★★★★★ Love the eco-friendly option and the knowledgeable funeral director on staffBrian G.Brian G. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ Compassionate and affordable cremations, staff really cares about families. Marlaena Gonzalez did an amazing job.Jacob M.Jacob M. ★★★★★ Caring staff, any questions are always answered quickly and I appreciated being able to text the funeral director and do everything online. And the price was very affordable.Google U.Google U. ★★★★★ Very professional and accommodating. Made my experience seamless. Collecting my Mothers ashes felt more personal rather than business transaction.Agustin A.Agustin A. ★★★★★ Compassionate and affordable cremations, staff really cares about families. Marlaena Gonzalez did an amazing job.Jacob M.Jacob M. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ I found GC to be efficient and thoughtful. Curbside delivery to boot!Thanks Marlaena. Highest recommendation!mtprtr P.mtprtr P. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★☆ 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. ★★★★☆ 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. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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. I can't thank her enough for making this experience the best it could have possibly been under the circumstances.Trish C.Trish C. ★★★★★ Great to work with …KristieHurnKristieHurn ★★★★★ Very thoughtful, clear, and accomodating - this is a great sensitive provider of this important serviceDavid C.David C. ★★★★★ Marlaena has such a kind and patient manner.

It's amazing to be able to do everything online. Great job! Highly recommend!Cyndi G.Cyndi G. ★★★★★ Green Cremation Texas provided excellent service across the board, from the first communication via Facebook Messenger through shipping of the cremated remains. Marlaena always struck the perfect note between sensitive and professional; I received responses to all messages and e-mails within an hour or two; I never felt pressured to purchase any extra "bells and whistles"; and the service cost less than half that of other funeral homes contacted. I highly, highly recommend this company.Cristina B.Cristina B. ★★★★★ It was hard to pick a funeral home for my son who died out of state. Green Cremation fit in with my son's love of nature.

B. ★★★★★ I can’t say enough good things about the people working here. Everyone was very helpful and respectful. I appreciate how considerate they were with my dad.Jennifer H.Jennifer H. ★★★★★ During a very difficult time, Green Cremation Texas made things a little easier. We first used them for our mother when she died in December 2020 and then again for our father when he died in May 2022. In both cases they were responsive, professional and caring. They also have a wonderful selection of urns that allowed us to pick ones we felt would suit our parents -- a raku pottery urn for our mother, a wood crafted one for our father.WendyWendy ★★★★★ Very professional and caringRon S.Ron S. ★★★★★ I've been fortunate never to have had to make arrangements for a family member but have had enough second hand exposure that I was absolutely dreading it as my father's life was winding down. Suffice to say, Green Cremation lived up to all the amazing reviews. They were always available whenever needed, kept communications simple and always compassionate, and have made a difficult process a straightforward and affordable matter. I did have some issues with the website when trying to select and pay for my father's cremation, but Marianna was very responsive when there were glitches.

Thank you sincerely.Reese S.Reese S. ★★★★★ Marlaena and co. took great care of us from start to finish. We lost our dad in a tragic way and we were always treated with empathy, kindness, and care.

