Green Cremation was so amazing during such a hard time for my family. The way they handled my grandmother with such dignity and respect was... so appreciated by our family. I would recommend anyone that unfortunately had to face losing a loved one to use Green Cremation. To know that it is one of the most eco friendly cremations and the choices they provide for your loved ones remains. I received a scatter tube covered is my grandmothers favorite flower…..Beautiful Roses, but I also will be planting two trees, and they even provided seeds to plant wildflowers in her memory. Although it was a very hard decision to make, Green Cremation provided the most amazing support. I am forever grateful to Marlaena and others ❤️read more

After reading numerous positive reviews about Green Cremation Texas, I chose to reach out to them and make all the necessary arrangements... for my mother who recently passed from Alzheimer's. It turned out to be the perfect choice.I had phone conversations with Marlaena many times and she answered my numerous questions with such kindness, patience and compassion. The way she spoke to me always had a very calming effect and being as stressed and sad as I was, that was exactly what I needed. Marlaena walked me through the process in a way that simplified things. Giving her information about my mom over the phone and filling out a few online forms was really quite easy.Also, I must give recognition to Ron and Samantha, the two Green Cremation Texas employees who did the pickup and transport of my mother's body. They were so kind and respectful in the way they talked with me and my brother, answering various questions we had. Not once did we feel rushed. Before she was transported, we got to say our final goodbyes to our mom.Green Cremation Texas has my absolute highest recommendation. They came through in every possible way for our mom and our family. Kindness, compassion, respect and thoughtfulness... during a very difficult time of loss, Green Cremation Texas will come through for you.read more

It is hard to lose a loved one. This year I lost 2. My dad in April and immediately there after, my mom, on Mothers Day. My dad had... pre-arranged all his plans. My mom, living in a nursing home, had not and I, being the only child remaining, ( my brother died years ago) was tasked with handling all the finals involved. She had already indicated to me she wanted to be cremated so I knew that much and nothing more. Mainly because I hadn’t seen it coming so I was unprepared. I couldn’t afford the conventional funeral home where she was transported so I had to get my search on while also being in a dazed and shocked state of mind. I hope this little explanation sets up the scene of understanding what I was going through. I hadn’t even gotten to the mourning point for losing dad and now mom? Whoa. Anyway I started calling around and thought I had discovered the people and company I would use but it turned out they were more concerned about getting as much money as they could before hand with their fakery sad voice which turned to anger when I said they wouldn’t be getting her insurance policy up front. Not to mention it was a debilitating small amount. It was just a burial plan. Their attitude scares me to say the least. So back to drawing board I had to go all the while stressing out that mom was laying in a lonely cold freezer draw somewhere. (That is a weird type of stress.) I googled the same sentence I had used before and scrolled the listings of “Cremation Co’s.” I can’t say how long I was staring at the page when I realized I wasn’t even reading just blank staring when a word caught my eye. The word was GREEN. I honed in that for some odd reason. GREEN CREMATIONS TEXAS. The next thing which caught my eye was, Call or TXT now. I clicked and was absolutely fascinated. The whole premise of this company is relaxing, inviting, easy and somehow comforting. A “green” cremation is just that. Environmentally friendly. It is also emotionally friendly. I can’t explain it but I just knew it had to be GreenCremationsTexas. Spiritually speaking it just makes sense. So I texted. And met Eric and Marlaena. I cannot tell you the depth of their true goodness. In the world we live in today we do things differently. We txt instead of call. We do our research first, read reviews and such but I can’t tell you how amazing it was to do business with GCT. No hassles. No hidden agenda. No slimy attempts to extract as much $$$ as possible. And most importantly no fakery. During a time of grieving you need simple, straightforward steps. And you will find it with GCT. Each and every step was modern and SO user friendly! What you are quoted is what you pay. No joke. Eric and Marlaena took care of everything. EVERYTHING. With all the grace, respect and condolences of a family. They are beautiful. All handled by phone calls or txting all arrangements done through email and online. Plain, simple and truly stress free. Which means a whole lot when you are going through it. Then to top it off you don’t have to drive anywhere to pick up anything, it is all done discreetly through the mail. Green Cremations Texas is beautiful. It feels right. It was an honor and a blessing to be served by Marlaena and the team. They are a true blessing to all the communities they serve. The process they have captured reflects the world we live in today and they do it with such finesse! Somehow they are able to take your hand and help you like a loving family member and that is how I feel about them.read more

