Natural funerals are rapidly growing in popularity, and are perfect for those who are environmentally conscious and want an accredited carbon neutral funeral.
Everything from the information guide, to the coffin, and the service that will be performed have been assessed for their carbon footprint. You can also add special requests to your plan, to reflect your life, your interests, and your individual personality, such as the reading of a particular poem during the service, a special piece of music to be played, or a favourite hymn to be sung.
Once you have made your choice, you can buy over the phone by calling a member of the friendly and experienced team on 0800 652 0548*.
This plan includes a high quality bamboo, fully-lined and fitted coffin. It provides one limousine, as well as the option to further personalise the plan with any special requests you may have.
The Forest plan is the most prestigious plan for lovers of nature, and includes a sustainably-sourced willow coffin, two limousines, as well as the option to personalise the plan with any special requests you may have.
