Next StepsWhen choosing burial, the final resting place for your loved one is a very important decision. The Searson Family Funeral Services goal is to help you understand and make the decision easier for you and for your family at such a sad time. We can provide beautiful, convenient, and affordable options for your family, and help you to honour your loved one's with dignity and compassion.


Natural Woodland Burial

Portchester CremToday people are looking at alternative ways to offer their farewell to a loved one lost by incorporating elements of celebration and remembrance. Families are now becoming aware of the many options and choices available and, as such, are now knowledgeable of the different ways a funeral can be carried out. One way people are now moving away from the traditional burial and that is to have a natural or woodland burial


These rustic and unspoilt burial sites are increasing in popularity with several new sites opened within this area in just a short period of time. The idea of a natural or woodland burial isn’t only to be at one with the tranquil qualities of nature, they also provide an opportunity to reduce the impact funerals create on the environment. ‘Green’ funerals are nothing new and the concept has been ongoing for many years. The impact cremation has on the atmosphere, processes in coffin manufacturing, refrigeration, vehicles used, they all contribute an towards an impact on our environment that is beginning to be unsustainable.

Sustainability Centre at East Meon

Havant CremThe Sustainability Centre at East Meon is our local woodland burial site we tend to carry out most of our natural burials at. The informal atmosphere of the Sustainability Centre, the way in which natural is encourage to flourish as intended, unspoilt, calming and beautifully nurtured. For any family thinking about a natural burial we highly recommend a visit to this site, see for yourself what it has to offer by looking around and speaking with the staff.
