For such arrangements, forinaldehyde-based embalming is prohibited as is the use of metal or concrete grave-liners, burial vaults, or other permanent burial containers. Caskets, coffins or alternative containers used to enclose and transport the dead are made of bio-degradable materials and are available in a range of prices. Home wakes, public visitations, church funerals and graveside services are options that may be arranged within the time frame green burial allows. As with all of our service and merchandise offerings, detailed price information for each component is itemized on our General Price List and Casket Price List.
