Green Burial

Higgins and Sons have expanded their range of coffins to suit those who would prefer to choose a more “eco friendly” or green approach. The introduction of the willow and pandanus coffins (made in Ireland) have become very popular, see below...

Natural Burial Grounds

Woodbrook Natural Burial Ground opened a “green” or natural burial ground in 2010.

According to Woodbrook “a natural burial ground is a graveyard where the land has a second use as a living, developing natural nature reserve / woodland. Gone are the marble headstones and concrete surrounds that are commonplace in other Irish burial grounds, replaced instead by a small simple grave marker and the planting of a native Irish tree or sowing of wildflower seed”

Note: You do not have to choose a natural burial ground, you can also just choose a willow coffin as an alternative to the traditional oak coffin if you want to be buried in any cemetery in Ireland or cremation if that is your preference.
