Green Burial Pricing Options


Green (or natural) burial emphasizes simplicity and environmental sustainability. The body is neither cremated nor prepared with chemicals such as traditional embalming fluids. Your loved one placed in a biodegradable coffin or shroud and buried without a vault. The grave site is allowed to return to nature. This allows for the complete decomposition of the body and its natural return to the soil. 

These offerings allow for a funeral to take place without the use of toxic and non-biodegradable materials/chemicals.

Caskets and shrouds are made available to enclose and transport the dead. Body preparation suitable for a green funeral service accommodated by this funeral home consists of refrigeration, the use of topical sprays/compounds, or arterial embalming with essential oils.

Home wakes, public visitations, church funerals and graveside services are options that may be arranged within the time frame that a green burial allows.

Please check our supplemental price list for detailed price information regarding our service and merchandise offerings.
