Finding peace in a woodland burial

In a natural woodland burial, the body is placed in a shroud or coffin made from bio-degradable material. Great care is taken to protect and enhance areas of outstanding beauty, allowing your loved ones to become part of a habitat rich with a variety of plants and wildlife. Trees and plants may form a natural and fitting memorial.
