We are more than happy to offer Green Burial to our families should they request it. Green Burial can be fulfilled in any cemetery that allows the casket to be lowered directly into the earth without the use of a grave liner or vault. To find out if your cemetery will allow for Green Burial you can contact the cemetery directly or we can reach out to them for you.
We have arrangements with a cemetery that allows Green Burials should you need us to contact them for you and offer a variety of biodegradable caskets made of materials that will decompose when buried. Public visitations and services in our funeral home are options we can arrange for you within the time frame that a Green Burial allows.
All of the package offerings listed under Burial Packages can be altered to accommodate a Green Burial. A popular option would be a Direct Burial (see prices below)
Direct Burial includes: Bringing your loved one into our care, Service Charge, Dressing and Casketing, coordinating with cemetery to schedule the Burial, use of Hearse, and use of Funeral Director and staff for the burial.

*Outside expenses are charges that may be required by vendors other than the funeral home. They can be but are not limited to: Certified Copies of Death Certificates, Clergy/Church charges, newspaper notices, and cemetery charges.