When our son died in Austin his body was taken to the city morgue. We flew in 2 days later and got a hotel room so we could close out his... apartment. We searched the web and found Green Cremation. They were great. We were able to handle the whole process, from choosing what we wanted to signing the legal documents to paying for the cremation, on a cell phone in our hotel room. We really appreciate the ease with which we were able take care of everything due to the great people at Green Cremation.read more

Thank you to Green Cremations for making the entire process easy. I liked the fact that everything was done online and I didn’t have to go... in and make arrangements in person because it’s something so difficult to do during a time of loss. However, this doesn’t mean that the process is impersonal, that there is no one to help. You can send a text directly from the website, which I did and Marlaena replied right away and took care of everything. Thank you, Marlaena, for making this part easy, when there is nothing easy about losing a loved one.read more

My wife’s mother died a few weeks ago after being under the care of Hospice, she was 96 1/2. I have given Green Cremation 5 stars because... they deserve it. They were caring,empathetic and reasonably priced, in a business that is known for taking $ advantage of people in their time of loss. Marlaena was exceptional. Her calm and respectful demeanor was comforting while helping us navigate the final resting state of my Mother in Law. Very knowledgeable and kind.read more

When my son died in Austin, TX, we were very distraught. We live in PA and did not have any idea who to contact to care for him. My... daughter found Green Cremation on the internet. We liked the way they perform the process, so we went with them. Everything was so easy for us. We had a contact with Green Cremation and everything was done on line. Every contact person at Green Cremation was so very kind. They truly treated me with the understanding of the grief I was experiencing. They kept me updated, gave me good recommendations for what I needed to do and kept in touch with me very often. They shipped my son's ashes to me. With all of the travel to Texas and settling his affairs, having Green Cremation in charge of his remains really was a godsend. I highly recommend Green Cremation.

Losing a family member is so very difficult. Finding how to care for their remains shouldn't be.

From the very start, Eric Neuhaus made us feel less stressed, confident, and comfortable with our decision in choosing Green Cremation. Their entire process is SUPER easy and done completely online. Green Cremation's price list is very straightforward, their prices are reasonable and, most importantly, there are no hidden fees or charges. Eric and his team communicate with you throughout the entire process and are always available to answer any questions. I never once felt like I was being a nuisance and they were always very sensitive to our family's pain. I've told my family that Green Cremation is the only place I feel comfortable handling my remains when the Good Lord calls me home.read more

During such a depressing and emotional time in my life, Green Cremation was the least stressful part of laying my Father to rest. I had... zero experience with losing an immediate family member and had no clue how the cremation process worked. Eric of Green Cremation was compassionate, professional and patient with the long list of questions I had. His team provided frequent status updates and their online platform for selecting the cremation options, urn type, death certificates, delivery method of ashes etc. is very easy even if you are not tech saavy. Eric even personally delivered my Father's ashes to my Mother's house, took the time to explain in detail all the documents I was receiving and encouraged me to talk through the emotions I was feeling upon receiving the urn. He is truly an Angel.I have already recommended Green Cremation to two friends that unfortunately had family members pass away recently and will continue to recommend their services any chance I get. Thank you so very, very much Green Cremation for all you do.read more

Recently my elderly mother passed away at rehab center. Thru one of our church members’ recommendation we turned to Green Cremation for... handling my mother’s cremation. We had such a peace of mind leading by your organization throughout the whole process from picking up my mother’s remain to refrigerated location, selection of the cremation method, and clearly itemized charges and finally delivered the ashes in the urn we chose. Your staffs’ courteous attitude, caring of family’s emotions made us feel that you’re part of the family. We appreciated very much. I’m sure my mother will rest peace in heaven. I would be no hesitation to refer you to our friends for future services.read more

My father was put on hospice care 2 weeks ago. I called several funeral homes to get pricing on a direct cremation. Initially, my family... wanted to go with Green because of the price, but when we called back to confirm everything, suddenly there were extra fees. Over $200 more if he weighed over 200 pounds (he was 206 pounds) another $250 if he died in his house, which was NOT initially disclosed. How can you say youre transparent if youre suprising people with extra charges? On top of that, my brother drove by the facility and it's literally in a storage building. DO YOUR RESEARCH! SO GLAD WE DID OURS!read more

There was not a single burp anywhere in the process.Our family had a lot to deal with and it was great that the cremation, death certificate, obtaining the ashes, etc were all so easy to do via Greens.

