We are all aware of the need to protect our planet for future generations. Although an environmentally friendly funeral is a relatively new idea, at Robert Samson we simply see it as another way to provide a dignified farewell. We can now give people the option of an environmentally friendly funeral to rebalance carbon emissions. “Greener Goodbyes” is our simple straightforward service with three elements: an eco-coffin, a natural memorial and a community legacy. Customers can choose how to make their funerals greener from options within those elements.
We’ll assist with everything from woodland burials to the provision of both traditional wooden and alternative coffins from sustainable sources. We can also assist with natural memorials such as the planting, donation or sponsorship of a tree.
There are two woodland burial sites in the Dundee area: Birkhill Cemetery Woodland Burial Site - operated by Dundee City Council and Cairnbrae Natural Burial Ground which is privately operated.
