Woodland Burials

Woodland burials are a perfect way to lay to rest someone who has a particular affinity with nature, or someone who has expressed a desire for an eco-friendly burial. Woodland burials take place in designated burial grounds, and the deceased is laid to rest in their own burial plot, surrounded by beautiful greenery. 

A natural burial plot isn’t marked with a headstone, but it can be marked in other ways – flowers can be planted, for example, allowing you to easily find and visit your loved one’s space whenever you like.

FAQs & Advice

Arranging a funeral can be complex and daunting, whether it’s for a loved one or for yourself. We’ve compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions here:

When a person dies, it is naturally a very upsetting and emotional time. Unfortunately, during this time important decisions need to be made regarding the funeral arrangements. From the first call to us, we will take the burden of legalities and formalities away giving you the time to concentrate on the important and personal choices.
If the death is expected and happens at home a doctor or medical professional must formally confirm this before we are able to take the person into our care. If the person’s doctor’s surgery is open, contact them asking for a doctor to attend. If the surgery is closed phone 111 where you will be transferred to your local out of hours service. Once the death has been confirmed, we can come when you are ready. If the death occurs at a care or nursing home the staff will take care of this for you.
If the death is sudden or unexpected, the coroner may become involved - this is a formality and nothing to worry about. The police will usually attend on their behalf, ask relevant questions, ensure that everything is in order and complete all of the necessary documentation. Once the death has been confirmed, the police will arrange for the person who has died to be taken to the nearest main hospital where investigations into the cause of death will be carried out. When you feel ready, you can contact us. We will then liaise with the coroner and hospital and bring the person into our care when given clearance. If you feel ready, funeral arrangements may be made before this happens.
