Woodland, Green and Natural Burials
Concerns for the environment and variances in belief have seen a huge rise in the numbers of people who chose to opt for a more environmentally friendly option for their burial.
" I was thinking of having a green funeral but am not sure where to begin"
Woodland and green sites are increasing in numbers throughout the country. These sites are alternatives to the traditional cemeteries, with all their emphasis being on blending in with the environment and nature, and is an ideal choice for those wanting a more natural and beautiful place to hold a funeral for a departed loved one.
Most of the natural option burial grounds are to be found outside of London and very few have facilities to hold the service in the same grounds. Therefore many of the same requirements that would be used for a traditional burial will apply.
Costs – Natural options vs. Traditional
Unlike traditional cemeteries there are no fluctuating costs with the burial plot for natural choices and the final resting places are for eternity, where as the majority of the cemeteries are on a renewable lease option. Biodegradable materials will need to be used for all parts to be buried, and clothing to be worn by the deceased must also be biodegradable, made of natural materials such as cotton, linen and wool; this will also apply to Shrouds
Woodland burial sites are much less expensive burial options than traditional cemeteries, with all inclusive fees for the sites coming in regularly at under £1000.
