How It Works

The most simple way to arrange a direct cremation

STEP 1 - Call our dedicated Care Team or make the arrangements online.

Whether making the arrangements over the phone or online, the process is the same:

  • 1: We provide you with an instant quote based on your requirements
  • 2: You make a secure payment by credit card
  • 3: We make arrangements with you to bring your loved one into our care
  • 4: You provide us with information about your loved one and sign the legal paperwork online.

Step 2 - We collect your loved one from their place of passing.

We look after them in a climate controlled environment and carefully prepare their body for cremation.


Step 3 - We register the death and obtain certified copies of the death certificate on your behalf.

We register the death in the county where your loved one passed away and apply for a cremation permit from the state. We also obtain certified copies of the death certificate on your behalf. These are required by banks, government agencies, insurance companies, former employers and other organizations.

Step 4 - We return your loved one’s ashes to any US postal address

We place your loved one’s ashes in a simple container and return them to any US postal address by fully trackable USPS Priority Mail Express. You can also choose to have your loved one’s ashes hand-delivered to you by one of our trusted team members.

The end-to-end cremation process typically takes 2 weeks.
Death certificates can take longer, depending on the local health department.


How It Works:

Cremated remains are placed inside of a biodegradable urn along with a soil mixture, which helps the cremated remains produce a balanced growing environment. A tree sapling of your choice is then placed inside the urn before being buried in the ground.
