Traditional Funerals | Cremation Services | Natural Burials

Lansing Funeral Home has been assisting with natural burials since 2006, and in 2009 was designated by The Green Burial Council as an approved funeral service provider, and continues to be Tompkins County, NY's only certified green funeral provider.  We offer on premise refrigeration and have expertise in accommodating public visitations and home funeral vigils without the requirement of embalming.

A natural or "green" burial involves returning ones remains to the earth as directly and simply as possible and with a minimum environmental impact.  Natural burials favor interrring your loved one in a simple wood casket or a 100% cotton or linen shroud.  Embalming fluids and burial vaults are not used for burial in a natural cemetery.

At Lansing Funeral Home we offer a variety of American made eco-friendly caskets, shrouds and trundles.  We also offer an extensive selection of biodegradable urns suitable for earth or water burial.
