The Living Memorial kit was created by an international community of experts who share a passion for life–even in death.
Through our combined expertise in counselling, biology, chemistry and mortuary science, we’ve developed a holistic mindset that guides people through their loss and helps them heal.
Woodland Burial Company
Before we launched the Living Memorial kits in Europe we founded The Woodland Burial Company.
It was whilst carrying out research for our Woodland Burial Company that we started to discover the harmful effects cremated remains can have on their immediate environment and beyond.
As the woodland burial ground follows a strict environmental code of practice, it was important for us to find a solution to the ecological issues we were now aware of.
During our search for solutions we were amazed how little research or data there was on the subject. This is when we met Bob Jenkins, creator of the Living Memorial kit (known as Let Your Love Grow in America).
