Burial Pod Funeral Services

Prices Start From £995


We offer burial pod funeral services for your loved ones.


Burial pods are an increasingly popular method for arranging the interment of a deceased body in an ecologically sound manner. Like biodegradable urns and eco-friendly coffins, burial pods are chosen because they have a low environmental impact. If you would like to arrange the funeral of a loved one and want to do so in a way that is friendly to the environment, then a burial pod may be worth considering. At Newrest Funerals we have extensive knowledge of all aspects of so-called eco-funerals so we can offer expert guidance with burial pods and other aspects of green funeral arrangements.

If you choose to bury your loved one in a burial pod, then this will be used in place of a traditional coffin. Essentially, burial pods are biodegradable capsules that human bodies can be placed in before they are buried beneath the soil. They provide rich nutrients for the local environment which helps to encourage growth as both they – and the body – degrade over time. In some cases, they are used to promote the growth of a sapling. Some burial pods also contain seeds so that life can begin again.

It is worth noting that not all traditional burial sites will allow for burial pods to be used. This is why turning to compassionate professionals, like those at Newrest Funerals, can be so helpful when making plans for a service that will involve the use of burial pods. Please also note that burial pods do not have to contain the body of the deceased. If the body has been cremated already, then smaller ones containing their ashes can also be buried at a ceremony for mourners.
