Green Funeral Service Options
Nelsen Funeral Home & Crematory is one of a select number of funeral establishments approved by the Green Burial Council, a nonprofit organization working to make burial more sustainable, economically viable, and meaningful. We are pleased to offer a green burial package, which provides everything necessary for graveside burial within a green or conventional cemetery and in certain instances at homestead burial sites. Bundled services include storage, transportation, supervision of the burial, and the filing of all necessary documentation, permits and certificates. A burial container, which can be either a shroud or biodegradable casket, is available at an additional cost, or as part of another package. Although formaldehyde-based embalming is prohibited, a funeral with a viewing can be arranged for an additional charge. 5% of the proceeds from this package go to support of the work of the Green Burial Council.
Traditional Green Funeral - $4295.00
Includes all services shown in funeral service packages, except use of non-formaldehyde based products for embalming services.
Simple Green Funeral - $2945.00

In addition to the package prices above, add cost of an ecologically friendly casket:
Handcrafted Woven Seagrass Casket with Cotton Lining $1895.00
Unfinished Wooden Casket $965.00
