Greener funerals have become more popular in the modern age. We are happy to discuss the options with you, or facilitate the wishes of your loved one to ensure they have the funeral they would have wanted. Below are some examples of green funeral alternatives currently available; these options tend to have some restrictions that must be discussed with ourselves prior to making final arrangements for the funeral to take place.
There are similar restrictions on natural burial in terms of the coffin and attire, but this varies based on the site chosen. Typically, any wicker style coffin or woollen coffin would be sufficient.

Future Green Funerals
Future options are currently uncertain, but some countries now offer Resomation. Resomation, or water cremation, takes on a similar form to conventional cremation but uses water combined with an alkaline solution.
Whilst this option is not yet available in the UK, we believe in developing sustainable solutions and will continue to search for current and future alternatives.
