GREEN BURIALS

Cornerstone Funeral Services promotes environmentally friendly burial practices for those who desire a funeral in harmony with the earth. Green and Natural Funerals are reminiscent of a bygone time when it was customary practice to bury in a way that allowed the body to return to the earth naturally.

 

For those committed to caring for our planet, natural burial is a uniquely satisfying choice, as well as a profoundly moving memorial.

 

By providing natural burial services, we endeavor to practice good stewardship in making it possible for families to care for the Earth, as we care for their loved ones. A growing number of families are now choosing services of this type to honor their loved ones.

 

Families may opt for services at home, in our funeral home, at their place of worship or other location, or even simply at the graveside. Services can be officiated by a clergyman, funeral celebrant, family member or friend. They may choose to honor their loved one by inviting those present to share thoughts and memories. We can help plan the service of choice.

 

For those who already own space or prefer burial in another cemetery, we can provide a green funeral. If a burial vault is required by the cemetery, we can provide one that allows contact with the earth.

 

Green Burial Resources

Simple and natural. Green burial, or natural burial, ensures the burial site remains as natural as possible in all respects. Interment of the bodies is done in a biodegradable casket, shroud, or in a favorite blanket. No embalming fluid, no concrete vaults.
