Woodland Burial

Woodland Burial

Woodland Burial Service - £1850

Our simple Woodland Burial helps families ease the financial burden with a simple and dignified service at a local Woodland Burial Ground. The funeral service can be adjusted to suit your family needs with clear and transparent additional fees.

What is included in our fee?

  • Our administration fees, professional service and expert advice.
  • The transportation of the deceased from any hospital or hospice within a twenty five-mile radius of the M25. We can accommodate a removal from further afield and any additional mileage is charged at 85p per mile.
  • Care and preparation of the deceased at our private Chapel of Rest.
  • A simple eco-friendly coffin, complete with rope handles, a biodegradable shroud and lining and a name plate.
  • The transportation of the deceased to the burial ground and graveside attendance by our staff.
  • Times and dates can be chosen by the family subject to availability. 

What is NOT included in our fee?

  • The transfer of the deceased from private addresses or nursing homes are subject to an additional charge, but we can arrange this for you for £275, subject to location.
  • Burial fees for the woodland burial ground. We can help you with prices from £2,440 (Green Acres, Epping Forest).
  • You may choose to have an officiant or minister at the service. This is not a requirement – more of a personal choice. If you wish for one to attend fees range from approximately £198 – £250. We can arrange this for you if required.
  • Since traditional embalming is not always permitted for woodland burials it may not possible to view your loved one prior to interment. Where preparation is possible, viewings of the deceased in our Chapel of Rest can be arranged. This would cost approximately £195, depending on the day and the time. Please enquire for a cost for your particular requirements.

Disbursements, such as doctor’s fees, are payable on arrangement. The outstanding balance is due 48 hours before funeral takes place.

Adding to the Woodland Burial Package

The above can be added to in any number of ways. Austin, Davis and Son can help you by arranging flowers and wreaths, dove releases, a horse-drawn hearse for the day, and more.
