Funeral Planning

Green funerals

Green funerals are an environmentally friendly service which considers and minimises environmental factors associated with the funeral. For example, basic wooden or wicker coffins which are sustainably sourced are favoured over traditional coffins. Environmentally friendly transport, such as a horse and cart may be favoured to avoid unnecessary carbon emissions.

As well as having less impact on the environment, eco-funerals often cost less than traditional funerals. This is due to a range of factors such as low cost biodegradable coffins, the absence of funeral cars and an unmarked woodland burial location which may cost less than a cemetery burial plot. 

Cremation

Although green funerals are becoming the more popular funeral choice, burials and cremations are sometimes the preferred option. Cremation services are available to suit people with both religious and non-religious beliefs and we will ensure to tailor the funeral service to meet your beliefs. Cremation services allow your loved ones to decide whether they wish to attend the service or not and provide support when arranging these details. Once the service is complete, our Funeral Directors will ensure that the ashes are returned to you safely. 

Burial

Burial services have been the favoured funeral service for many years. With the introduction of more eco-friendly services such as green funerals becoming more popular, we are seeing less people choose this type of service. However, if a burial is your preferred choice, our Funeral Directors can ensure a helpful support and advice service to help you organise every last detail. Whether you are arranging a funeral plan for yourself or a loved one, our Funeral Directors are here to support you.
