What is Aquamation?

Aquamation is a method of final disposition that is available for both our human and pet loved ones.  The scientific name for this water-based process is alkaline hydrolysis.  It is the same process that occurs as part of nature’s course when a body is laid to rest in the soil.  A combination of gentle water flow, temperature, and alkalinity are used to accelerate the breakdown of organic materials.

Why do families choose Aquamation?

Families have expressed:  

  • They are grateful to have a choice.
  • They prefer a process that does not use fire or flame.
  • They prefer receiving 20-30% more of their loved ones’ ashes returned to the family.
  • They believe this to be a more gentle option than flame-based cremation. 
  • They value the decreased environmental impact of the process.
