Green Burials

Eternally Resting in Nature

We understand that many families are not familiar with the concept of Green Burials. However, Green Burials are by far the most natural alternative to a traditional burial, allowing loved ones to rest naturally.

 

Options & Details

General Rules

No service arrangement will be accepted without a 48 hour prior notice. The property owner must sign the internment authorization and the financial arrangements for the charges must be paid 24 hours before service time.


No services will be held on Memorial Day, Labor Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve/Day, or New Year's Day.

Grave Liners Policy:

Modern Burials

Mountain Creek Cemetery LLC requires an outer burial container to surround the casket for any ground burial. A concrete grave box liner is the minimum requirement. Funeral homes may supply grave liners, and Mountain Creek Cemetery will charge a $200 setting fee.


Green Burials

Concrete grave liners are not required for green/direct burials. All burial items must be biodegradable (no exceptions).

Additional Green Burial Rules:

Family Participation

Families are given the opportunity to be involved with the burial ritual process as long as participation is deemed safe by Mountain Creek Cemetery and does not conflict with state law.

Burial Containers

Eco-friendly burial containers of any kind are required and welcomed, including wooden caskets, woven caskets, and shrouds.
