Green, Eco-Friendly Funerals from £4,398 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

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.

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
£600
Pandanus Traditional
£600
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.
