At [[vermont Forest Cemetery]], we believe that cemeteries should be a sanctuary long after the time of burial. Our services are designed to meet the specific mourning needs of each person we work with. In the forest there are countless reminders of the necessary relationship between death and life and each burial helps restore the forest and conserve it in perpetuity. This commitment to both the people and the forest is revolutionary.
Our hope is that all people seeking environmentally and economically sustainably burial options find a sense of place in our cemetery.
A sampling of our offerings is listed below. For burial, interment, of ashes, and information about the memorial grove refer to our "Our Services" tab.
We can create a customized, online memorial for you to share. The memorial includes the obituary and any photographs you wish to provide. It will serve as a place for visitors to post condolences, share memories, upload photos, and light virtual candles. If you wish, the memorial can include a map or GPS coordinates of the burial site.
We make it easy for people to send flowers to your home or to the cemetery. We have partnered with local florists to offer the convenience of ordering directly from the obituary page of our website. You can also use this feature to select the flowers you would like at the burial. This is a secure way to choose beautiful arrangements from the privacy and comfort of your home.
We reduce the stress of contacting those who need the details of the burial service. We prepare the dates and times of the burial service. These can be included publically as part of the online memorial on our website or provided to you privately. You can share the memorial on social media, copy the details from the site into an email or text, or forward the information we send you. These options give you the peace of mind that you have accurately provided the necessary information to those who need it.
