100 Year Anniversary
A wonderful parting gift

Woodland Burial


Woodland Burials

For those who were nature lovers in life, what better parting gift could possibly be given than a woodland burial? Whether you think they would prefer to be laid to rest in a beautiful meadow or a tranquil forest, there are a number of green burial and woodland burial sites in Durham, and we would be more than happy to advise you about their location and the procedures involved.

Woodland burials are perfect for families who would rather avoid the formality of a traditional memorial at a cemetery, and as such green and woodland burials tend to be much more private affairs. You and those closest to your loved one will be able to say your final goodbyes in a peaceful environment, safe in the knowledge that they will be returning to a place they cherished in life.

Based in Durham but serving families throughout the surrounding areas such as Newton Hall Belmont and Coxhoe, Alderson’s Family Funerals would be happy to help you organise a woodland burial for your loved one. To learn more about the process and to receive friendly advice from a caring professional, please contact us.

Yes you can, but in order to do this, we will need the deeds or definite confirmation as to the location. Most councils require the deeds or an indemnity signed. There are often strict rules regarding the erection of memorials in churchyards and cemeteries and we can advise you of these at the time.
