Closest Funeral Home to Tahoma National Cemetery
Alkaline Hydrolysis (aka Water Cremation) is an environmentally friendly method of final disposition that is available for our 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.
*Price includes basic services of funeral director and staff; transfer of remains to funeral home; refrigeration (up to 5 days); and Alkaline-Hydrolysis fee.
Natural Organic Reduction (aka Terramation) utilizes the body’s own naturally occurring microbes to gently transform remains into nutrient rich soil. The process is conducted in individual pods and takes about 60 days to complete. The resulting soil can then be returned home to be planted with a memorial tree or donated to forestry or other similar nature rejuvenation projects.
