Woodland Burials (also known as Eco, Green or Natural Burials)

This type of funeral is rapidly growing in popularity, with many people opting for an environmentally friendly approach. The impact on the environment (carbon footprint), of their passing is reduced to near zero by adopting the use of recyclable materials in all aspects of the funeral, and the planting of trees in memory of the deceased, for instance. Memorial furniture is frequently wood from sustainable and replenished sources. Coffins are generally required to be of natural wood, wicker/reed, cardboard or cloth shrouds. The sites are managed in such a way as to provide peaceful havens for new life from old. Wildlife is encouraged by the use of environmentally friendly techniques to care for the site (nest boxes in trees, no chemicals etc).

Vernon Rush Funerals can arrange Woodland Burials for you, and have relationships with a number of sites in Devon and Somerset in particular. We would be pleased to arrange this type of funeral if desired.
