We are now able to offer families an alternative to flame-based cremation. Aquamation, or alkaline hydrolysis, is a gentle water-based process. Like flame cremation, ashes are returned to the family following a natural process which accelerates the way remains are broken down in the earth. Aquamation is more favorable to the environment. It uses significantly less energy than flame-based cremation and does not emit harmful gases or Mercury into the atmosphere. For families looking for a natural process with a lower carbon footprint, aquamation is an excellent choice.
We encourage families to consider a memorial ceremony as it is an important part of the healing process. Ceremony allows families to gather and receive support. Aquamation provides the opportunity to honor a loves one’s life through a memorial service or burial of ashes.
