Dorking Funeral Directors
We are Surrey Green Burials an independent Surrey Funeral Directors in Dorking, who believe that everyone has the right to decide how their loved ones final journey ends. Nestled deep in the heart of the Surrey Hills and surrounded by nature, we have a desire to help you create meaningful celebrations of life. We want you to become fully aware of what is truly possible for a unique funeral or memorial which totally reflects the life of the person you care about.
We at Surrey Green Burials feel that many funerals have lost the very human element of funeral arranging. Hundreds of years ago the aspect of caring for the dead and funeral arranging was given to the women of the village. The women would be given the very intimate and personal task of preparing and caring for the body. Over time this tradition has been taken over by large corporations who somehow believe that taking these important moments away from people is a good thing.

Our Ethos / About us
The funeral business is not a terribly green one, which is why we have set ourselves …
Affordable Life Celebrations
We believe there is nothing more natural than death, and yet what we have found, is that families don’t have the know how to deal with it. We have become so cut off from this part of life, that we feel unable to do one of the most natural things in the world. Oftentimes when people turn to Funeral Directors for help at this time, they are met with well meaning ‘traditional procedures’ of black sombrely dressed people and an equally dark and dismal ceremony to match. We at Surrey Green Burials believe that there is another, more personal way to say goodbye and this comes from you being in control of the process.
We believe that if you have all the information you need, you can make informed choices about how much you want to be involved in the care of the person you love. We can enable you to actually be involved with the care of your loved ones in ways which are helpful to you, in your grieving process.
Our aim is to help our families through this perfectly natural, though painful stage in life. To help them make the most of those precious moments between death and their final goodbyes. Enabling families and friends to say farewell in ways that are truly meaningful to them, allowing space and time for everything they need to express.
Your Ethical Surrey Funeral Directors
When someone is bereaved it can feel like everything is suddenly spinning out of control. As Surrey Funeral Directors we want to put you back in the driving seat – to give you back the control, to allow you to make truly informed choices about what happens, for you and your loved one.
We pride ourselves in creating with you, modern, simple, meaningful, green and completely bespoke funerals and memorials. This way you can be sure that you get what you want for your celebration of life.
We want to help you ensure that those moments between death and memorial feel completely right for you, and at the same time won’t cost you more than is absolutely necessary.
With our support you can expect to create a meaningful and appropriate goodbye. We will help you every step of the way – whether it’s a humble silent reflection service or a lively celebration to echo the life of the person you once knew. Each funeral is tailored to your needs and budget, allowing you the freedom to have what works best for you.
If you want more involvement in the funeral you can have it. However, if you want us to take the reigns then we can do this too. Some people are under the impression that funerals are for funeral directors to do. This could not be further from the truth. You, who knew and loved this person are in the best position to know what they would have wanted. That is why we take time to spend with you, to find out exactly what it is you want from our funeral services. There are more options than you might think.
Many believe that funerals only take place in one or two places, the crematorium or the church. What people don’t realise is that you can have a funeral anywhere you like! Knowing this frees up options for you to create a funeral that is fitting for the person who died. If they loved opera or gardening then create and plan a funeral service which reflects these pastimes.
Please call in to speak to us about what you might like for the funeral of the person you care about.
