Water Cremation

A greener form of flameless cremation that’s gentler on the planet.

Cremation.Green is the expert resource for aquamation in Texas. We’ve been helping families arrange water cremations (Alkaline Hydrolysis) for years, and we’ve helped support legislation that provides all Texans with the full range of disposition options. Water cremation is an excellent option for anyone who wants the lowest carbon footprint but would still like to receive cremains.

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Marlaena was absolutely fantastic. She went out of her way and pulled some strings to bring my momma home as fast as possible and I will never forget her kindness. After we initially decided I’d have to look elsewhere, somewhere closer, and after I’d already contacted other options- she reached out to me and made it happen faster (and cheaper!) than even the closest places. Absolutely phenomenal service. I will never forget her name. Thank you. Marlaena!Ashley T.Ashley T. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Compassionate and affordable cremations, staff really cares about families.

And the price was very affordable.Google U.Google U. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Very professional and accommodating. Made my experience seamless. Collecting my Mothers ashes felt more personal rather than business transaction.Agustin A.Agustin A. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Compassionate and affordable cremations, staff really cares about families. Marlaena Gonzalez did an amazing job.Jacob M.Jacob M. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Cremation Green was extremely easy to work with, thorough, and efficient. They were very accommodating on a special request as well.Everything was handled via the phone and web. I didn’t have a need for any face-to-face interactions until I picked-up my son’s ashes. Marlena was great to work with throughout the entire process.Jim H.Jim H. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… My experience with Green Cremation was excellent. Marlena answered the phone every time I called, and was always patient and helpful. Highest recommendation.Rose R.Rose R. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… No one ever wants to use a funeral service twice in a 9 month period but that is exactly what I had to do. Green Cremation made the experience bearable from start to finish.Terry G.Terry G. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Very kind and compassionate. Also very affordable when there's no life insurance to help. Thank you so much for taking good care of my father 💞Sarah E.Sarah E. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… I found GC to be efficient and thoughtful. Curbside delivery to boot!Thanks Marlaena. Highest recommendation!mtprtr P.mtprtr P. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Marlaena went above and beyond to make a difficult time as easy as possible for my family. She was a wealth of knowledge, patient, and kind through the process and I am glad I chose Green Cremation.Sheena H.Sheena H. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Green Cremation Texas was very helpful and pleasant to work with from start to finish. I was present for the pickup of my loved one and conversed with the office multiple times throughout the process. I could not have asked for better care, assistance, and/or guidance during such a time as this. Thank you Green Cremation Texas!Laura G.Laura G. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜† Overall helpful and good people. Marlaena is very patient and professional, we were comfortable leaving our grandmother in their care. I have recommended them to others and I would do so.My one issue has been with the Death Certificates. We paid for multiple copies, and through lots of run around, we are having to take care of that on our own, with the State, /again/. I need the business to offer pick up for Death Certificates. I would have paid a fee to do so. I understand that might be a challenge for liability reasons, but it's got to be better than us having to run around months after our Grandmother's death to still get certificates we already paid for, because we didn't receive the first set, and because we didn't request them originally, have to start this process all over again.Elvira R.Elvira R. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜† We unfortunately had to employ their services in Oct 2021 when our son passed unexpectedly. We made arrangements to have him cremated. They told us the price, and when they thought they would cremate him. So we planned a celebration of life ceremony and burial for several days after that, just to leave time for shipping his remains back to Pennsylvania. We did not realize that we had to pay an additional fee to have his cremation expedited, to get him there on time. The additional fees move your loved one into the schedule. Without it, they will remain in storage until such a time that all the expedited folks are completed. It was not explained to us well at the time. I would have paid the $400 fee up front if I had realized that it would be an issue. Unfortunately, it wasn’t explained like that. I’m sure it wasn’t intentional. And because of our emotional state, we didn’t fully comprehend the way it was explained to us. Overall, they did a nice job. But this business practice of charging to jump the line does not seem fair to others who cannot afford to pay it. They should just charge everyone a little more upfront, and take people in the order they arrive. That is a much better business model.Robyn C.Robyn C. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… They were prompt in picking up my husband, kind, caring and helped me with all of the details via their online service updates. Also, I was able to select a beautiful Raku urn for his ashes.Toni C.Toni C. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Working w/ Green Cremation was a very e asy & straightforward experience during a tough time. Marlaena and their website explained everything clearly regarding the process and all of the associated costs; nothing hidden, everything transparent. Couldn't ask for a more professional service.Jeff A.Jeff A. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… This was the absolute best experience I could have hoped for. Marlena was wonderful, she catered to our every need including making sure we had our ashes and paperwork in hand in time for our trip.

There was not a single burp anywhere in the process.Our family had a lot to deal with and it was great that the cremation, death certificate, obtaining the ashes, etc were all so easy to do via Greens.

