Green Burial is the natural remedy to assist and facilitate the return of the deceased back into the Earth without the need for embalming. The use of an Outer Burial Container and/or embalming, are not required by law, nor are they a requirement of our cemetery when direct Green Burial is your choice.
With each Green Burial an underground Electronic Marker is utilized. This allows for two-way communication with a handheld receiver assuring record keeping accuracy.
You may visit the gravesite at your convenience any time following the burial and bring your own clergy with no additional charges from us.
The purchase of a Green Burial space entitles the owner to all of the following:
- Transfer from place of death (25 mile radius, additional mileage charges beyond)
