Green Burial

 

Green or Natural burial is rapidly becoming a more popular option for families in our community.
 
Strode Funeral Home and Cremation is the area's most-experienced green burial provider, and has an exclusive relationship with "Greenhaven Cemetery", the state's only all green burial cemetery.
 
Green burial is also being seen as the alternative to cremation.
 
Green Burial
 
What once was old is new again.
A green burial may sound like a new concept, but before modern funeral practices became common, 
the burial process was very similar to what we call a green burial today.
 
Strode Funeral Home understands that even though green burial has been around for a very long time, the notion is new to many people. Following is a brief descriptionof the green burial process:
 
Before the burial the family may have a traditional or memorial service. The deceased may be embalmed.
 
The deceased is wrapped in a burial shroud and placed on a wooden burial platform; no burial vault is needed.
 
The body is then lowered into the ground; this is called the committal service. After the committal service, the family may choose to leave the cemetery, or they may stay for the closing of the grave. The family may also participate with the filling of the grave.
 
Green Haven is currently Oklahoma’s only green cemetery.  It is located west of Stillwater.
