Here at Fenns Meadow, although we do not make coffins, shrouds or urns ourselves we can help you decide on what is best for you and help you find it. When choosing a Green/Natural Burial the coffin, shroud or urn that you wish to be buried within, needs to be chosen quite carefully. The vast majority of manufactured coffins or urns are made from MDF, plastic and veneers which are of course, damaging to the environment and wont biodegrade.
Here at Fenns Meadow, we request that you use a coffin that has been made from Natural Materials only, such as willow, wicker, wood, bamboo or cardboard. Urns can be made of a similar variety of materials as well. Shrouds can be made from pure cotton, jute and felt, all of these can biodegrade naturally.
BellacoucheI design and make felt products that make best use of wool's special properties of warmth, strength and flexibility. The Felt Leaf cocoon is in the shape of a leaf, an image which evokes the changing seasons of life and an appropriate choice for a natural funeral. It is used instead of a coffin, in either woodland or traditional burial grounds. Please click the link FELT to go to their website:
