Funeral Choices

Did you know you have a wide array of choices when it comes to end-of-life arrangements? It's not just about traditional burials and cremations anymore. Today, there are numerous options available, including eco-friendly choices that are becoming increasingly popular among those who value environmental consciousness.

One of the most significant shifts is towards eco-aware options. We stay updated on these choices to inform our customers and are genuinely enthusiastic about the upcoming changes. We believe that offering a variety of choices is crucial in any circumstance, as how one is remembered holds great importance.

For some individuals, having their family visit a grave is not preferred. They might opt to have their ashes scattered in a meaningful location. Others may choose their burial plot in advance, pre-pay for services, and organise their funeral arrangements before their passing. Ultimately, it all comes down to personal preference. Let us introduce you to some of these options:

Local Woodland sites for burials, which are natural grounds enveloped by trees, plants, and wildlife, creating a serene and tranquil environment. The burial plots are designated with a tree or a small plaque and are open for visits from family and friends. The container where the individual rests would be made of an eco-friendly material that does not impact the area or its surroundings. These natural burial sites can also accommodate scattering ashes or placing them in an environmentally friendly urns during the burial process. Natural burial site plots tend to be more affordable than traditional burials. A memorial service would still take place within the site. very similar procedures would remain. Some examples of sites near to Mansfield, Nottinghamshire are; Tithe Green based in Oxton, Nottinghamshire and Ketton, Rutland.
