FUNERAL director Alec Baker is going green in his new venture.

Alec has set up his Burnley firm after almost 15 years in the funeral business.

And as well as offering conventional funerals, Alec specialises in ecological services.

The services include coffins made from environmentally friendly materials which produce fewer emissions when they are cremated.

Alec set up his Bakers Funeral Services venture under the ELTEC Firmbase programme with help from Burnley Enterprise Trust.
