An Eco- Friendly Funeral

Due to an increased level of environmental pollution and its impact, we now offer eco-friendly funeral arrangements, mindful of how we can reduce the carbon footprint caused by the different ways we impact the environment.

A green funeral means we do our best to reduce distance by performing the ceremony at a graveside that is close to the funeral home. Our eco-friendly coffins are made of natural materials. Compared to burial which takes much longer to decompose, cremation is an environmentally friendly method of performing final rites, but it also consumes natural resources. Even though, it is a personal choice for those who are more concerned about the environment to follow these ethical options.

Please ensure you look at other funeral options that we offer. Under the circumstances, you may not be aware of the arrangements that are needed to be made. But we are here to help. You can get in touch with us 24 hours a day, so please call us at anytime.

The family may wish to have a special send off with something a little different to reflect the life and personality of the deceased. i.e. Motorbike & Sidecar, VW Camper, Rolls Royce, Favourite Truck, Agricultural Transport. Let us know your wishes and we will do our best to arrange your requirements for the day.
