Woodland burials offer an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional funerals at crematoria and cemeteries.

Woodland burials are becoming popular and your funeral director will be able to tell you the location of your nearest woodland burial site. A range of eco-friendly, biodegradable coffins are available for this type of service.

The environment of woodland burial grounds is kept as natural as possible. Memorials and headstones are not usually permitted but often trees can be planted to mark the grave.

Your funeral director will be able to provide further information on woodland burials and the range of eco-coffins available.
