Green burials

Green burial sites are environmentally-friendly places of rest that are situated in a natural environment, such as a wood or a meadow.

Certain stipulations are in place in order to keep the surroundings natural. For example, a biodegradable coffin must be used and gravestones are not permitted, however, graves can be marked with a tree or by wild flowers.

You can book a civil funeral appointment with one our celebrants by calling 01522 552513 or by emailing
