Green funerals and natural burials growing in popularity
An increasing number of people are considering the environment during their everyday lives and, in death, there are opportunities to continue these sentiments with an eco, natural or green funeral.
At Tester & Jones, we pride ourselves on being flexible and ready to respond to individual requests which honour a loved one. We have, for instance, arranged an increasing number of natural burials.
Natural burial – sometimes referred to as a ‘green burial’ or ‘woodland burial’ - describes the burial of the deceased where the burial area creates a habitat for wildlife or preserves existing habitats, such as woodland, species rich meadows or orchards. The idea is to return a body to the earth in as natural a way as possible.
