About Us

Specialists for Green and Alternative Funerals and Woodland Burials in Manchester, Cheshire, Merseyside and South Lancashire.


Natural Endings are national award winning Green Funeral Directors of the Year 2013. We were delighted to be recognised for our work by The Good Funeral Guide.

At Natural Endings whoever sees you initially will guide you through the days leading to the funeral and the funeral itself. We feel that it is important that you get this personal care and continuity.

Also we believe in same sex care. So it will be Rosie that takes care physically of your late grandma, mum, wife/partner, daughter, or sister.

We understand that lives are busy at this time and that there is lots to do. Therefore through appointment we can visit you at home, if you wish, to take arrangements and give you a no-commitment estimate. Alternatively you can visit us at our funeral home in South Manchester.

We are an independent company and not part of any funeral directing chains.

Rosie Grant first became involved with funerals in 1995. Whilst nursing her terminally ill mum Zoe she began, at Zoe’s request, to look into options for her funeral. When the time came friends made the coffin, they had the funeral in a thatched barn and she was buried in a woodland burial ground with a hawthorn tree planted on her grave.

“We found that by having a very personal funeral in a venue where we could take our time was a very cathartic experience. It was a wonderful day, full of sadness but with great love and pride too. It helped us all immensely”

Rosie wanted to enable other families to have unique appropriate farewells for their loved ones. She trained to become an alternative funeral arranger and went on to work in London and Sheffield.

Natural Endings offer a range of talks and workshops in topics such as ‘Green Funerals’, ‘Changing Funeral Customs’, ‘Ways To Improve Funerals’ and ‘Planning A Funeral’. For the Community and Education page please click here. We have a funeral planning workshop on the 1st march 2014.

Rosie has appeared on BBC radio 4’s Woman’s Hour.
