Protecting the Environment

We are concerned for the environment and for leaving a natural legacy. That’s why we are committed to encouraging nature and developing our natural resources for a better future.

Burial is more environmentally friendly than cremation. But we wish to do even more to protect our planet.

Therefore, we are committed to the following:

Environmentally Friendly coffins and shrouds.

No embalming.

All graves are dug by hand

Natural memorials, trees, bird boxes and insect homes to encourage nature.

Flowers without oasis, cellophane or plastic containers.

Within time our burial grounds will be returned to nature. Ensuring beautiful woodlands and meadows for future generations to enjoy.
