Green Burial


We are pleased to offer Green burial to residents of Maryland. Green burial can be fulfilled in any cemetery that allows the casket to be lowered directly into the earth, not into a grave vault. To find out if your cemetery will allow for Green burial it's as simple as asking them or having us inquire for you.


We have arranged for two local cemeteries to allow burials without the use of grave vaults. Many of the grave locations in the two cemeteries are in very natural settings with trees. Tours of the cemeteries can be arranged for you by us. We offer caskets (Photos and prices are below) that are made of natural materials which fully decompose when buried. Body preparation for Green burial offered by Parkview Funeral Home consists of refrigeration, the use of topical sprays/compounds, or arterial embalming with essential oils. No toxic or non-biodegradable materials/chemicals are used.  Public visitations and services in our funeral home, home wakes, church funerals and graveside services are options we can arrange for you within the time frame that a green funeral allows.


   All of the package offerings listed in the General Price List can be adapted to Green burial. A popular option is the Immediate Burial with Graveside Service for $2000.00 plus cost of casket. Please call or visit our funeral home so we can discuss all your Green options with you.  Everything can be pre-arranged and pre-paid in advance.


Prices are effective March 28, 2014 and are subject to change without notice.
