Woodland Burials

Woodland Burials

A woodland burial is an alternative to a traditional funeral or cremation. 

The idea of laying a loved one to rest amongst nature, surrounded by trees, flowers and wildlife is becoming increasingly popular.

If this is an option you are considering we can help you find a natural burial ground to suit you.

We can provide woodland burials in several locations on the Isle of Wight.
