24 Hour Funeral Helpline: 01206 760049
The concept of a woodland or 'green' burial is growing in popularity, and we are pleased to offer this alternative at our Oakfield Wood natural burial grounds at Wrabness in Essex and Culford in Suffolk. For each burial, a tree is planted and an oak name plaque placed. The Wildlife Trust ensures that the woodland will be sustained and regenerated in perpetuity, creating a proper and respectful resting place for people of any religion or secular belief in a natural woodland setting. Other woodland burial grounds are located at West Mersea, Maldon and Saxmundham.
It is reported that green funerals currently account for just 6.5% of the market. However, 64% of the British public like the idea of a green funeral. The growing interest in environmental issues has encouraged the development of a range of alternative elements in a funeral arrangement, including both eco-coffins (click here for more info) and natural woodland burial sites. A green funeral shows respect and responsibility to environmental issues and offers future generations a protected piece of woodland for many years to come.
