Full Natural Burial

Whilst we work with all local funeral directors, we understand that not everyone wishes to use the services of a traditional funeral director.  The desire for more personal and family led goodbyes is growing, and we are finding that there is a great demand for personalised family services. 

Therefore, we can provide simple, personalised funeral services to meet family needs.  Our services do not include many aspects of a traditional funeral, such as paying your respects at a chapel of rest or providing limousines.  If a traditional funeral service meets your requirements, we will gladly provide you with a list of funeral directors in your area.

However, for those who require a simple, personalised goodbye, without a traditional funeral director, we pride ourselves on being able to arrange and conduct extremely personal funeral services, whilst endeavouring to provide competitive pricing to help support families as well as caring for the environment.

The Traditional Natural Burial Service:

  • Making all arrangements and administration, including all local meetings, visits as required, also support before, during and after the burial service.
  • Removal of the person who has died within office hours from a hospital within 20 miles of any of our burial grounds (additional mileage charges may apply if the person died outside of this area – an estimate of costs will always be provided).
  • Care of the person who has died in hygienic conditions (for up to three weeks) until the day of the funeral service, including dressing in own environmentally friendly clothing if required.
  • Transport by estate car or private ambulance to the natural burial ground.
  • A graveside service at the natural burial ground. Provision of a Bluetooth Speaker for playing music before, during and after the service if required. 
  • Help and support of our team throughout the arrangements and on the day of the service. 
  • Complimentary simple refreshments are provided – tea, coffee, squash, and biscuits.  This is subject to Covid or other restrictions in place at the time of the service.

The cost of the above services is £1,360
