Green Funerals and Woodland Funerals in Devon
Allwood Funeral Directors in Devon understand that a Funeral Service should be a reflection and a celebration of a life, as well as the acknowledgement of the loss of a loved one Allwood Funeral Directors believe in assisting and supporting families to a funeral that is most in keeping for the person who has died and if that choice is a Green Funeral or Woodland Funeral we are here to help you every step of the way. The funeral is an important part of the healing and bereavement process and for many people the funeral is the beginning of Saying goodbye.
Allwood Funeral Directors carry out many 'traditional' burials and cremations, over the last few years we have seen an increase in requests for Green Funerals and Woodland Funerals. This is why Allwood Funeral Directors offer the more ecological alternative of Green and Woodland Funerals. We traditionally use hearses and limousines, but as more people become concerned about their carbon footprint, some choose to have a horse drawn hearse and an LPG limousine as a more eco friendly method of transport. Whilst we can offer a full range of traditional coffins we can supply willow, banana-leaf coffins, bamboo and wicker which look every bit as dignified as the traditional wooden Coffins For more information about our range of Coffins click here. You will see from our coffin page that there are many choices now of type of coffin, from the more traditional to the eco-friendly option or the more personalised decorated by your family.
The term 'green burial' means an eco-friendly burial in a wood or meadow so as to create and protect wildlife habitat. If a family prefers cremation rather than burial, we can arrange the cremation service at a local crematorium. The ashes can then be buried at a Green or Woodland funeral site in a separate ceremony, a short time later. We are an Independent Funeral Directors offering a full range of services with our own Chapel of Rest so your loved one never leaves our care. Allwood Funeral Directors offer a personal service and are here to help and support you through the practicalities of laying a loved one to rest.
