Arranging An Eco Funeral

When arranging an eco-funeral we can take care of every aspect; from arranging the venue to providing floral tributes. Our services include producing service sheets, organising transportation for the deceased and the next of kin and ordering memorial stones, as well as any other requests. Thus, ensuring a respectful final farewell that is both fitting and personal. We can source a range of eco-friendly coffins and unique floral tributes to beautifully complement an environment-inspired service. Furthermore, we also provide more traditional funeral arrangement services.

Natural Burial Grounds

Green burials typically take place at natural burial grounds, such as woodlands, meadows or parkland. There are several designated natural burial grounds to choose from throughout Devon and Cornwall. Richardson Funeral Directors will guide you through the process and make service arrangements that best meets your needs, as well as the wishes of the deceased.
