Green funerals in Winslow
Eco and green funeral are becoming more popular as people look for more environmentally friendly funeral options. A green or eco funeral makes as little impact on the natural world as possible. A person is buried in either woodland or a wildflower meadow, inside a biodegradable coffin or shroud, and a tree is planted instead of a headstone. Our experienced team will provide you with support should you wish to arrange green funeral, and will also be able to advise you on the ways you can make a traditional funeral more eco-friendly.
Winsow is fortunate to have three natural burial grounds in the local region – Aylesbury Vale Natural Burial Meadow and Cosgrove Green Burial Meadow are both within a 30-minute drive of Winslow, whilst Olney Green Burial Ground will take around 35-40 minutes.
