part of the cemetery is designed to be a natural woodland area which will not be laid out in a formal manner with graves marked by headstones. The area will be allowed to grow as naturally as possible.

 

Only biodegradable coffins are permitted in the woodland sections. We are happy to advise on all aspects of choosing a Woodland Burial. As well as offering a variety of traditional coffins we can provide a range including Bamboo, Wicker and Pandanus coffins which are environmentally friendly, and are also Fair Trade certified.

 

We have also sought, and received, assurances from our suppliers that the hardwood used in our oak veneer and solid oak coffins comes from a properly managed forestry source.
