You may also choose a coffin from a more sustainable material such as willow, which is coppiced or harvested rather than having to be cut down. We have a large selection available. Following the funeral, you may want to plant a tree in memory of your loved one, again we can advise you on this and of the options available.
As a company – we are determined to do our part to help the environment – The recent extensions to our facilities at Bradenheath have been built in a manner and with materials that are designed to be as gentle as possible on the planet.
Within our grounds at Bradenheath we have a garden, including a pond that leads to a wooded area filled with mature alder and other native species all of which are visible from the ceiling to floor windows in our service chapel. This woodland area supports a large selection of native bird species many of whom feed at the birdfeeders provided. Amongst the trees are bird boxes and a bat box.
The plants we have planted give us an abundance of insects such as dragon flies and bees. We aim to nurture the woodland and gardens in a way that is both pleasing to people and wildlife.
