Resomation is considered by some to be the new ecologically friendly alternative to burial or cremation. The body is broken down into it's component parts by soaking it in a water based alkali solution. Unlike cremation it does not put pollutants such as mercury in the air. The process only takes a few hours.
When resomation is selected, services can be held the same as with any other type of funeral. A small amount of white ash will be returned to the family. It can be treated in the same manner as you woudl the remains from a cremation.
