Respectful Service Planning at Every Stage

Green Cremation Texas is here for you and your family at every stage. We’re equipped to provide services quickly when the unexpected occurs or advance planning for those who want complete control over the arrangements.

Our Mission

The mission of Green Cremation Texas is to empower families through the thoughtful adoption of technology and innovation, while reducing the stress and environmental impact brought on by traditional funeral practices. We do this through empathetic support coupled with an unique approach to cremation.

We are Texas’s only carbon-neutral funeral home; we use no paper and utilize only recycled material during the cremation process. Intently focused on providing a high level of care throughout your time with us, we aim to return control over the end of life process back to you and your family.

We are a fully-licensed funeral home with nearly 20 years of experience. Melissa, our licensed funeral director, is a proud supporter of both the National Home Funeral Alliance and the Funeral Consumers Alliance.
