A brief video about The Natural Funeral

We are an independent, Colorado funeral home dedicated to providing exquisite, holistic and personalized care. Watch this short video for a glimpse of The Natural Funeral. We offer green burial, cremation and Reverent Body CareTM.

NEWS. The Natural Funeral now offers Water Cremation (also known as alkaline hydrolysis). It’s available to all our clients in Boulder county and beyond. The process uses water and alkaline compounds to create a sterile, nutrient-rich liquid that serves as a super fertilizer. You can receive or donate this bio-nutrient Water Cremation really does allow you to “become a tree” because this most precious of fertilizers is an incredibly powerful biostimulant to support plant growth.

You also receive back “cremains” (the bone fragments) which is also what you receive after a conventional flame cremation. These cremains can be buried or scattered.

Our first water cremation client in Boulder county told us, “I just want to be compost.” That was before she knew anything about alkaline hydrolysis. Clearly green burial is an efficient and simple way to return our remains to the earth. But some of us are no longer wedded to the idea of having a burial plot that future generations will visit and do not want to take up any space.

Water cremation is a way to accomplish the same natural process of decomposition, where we benefit the land and all life. But it takes much less time for that to happen, hours rather than years.

If you would like to know more about water cremation, call or email us for an appointment.