I was extremely distraught when my brother passed away. Eric was there for me every step of the way. The entire process took longer than... expected due to Covid and the unexpected freeze. Eric was very kind and compassionate even when I wasn’t. I had to choose a funeral home in Austin from Louisiana on the spur of the moment and I chose a different one. After doing some research I called Green Cremation and they moved my brother immediately. The cost was much better, too. He walked me through the online process and answered all of my calls. I highly recommend Green Cremation due to my experience with them during this very sad time.read more

Our daughter passed away, very unexpectedly 12/2/20. Eric Neuhaus with Green Cremation is who helped us from start to finish during this... incredibly difficult time. He was very professional, compassionate and patient with us throughout the whole process of getting things taken care of for our daughter. She lived in Austin TX and we live near Waco TX, so all of the planning was done via telephone or online. Their processes were very easy and Eric made himself available to us anytime we had questions or concerns. We were disappointed with the fact that we had to pick up her ashes and personal belongings "curbside" due to Covid19 restrictions, it was very impersonal, but beyond Eric's and Green's control. The reason for 4 stars and not 5 is I purchased 3 locks of her hair at $50 ea. Per their website, it showed that they would each come in a nice glass tubular container and each lock would be tied with a small ribbon...this was not how I received them..the locks of hair were tied with a white string and each lock was in a small cardboard box---I contacted Eric and expressed how disappointed I was and he refunded the cost ($150) no questions asked. Thank you Eric for your all of your help, kindness and compassion during this extremely difficult time for our family.read more

He quickly came back and said his guy was on the way to get my mom's body. We are an hour away, he got here very quickly. Dan was warm, caring and carefully thorough in attending to every detail. Eric kept in touch with me by email and phone every step of the way. He even made picking up her ashes easier. This company is so impressive, so caring.

I keep trying to write this review and I’m at a loss for words. Death takes the life out of everything around it, not just your loved one,... and feeling “brain dead” while trying to plan how to take care of mom for the last time, it just feels like too much! Melissa has been the most present, patient, and intuitive funeral director I’ve ever met in a way that was organic and full of warmth. She let me be as involved in the process as I wanted to be even taking as much time needed to explain all my questions about the logistics and paperwork. It never felt like I was separated by some door and secrecy. I recommend Green Cremation Texas because they weren’t just a funeral home, they became my tribe. For the first time in my experience with death, I didn’t just get a funeral home that helped facilitate closer, I was given an experience that planted the seeds of healing. Thank you.read more

On May 19th, I had gotten a call from my sister in law telling me to fly immediately to Orlando (I am away for work). Halifax Health... Hospice had let her know that my father was going to be passing soon and it was imperative that I fly in immediately - she wanted to contact me before hospice called me. We flew out that sameday to see my dad. My father passed away on Thursday May 23rd at 11:59 pm.

I have known about Melissa Unfred and her advocacy for a while. I wanted Melissa Unfred to be handling my father's post mortem care because she is translucent about her services, she is professional, and she went above and beyond to ensure that my father had the best possible treatment - that he had a dignified death.

My father was located in Deltona, Florida and she is in Austin, Texas - but that was of no concern to Melissa; she helped me even though she was out of state (I was located in Florida) and in a different time zone - she worked with my family and I on 24 hour call - all hours of the morning (especially since my father passed away so late in the evening).

She never upsold me on services that weren't needed and was very upfront about the costs. A lot of traditional funeral homes seem to take advantage of grief (trust me we did our research on pricing) during this time, Melissa did not. She treated my family and myself with dignity during this difficult time.

My family and I chose to have my father water cremated and I am eternally grateful that Melissa provides this service and orchestrated everything with timing and precision.

Her professionalism and courtesy are exemplary - I cannot express how she went above and beyond to ensure that communication was clear and precise. It is remarkable in this day and age that this service exists.
