We are proud to offer green funerals in Swindon, Wroughton and across our local area. Eco-friendly funerals have become very popular in recent years. Many people are preferring a greener alternative to a traditional burial or cremation. If a traditional funeral worries you or you would like to maintain your environmentally friendly ethos, then we are here to help with any arrangements.
A natural burial is a burial that does not disturb the environment. Unlike traditional burials, they allow the land to return to its natural state. This keeps the process as natural and carbon neutral as possible. We have all the required permissions and certificates we need from the local authority, so our services will take place in a local woodland area. The land cannot be altered, so the plot cannot be marked with a headstone and tending to a natural plot is not allowed.
These services allow friends and family to see their loved one in a natural setting, which can make visits less distressing and more fulfilling. Traditions are beginning to change, as green funerals are popular with both religious and non-religious people.
We can also provide you with a choice of eco-friendly coffins. Our range features beautiful wicker, willow and bamboo designs. It is a requirement that the coffin must be made from sustainable materials.
There are a number of rules to comply with. We cannot embalm in this service. It is also very important that all clothing and items within the coffin are biodegradable, so nothing disturbs the natural landscape.
