What are woodland burials?

The burial typically takes place in a designated woodland area, in Pembrokeshire, where graves are dug without the use of concrete or metal caskets. Instead, biodegradable materials such as wooden coffins, shrouds, or urns are used, allowing the body to decompose naturally and return to the earth.

Benefits of a woodland burial

Woodland burials offer several environmental benefits compared to traditional burial methods. Here are some of the main advantages:

  • Woodland burials utilise biodegradable materials such as wooden, willow or bamboo coffins, resulting in lower carbon emissions and a reduced carbon footprint.
  • Woodland burials allow the body to decompose naturally, returning essential nutrients to the soil, promoting plant growth and biodiversity in the surrounding ecosystem.
  • Woodland burial sites provide valuable habitat for a variety of plant and animal species.
  • The natural setting of woodland burial sites offers a serene and spiritually meaningful final resting place. This can bring a sense of peace and tranquillity, offering comfort to the deceased's loved ones.
