The Natural Choice

It is now possible to arrange green funerals in the UK, taking comfort in the knowledge that every aspect has been carefully considered to minimise a funeral’s impact on the environment.

Choosing The Ultimate Green Funeral Plan not only assists your loved ones, but also makes a positive statement of intent to help preserve the world in which we live.

Our green funeral plan can include options for natural and biodegradable coffins made of sustainable materials including wood, willow and wool. There is also an option for a Reflections coffin, which may be personalised with a design or image of your choosing. Click here for details.

The entire carbon footprint of a funeral service may be offset by tree planting in conservation areas or by donating funds to preserve endangered rainforests around the world. Additionally, on your behalf, Golden Leaves funeral plans will even contribute to an environmental fund that combats climate change for the benefit of future generations.

You may take out The Ultimate Green Funeral Plan at any age without a medical or health-check. It is a simple process to plan a green funeral service today, and then get on with living! And we’re here to help you every step of the way.

There are three categories from which to choose: the Glade, Meadow or Woodland. Each of these green funeral plans differs in the level of services provided by the funeral director, the number of vehicles required and the type/ style of coffin selected.

Your Golden Leaves green funeral plan covers 100% of the costs listed in your chosen arrangement. There will be no additional costs at the time of the funeral unless you opt for third party services such as musicians or medical expenses.

Our green funeral plans can be paid in instalments. Payment period can be spread between one and five years or longer but through special arrangements. If your passing comes before the completion of the payment, it can be settled after with your estate.

Go one step further with our Community Legacy

Golden Leaves will convert the financial equivalent of a typical funeral’s carbon emissions into a community legacy on your behalf, which helps fund the installation of energy efficient measures in the homes of the elderly and those most in need.

Our Community Legacy fund is managed by Groundwork, the environmental regeneration charity who work locally, regionally and nationally to tackle climate change.