THANKS!HueRTaCuLTuRe C.HueRTaCuLTuRe C. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… This was the absolute best experience at the absolute worst time in my life. I lost my mom last week and reached out to Texas Green Cremations. I can’t possibly express what an amazing experience this was. So compassionate, professional and reasonably priced. Melissa took such good care of all the details. I can fully recommend them and will be prearranging for my husband and myself. Our local funeral home was going to cost over $3000.00 and we took care of everything for under $1000.00. Call them, you will not be sorry.Tammy Laikin D.Tammy Laikin D. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… You never want to make this call but when you need to please call Melissa at Green Cremations. This was the most professional, compassionate and easy transaction. Everything from start to finish was handled with care. I truly couldn’t be more pleased. Will most likely prearrange for my husband and myself next.Tammy D.Tammy D. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… I keep trying to write this review and I’m at a loss for words. Death takes the life out of everything around it, not just your loved one, and feeling β€œbrain dead” while trying to plan how to take care of mom for the last time, it just feels like too much! Melissa has been the most present, patient, and intuitive funeral director I’ve ever met in a way that was organic and full of warmth. She let me be as involved in the process as I wanted to be even taking as much time needed to explain all my questions about the logistics and paperwork. It never felt like I was separated by some door and secrecy. I recommend Green Cremation Texas because they weren’t just a funeral home, they became my tribe. For the first time in my experience with death, I didn’t just get a funeral home that helped facilitate closer, I was given an experience that planted the seeds of healing. Thank you.Nani U.Nani U. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Green Cremation Texas helped us through a very difficult time. Specifically Melissa. She was there from start to finish throughout the whole process. Was very flexible with our timeline, and very thorough with the details and communicating with the funeral home. I couldn’t recommend these folks enough. She even checked in with us after the entire process was over and made sure everything went smoothly.We’re so glad we found Green Cremation Texas. I don’t know what we would have done otherwise. Thanks Melissa.Jillian M.Jillian M. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… My daughter died VERY unexpectedly at 24 years old. So there i was trying to figure out what the heck just happened and the medical examiner wants to know if I've picked a funeral home yet. All i knew was that my daughter loved the environment so i started with Google and it led me to Melissa. I cannot stress enough how WONDERFUL this woman is. When i called her all my thoughts were a mess inside my head. I cried and rambled on about my daughter and about what i thought she would like and Melissa LISTENED to me. She then helped me with what i wanted to do for my daughter. She wasn't fazed at all when i wanted to change something, she just made it happen. Melissa always answered any questions i had either by texting me back or emailing me.

Our Eco-Friendly Water Cremation Process

Long before other funeral homes were considering aquamation, Cremation.Green was arranging the service for families across Texas. Death rites are extremely personal, and every person should have the ability to choose from all safe disposition options. This is especially true for water cremation, one of the most environmentally-friendly, safest forms for disposition used today.

What’s Included With Water Cremation

Our water cremation service includes:
  • 24-hour personal assistance from the Director.
  • Transfer of deceased from facility of death or Medical Examiner’s office to refrigerated holding (1st 35 miles from our dispatch areas included).
  • Sheltering of the remains in a temperature-controlled environment up to 5 days (additional $50/day, unless delay is involuntary).
  • AirTray/combo transport wood unit (for transportation)
  • Water cremation services and operations fee.
  • Removal of plastics and medical devices.
  • Alternative cremation container (accommodates up to 249 lbs)
  • 3 death certificates ($30 value)
  • Biodegradable temporary cremains container ($20 value).
  • Appointment to retrieve cremated remains from our office.
Does Not Include: oversize charges, extra death certificates ($4/ea), county permit fee ($25), possible house call ($200), transport to water cremation partner ($600).

If you aren’t quite comfortable with water cremation, our clean flame cremation is another option. We’ve taken traditional cremation services and made them much greener so that less resources are used and fewer pollutants are generated.

Those who want the absolute greenest disposition possible may want to explore natural organic reduction. It’s the newest form of disposition that is being used in numerous states.

Texas’ First Carbon-Neutral Funeral Home

We’re honored to be a funeral home that advocates for families and wants to expand options rather than limit them. Our mission has always been to help innovate the funeral industry so that it better serves people and preserves the environment they live in.

Investing in advanced disposition options.

Over the course of history, disposition has changed, and today is no exception. We’re investing in advanced disposition that has proven to be more sensible, affordable and better for the environment. It’s disposition you can feel better about.

A paperless process that’s convenient and eco-friendly.

We’re an all-digital funeral home that saves clients time and money by removing paper from the process entirely. It’s also one more way Cremation.Green has made every funeral service more eco-friendly.

We recycle plastics and safely dispose of medical devices.

One of the benefits of water cremation is there’s no concern about incinerating plastics and medical devices. We remove those after the water cremation to recycle the plastics if possible and safely dispose of medical devices so they don’t become dangerous pollutants.

We plant trees in honor of every family that we work with.

We have partnered with Sustainable Harvest International to plant trees where they are most needed around the globe.

Sustainable Harvest International is an environmental nonprofit with over 25 years of experience partnering with smallholder farmers to adopt regenerative practices that nourish people and the planet.
