Eric F. Box Funeral Directors

Celebrating remarkable lives with memorable funerals

What happens?

The funeral ceremony is almost identical to one that might be witnessed in a traditional cemetery or churchyard, the only real difference being when the ceremony is over. At that point the cortege travels to an official woodland burial site for the interment, as opposed to a cemetery or churchyard.

Once there, the interment is, again, a mirror image of a more traditional interment whereby everyone gathers around the grave in the company of a minister / funeral celebrant, who says some words ahead of the coffin being lowered into the grave.
