Green, Eco-Friendly Funerals from £3,895 inclusive

Not everyone wants a traditional funeral. An increasing number of families and individuals are concerned about the environment and wish to have an ecologically friendly service…and it may surprise you to find out that it can be less expensive to have a woodland burial than many people think. There are a couple of excellent green burial sites in our area and we can give you advice about these as well as offering a range of beautiful eco-coffins. Green funerals are often very lovely events conducted in natural and beautiful surroundings.

Natural, Eco-Friendly Coffins

All of our eco-coffins are made with sustainable natural materials or recycled cardboard. Natural coffins are very beautiful and have a completely different effect on many people than traditional coffins. With their gentler and softer aesthetic some people report a greater sense of peace in saying goodbye to their loved one.

Each coffin is fully lined with natural fibres and comes complete with a soft shroud and all fittings.

Bamboo

The least expensive of the natural fibres, Bamboo coffins offer a simple, light design in both traditional and rounded styles.

Banana

Available in both Coffin and Casket styles, Banana fibre is a slightly heavier material than Bamboo offering a stronger weave and greater tonal variation. There are also various colour options for the Caskets.

Cardboard

Offered in Manila, White and Woodgrain our cardboard coffins present a simple elegance with the least impact on the environment. Cardboard coffins are very suitable for burial but are also an excellent choice for cremation as they create far less CO2 than any other coffin material.

English Willow      

All natural coffins are relatively light but Willow is a little heavier and structurally stronger than Bamboo and Banana coffins. Our English Willow coffins are available in white, green and brown trim with colour options available.

English Willow Trad White

European Willow

European Willow, whilst offering less tonal variation than English Willow, does present a very polished and elegant finish. Our European Willow line also offers the unique “Pod” design which we feel is even more impressive in real life than it appears in the pictures.

Pandanus

The Pandanus coffins present a two tonal, twisted weave that leans towards a sense of hemp or rope. For some this creates a slightly more nautical feel to the coffins. Up close these are very beautiful.

Pandanus Round
£450
Pandanus Traditional
£450
Pine

A simple and uncomplicated design this coffin is arguably the best option if you wish the coffin to be carried down, at arms length, rather than on the shoulders.

To all at Penrose Funerals,

Please accept my thanks for the sensitive and professional way in which you carried out my mother’s funeral arrangements. My brothers and I were also extremely happy with the way everything went on the day.

Thank you

Simon Jarvis - April 2020

To Jeremy, Nathan and everyone involved with our father’s funeral. We would like to express our deepest thanks for all you did after the loss of our dear husband/father. Your kindness and professionalism were incredible. The fact that you all wore ‘silly socks’ without prompting blew us away! You are all very special people, Thank you again

Kay, Matt and Sam - November 2016

I really can’t thank the team at Penrose enough for the beautiful funeral they managed for my dear husband Fred. Especially Nathan for helping us plan the day with such care and dignity.

I met Nathan’s dad Jeremy for the first time when he arrived with the cortege to collect us from home. Immediately I felt totally at ease with this charming charismatic gentleman leading the service perfectly from begining to end.

Thank you so much

from Georgie

Georgina Bateman - February 2020

Nathan, Jeremy and the Penrose Team,

​My wife, myself and our family would like to say a heartfelt thank you for the wonderful service we received from Penrose. We could not have asked for kinder or more helpful people and certainly everyone who attended David’s funeral gave high praise indeed to the whole event.​

I cannot recommend Penrose highly enough on the amazing service provided and wish you all the very best in the future.

Steve and Brenda Bester - December 2017
