Green Burials

Green Burial: Caring for Those We Love Naturally
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 is done in a bio-degradable casket, shroud, or a favorite blanket. No embalming fluid is used, no traditional casket or concrete vault. The simplicity of a green burial is in tune with nature and need not be expensive.

If green burial is in keeping with your personal values, we will be pleased to assist you in making this option 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.
