Woodland Burial

Many people

are surprised to learn that there are alternatives to burial in a cemetery or churchyard. A popular, legal alternative to the more traditional final resting places is a woodland burial.

In a woodland burial, your loved one is buried in a piece of privately owned land on which trees will be planted. The trees will be left to grow in perpetuity, providing an environmentally beneficial resource which offers a haven for wildlife.

Coffins need to be fully recyclable (so are normally made from softwood or cardboard) and the details of your loved one will be displayed on a biodegradable, wooden plaque.

Flowers are normally removed a week or so after burial – the intention of a woodland burial is that, over time, no external markers of the final resting place will remain.

If you want a more environmentally friendly burial that benefits the planet, a woodland burial could be right for you.