Very upfront and answered all my questions, concerns ect..Very professional and courteous. I am glad to have been served by them. Only wish is I wanted a little more time with my loved one before pick up by funeral home... not their fault. I would have waited a little longer for them to pick up...Very pleased with the experienceChristal B.Christal B. ★★★★★ Green Cremation was so amazing during such a hard time for my family. The way they handled my grandmother with such dignity and respect was so appreciated by our family. I would recommend anyone that unfortunately had to face losing a loved one to use Green Cremation. To know that it is one of the most eco friendly cremations and the choices they provide for your loved ones remains. I received a scatter tube covered is my grandmothers favorite flower…..Beautiful Roses, but I also will be planting two trees, and they even provided seeds to plant wildflowers in her memory. Although it was a very hard decision to make, Green Cremation provided the most amazing support. I am forever grateful to Marlaena and others ❤️Joy H.Joy H. ★★★★★ After reading numerous positive reviews about Green Cremation Texas, I chose to reach out to them and make all the necessary arrangements for my mother who recently passed from Alzheimer's. It turned out to be the perfect choice.I had phone conversations with Marlaena many times and she answered my numerous questions with such kindness, patience and compassion. The way she spoke to me always had a very calming effect and being as stressed and sad as I was, that was exactly what I needed. Marlaena walked me through the process in a way that simplified things. Giving her information about my mom over the phone and filling out a few online forms was really quite easy.Also, I must give recognition to Ron and Samantha, the two Green Cremation Texas employees who did the pickup and transport of my mother's body. They were so kind and respectful in the way they talked with me and my brother, answering various questions we had. Not once did we feel rushed. Before she was transported, we got to say our final goodbyes to our mom.Green Cremation Texas has my absolute highest recommendation. They came through in every possible way for our mom and our family. Kindness, compassion, respect and thoughtfulness... during a very difficult time of loss, Green Cremation Texas will come through for you.Eric LEric L ★★★★★ Everyone was so helpful and they kept me updated on all of the process.Toni V.Toni V. ★★★★★ It is hard to lose a loved one. This year I lost 2. My dad in April and immediately there after, my mom, on Mothers Day. My dad had pre-arranged all his plans. My mom, living in a nursing home, had not and I, being the only child remaining, ( my brother died years ago) was tasked with handling all the finals involved. She had already indicated to me she wanted to be cremated so I knew that much and nothing more. Mainly because I hadn’t seen it coming so I was unprepared. I couldn’t afford the conventional funeral home where she was transported so I had to get my search on while also being in a dazed and shocked state of mind. I hope this little explanation sets up the scene of understanding what I was going through. I hadn’t even gotten to the mourning point for losing dad and now mom? Whoa. Anyway I started calling around and thought I had discovered the people and company I would use but it turned out they were more concerned about getting as much money as they could before hand with their fakery sad voice which turned to anger when I said they wouldn’t be getting her insurance policy up front. Not to mention it was a debilitating small amount. It was just a burial plan. Their attitude scares me to say the least. So back to drawing board I had to go all the while stressing out that mom was laying in a lonely cold freezer draw somewhere. (That is a weird type of stress.) I googled the same sentence I had used before and scrolled the listings of “Cremation Co’s.” I can’t say how long I was staring at the page when I realized I wasn’t even reading just blank staring when a word caught my eye. The word was GREEN. I honed in that for some odd reason. GREEN CREMATIONS TEXAS. The next thing which caught my eye was, Call or TXT now. I clicked and was absolutely fascinated. The whole premise of this company is relaxing, inviting, easy and somehow comforting. A “green” cremation is just that. Environmentally friendly. It is also emotionally friendly. I can’t explain it but I just knew it had to be GreenCremationsTexas. Spiritually speaking it just makes sense. So I texted. And met Eric and Marlaena. I cannot tell you the depth of their true goodness. In the world we live in today we do things differently. We txt instead of call. We do our research first, read reviews and such but I can’t tell you how amazing it was to do business with GCT. No hassles. No hidden agenda. No slimy attempts to extract as much $$$ as possible. And most importantly no fakery. During a time of grieving you need simple, straightforward steps. And you will find it with GCT. Each and every step was modern and SO user friendly! What you are quoted is what you pay. No joke. Eric and Marlaena took care of everything. EVERYTHING. With all the grace, respect and condolences of a family. They are beautiful. All handled by phone calls or txting all arrangements done through email and online. Plain, simple and truly stress free. Which means a whole lot when you are going through it. Then to top it off you don’t have to drive anywhere to pick up anything, it is all done discreetly through the mail. Green Cremations Texas is beautiful. It feels right. It was an honor and a blessing to be served by Marlaena and the team. They are a true blessing to all the communities they serve. The process they have captured reflects the