Self Help & Woodland Burials

Some families wish to have a greater personal and practical involvement in carrying out the funeral. In such cases we are willing to provide any part of our range of services and products separately, without us necessarily being further involved in the funeral. An estimate covering any required item can be provided, without obligation.

We maintain details of various woodland burial sites and can obtain current burial costs on request. The Natural Death Centre is also able to offer further advice to those wishing to organise alternative funerals.
