Green or natural woodland funeral

If you loved one had strong ecological beliefs they may have arranged a green funeral. Typical a green funeral takes place in a natural meadow or woodland burial ground. The materials of the coffin are made from biodegradable materials.

Green burial grounds are wild and natural as possible, therefore memorials and headstones are not typically permitted, however often memorial trees can be planted to mark the grave.

We are happy to help you organise and conduct the ceremony for a green burial at the following green burial sites in Scotland.