world we live in today and they do it with such finesse! Somehow they are able to take your hand and help you like a loving family member and that is how I feel about them.Rebecca C.Rebecca C. ★★★★★ When our son died in Austin his body was taken to the city morgue. We flew in 2 days later and got a hotel room so we could close out his apartment. We searched the web and found Green Cremation. They were great. We were able to handle the whole process, from choosing what we wanted to signing the legal documents to paying for the cremation, on a cell phone in our hotel room. We really appreciate the ease with which we were able take care of everything due to the great people at Green Cremation.Wally P.Wally P. ★★★★★ My parents were the most important people in the world for my family. The caring spirit that we received from Green Cremation for my beloved parents and for all of us, made this difficult time bearable. My dearest Father was a proud WWII veteran and Green Cremation honored him in the most respectful way. It meant the world to us. God bless you all for all that you did for our family. We will never forget.Irene G.Irene G. ★★★★★ Very attentive to my families needs. Very professional and caring in a difficult time. Most transactions were on line or by phone.CA G.CA G. ★★★★★ At the time of sadness in my life it was great to know that someone was taking the time to listen to my immediate need trought. The entire process I was able to depend on their help and support again that's from the bottom of my hart.Raymond Emile C.Raymond Emile C. ★★★★★ Our family lost our sister in Round Rock, and being from out of town, we turned to Green Cremation Texas for assistance. They were exceptional in helping us through the process and returning our sister’s remains to us in an incredibly timely process. We are very appreciative of their services.Bennett C.Bennett C. ★★★★★ Patient, helpful and understanding is the simplest way I can describe my experience with Green Creamation Texas as they guided me kindly through the process during my grief. They answered all my questions and never made me feel pressured or rushed.Nicole SNicole S ★★★★★ I really feel from beginning to end Green Cremation did an exceptional job handling my sister's needs. From the first time I called and asked about their services because I was in another city than that which my sister passed, I knew they were the one I wanted to use. They handled all things from picking up my sister to handling the services we requested in a timely and professional manner. Was walked through the whole process. It felt like they held my hand and gave the comfort I needed through out and answered all questions. I would totally recommend them to anyone needing their services, plus I felt they were very affordableMarchelle W.Marchelle W. ★★★★★ Never thought I would be writing a review for my Father's services, but I have to say that Green Cremation Texas was very empathetic and caring for our time, emotions and provided the best care for my late dad. They kept the line of communication open and honest, which I appreciated. They answered all my questions with detail and outlined their processes from start to finish. My dad was returned to us with protection and care by the staff. Thank you for making sure my dad's wishes were fulfilled!Kelly S.Kelly S. ★★★★★ Green Cremation Texas handled everything respectfully and professionally. I will recommend them.Maria Del R.Maria Del R. ★★★★★ Thank you to Green Cremations for making the entire process easy. I liked the fact that everything was done online and I didn’t have to go in and make arrangements in person because it’s something so difficult to do during a time of loss. However, this doesn’t mean that the process is impersonal, that there is no one to help. You can send a text directly from the website, which I did and Marlaena replied right away and took care of everything. Thank you, Marlaena, for making this part easy, when there is nothing easy about losing a loved one.Pollyanna A.Pollyanna A. ★★★★★ My wife’s mother died a few weeks ago after being under the care of Hospice, she was 96 1/2. I have given Green Cremation 5 stars because they deserve it. They were caring,empathetic and reasonably priced, in a business that is known for taking $ advantage of people in their time of loss. Marlaena was exceptional. Her calm and respectful demeanor was comforting while helping us navigate the final resting state of my Mother in Law. Very knowledgeable and kind.Mr G.Mr G. ★★★★★ Great company to work with during a difficult time. Everything was straight forward and easy to completely.

During such a stressful time it was a BIG deal that I could do everything by phone and online. It was one less thing I had to worry about.

Thank you, all, and pet your sweet Therapy Dog Kermit for me.Pinky R.Pinky R. ★★★★★ Melissa was very easy to work with, very helpful, and understanding of our wishes. She helped make Momma’s celebration of life the way Momma wanted it. THANKS!HueRTaCuLTuRe C.HueRTaCuLTuRe C. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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 “brain 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. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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. I'm so glad i found Melissa and her services.Melissa C.Melissa C. ★★★★★ My daughter died VERY unexpectedly at 24 years old.

Water Cremation

Water Cremation in Garland

Families that are looking for the greenest cremation option will want to consider water cremation, also known as aquamation or alkali hydrolysis.

The process uses a pressurized chamber filled with a water/alkali solution that’s heated to decompose the body. In the end, the results are the same for the family, but 90% less energy is used.
