Woodland Burials

The concept of a woodland or ‘green’ burial is growing in popularity, and we are pleased to offer this alternative at a variety of natural burial grounds across the region.

“Regret not me beneath the sunny tree; I lie uncaring, slumbering peacefully”  Thomas Hardy

It is reported that green or natural burials 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 and natural woodland burial sites.

A green burial

A green burial shows respect and responsibility for the environment, and offers future generations a protected piece of woodland for many years to come.

For each burial, a tree is planted and an oak name plaque is placed. The woodland will be sustained and regenerated in perpetuity, creating a proper and respectful resting place in a natural woodland setting for people of any religion or secular belief.
