MacCoubrey Funeral Home has been working hand in hand with Cobourg Union Cemetery to develop a green option for the
environmentally concerned members of the public. The green package offered by the funeral home include environmental
embalming, environmental caskets, reduced vehicle usage and can also include environmental stationery. In conjunction
with this, the cemetery has opened a green section for environmental burials. These are immediate burials, or those
environmentally embalmed and use environmental containers or caskets. No standard embalmings or cremations are allowed
in this section of the cemetery. The green section is left in a natural setting with limited grounds keeping. Central
field stone markers are used rather than monuments and tree planting and natural vegetation are encouraged.
Check out our Green Burial Services and Merchandise Pages. If you have any questions about Green Burial, please take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions page specifically about Green Burials.
