Coffins, caskets and urns are  to be made from bio-degradable materials and embalming is to be avoided (if required a bio-degradable fluid alternative must be used such as AARDBalm).  Each grave is marked with a natural memorial such as a native English tree, bird,bat or owl boxes which made from fallen oak, also benches supplied by Respect made from fallen oak or living willow each with a personal  inscription . No formal granite headstones will be permitted.

We only carry out one burial per day with religious services typically held at local churches with a short graveside eulogy before final repose or a full graveside service carried out by family and friends – The Choice is Yours!

Green Burial offers the chance to choose to continue a ‘Cycle of Life’ – The 21st century presents a new consumer who is looking for a clean ‘Green’ Burial to accompany a conscious, low environmental impact life. Whilst we cannot all choose to live a completely Green lifestyle Green Burial offers the chance to choose to continue a ‘Cycle of Life’ in natures most natural way.

Eco burial is an exciting solution with a win,win scenario for individuals, wildlife, environmental enthusiasts, Local Authorities and Government.

Alternative Green Burial started in the early 1990s and is growing rapidly in popularity in the UK.  We have already commenced our process to alternative sustainable eco burial areas which support the values of green space preservation, carbon sequestration, habitat creation and nutrient recycling.  The parks are maturing year on year into sustainable native mixed broadleaf woodland.

Our Eco Warden and proposed friends group will manage the site so as to encourage the natural regeneration of flora and fauna and in turn support and encourage a plethora of wildlife for many generations to come.

Why should we choose?

  • Woodland Green Burial?
  • Eco Burial?
  • Natural Burial?

These are all terms now commonly used to introduce an alternative choice to traditional Victorian cemetery burials which can often be rather cold unwelcoming places.  One of the main reasons for choosing a Green Burial is your respect for nature and the lasting benefit YOUR CHOICE will give to generations to come and the loved ones left behind. An “ECO” Green Burial can cost less than traditional burials. It can be as simple as you wish with no fuss at all or you can choose a traditional church service before the burial and even a small graveside eulogy.
For family plots, unlike many councils and churches, we do not charge double or even any extra at all if the deceased lives outside of the area. This is one of the main benefits of choosing and pre booking a family plot.  You can rest assured all of the family can have the right to be buried together even along with the beloved family pets.


Client Testimonials.

May I take this opportunity to thank you and Alison for everything you have done to help us through this difficult time. We have found the perfect place for *******- everything he loved in close proximity. I have been up to Laughton several times since Friday and each time I find it comforting. I can sit on his bench and chat to him in peace and quiet.
