Fire-Based Cremation

This type of cremation uses flame and heat to reduce the body to bone fragments, otherwise known as cremated remains. This process is completed with a machine called a cremator. Flame based cremation is the most common type of cremation available. It is available in all 50 states and U.S. territories.

Water-Based Cremation Services

This type of cremation uses a water-based process to reduce the body to bone fragments with water, alkaline chemicals, heat, agitation, and pressure to accelerate the natural decomposition process. The bone fragments are more specifically referred to as hydrolyzed remains but you can still call them cremated remains. Water-based cremation uses one-seventh of the energy it takes to complete a flame-based cremation. It is currently available in 21 states and is under consideration in other states.
