Types of burials
Depending on the location of the burial taking place, there will be different factors to take into consideration. Whether you already have a family burial plot in a cemetery to re-open or you would like to purchase a new one, we can assist you throughout this process and speak to the authority on your behalf. Please note, if there is a current headstone connected to a family plot, this may need to be removed temporarily for the re-open to take place.
At the interment, our team would lower the coffin into the ground, however, if you would like family members or friends to assist with the lowering for a more personal goodbye, please let us know.
A traditional burial could take place in a churchyard or local cemetery, we would liaise with the organisation on your behalf. Our monumental mason could install a headstone or add wording to an existing one after the burial takes place. Head to our directory to find your nearest local cemetery or churchyard.
Woodland ‘Green’ Burial
An alternative option to a traditional burial, this offers an eco- friendly and more natural way of being laid to rest. Each site has their own rules and regulations, however, commonly a headstone is not permitted, and the grave would be marked with a memorial tree or flowers. Some sites do offer a small chapel where a service can be held, or the service can be taken around the graveside.
