Green Burials

Green Burial: Naturally Caring for Those We Love
Many people are searching for more natural solutions to end-of-life care, and here at Fellows, Helfenbein, and Newnam, we are proud to offer those families the choice of green burial.

A green burial ensures the burial site remains as natural as possible in all respects. Interment of the body can be done in a bio-degradable casket or burial shroud. Traditional embalming chemicals, caskets, and outer burial containers are avoided entirely in natural burial. The simplicity of a green burial is in tune with nature and need not be expensive.

Fellows, Helfenbein & Newnam is the only funeral home in Maryland to offer an all inclusive style to true natural burial.  We offer this at two of our privately owned cemeteries: Bestgate Memorial Park - Annapolis, MD and Woodlawn Memorial Park - Easton, MD

If green burial is in keeping with your personal values, please contact us to assist you in making this a reality for you or for a loved one. Please call us at (410) 758-1151 to speak with a funeral professional about your decision to “go green.” We also invite you to visit the Maryland Green Burial website to learn more.
