Woodland Burial

Woodland Burials

Woodland burial offers a natural form of burial and provides important environmental benefits as well as giving a true sense of creating life from death. In recognition of public concern for environmental matters we are now able to offer this alternative to traditional practices of burial and cremation.

This section of the website briefly explains the principles and practices of Woodland Burial, however, if you require further details or assistance please do not hesitate to contact:
