EVERMORE offers an alternative to flame-based cremation commonly referred to as gentle water cremation or aquamation.  Like cremation, remains much like ashes can be returned to pet families in an urn as a keepsake, or to return to nature by scattering, burial, or planting a memorial tree.  

Gentle water cremation is an environmentally-friendly, gentle alternative to flame-based cremation that accelerates the natural breakdown of the body's physical components.  Gentle water cremation generally occurs over the course of 20 hours.  During this time, a combination of 95% warm water and 5% alkali gently flows over the body.

Like traditional flame-based cremation, gentle water cremation is available in the following service types: communal, individual, and private.
