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

GXCTx contacted SSA & received a timely letter from them regarding changes. Each person I dealt with was very professional, respectful, reassuring, & courteous. Thank you, GCTxread 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

There aren't enough words to show our appreciation for Eric and Sara and how extraordinarily helpful and forthcoming they were during the... entire funerary process. They were absolutely amazing, and my mom and I would have been lost without their guidance and patience when handling the sheer complexity surrounding my late father's death. My family is forever grateful for their services and for the gracious people at Green Cremation. It is without reservation that we highly recommend them for their compassion, professionalism, and knowledge in caring for your loved ones' needs.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

Recently our family experienced a death and we contacted Green Cremation Texas, the Pflugerville branch. Eric was our point of contact. He... was the consummate professional. Everything, including full costs, were disclosed on the front end. All arrangements were easy to make and they did exactly what they said they would do when they said they would do it. 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. Eric did a superb job and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs their services. Their pricing is quite reasonable and their service and caring attitude can't be beat.read more

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

I called the number Eric gave me and to my surprise at 11:15pm, he answered! After a brief conversation, he asked me to hold the line. 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 highly recommend them to anyone having to go through this. They deserve more than 5 stars.Thank you Green Cremations, you are the best!read more

I can not express my gratitude to Green Cremation. Eric and Melissa, worked meticulously to honor our wishes for the last rites rituals for... my nephew. They went above and beyond their call of duty, with timely communications and up-to date information regarding paperwork and flow of actions associated with cremation of our loved one. Even with delivery of his ashes to us followed by a personal phone call about our well being literally was beyond humane. During these trying times with restrictions in place and an unfortunate heartache due to loss of a young life, could not be handled any better. We are thankful, grateful and feel blessed. Additionally, even though it is a business they are in, but payment was never an issue, and charges are much bearable than other available choices.We wish them continued success with their healing.read more

Before my father passed, he said for me to look into other places that may be more affordable. That is how I came across Green Cremation in... my search. I didn't know that funeral services could also be environmentally conscious. I gave a call to Melissa in the late evening to speak with her of their services. She was very nice and understanding and said to call her back with any further questions. After doing a few more calls to other funeral homes, I came right back to Green Cremation. Having my father pass was hard enough and Melissa, Kermit, and her team did an excellent job in ensuring that the paperwork and taking care of my father did not add any further stress. The most touching was sending Dan to pick-up my father's body at the hospital. Seton Hospital did a Veteran Salute and Dan turned out to be a veteran of the US Air Force. A veteran escorting and caring for a fallen veteran....If you want honest, affordable and caring people to take care of your loved ones, I highly recommend Melissa Unfred and Green Cremation.read more

My husband's sudden death was the worst day of my life so far. My sons and I had no idea how to handle his arrangements following his... passing. After checking on-line for recommendations, my son Mark called Green Cremation Texas, and we talked to Melissa from the company. She was kind, compassionate, and made the decision easier for us. She was available 24/7 by text, and returned texts and phone calls promptly. In addition, I was able to review documents and sign everything electronically, which was very helpful. I highly recommend this company.read more

My baby wasn't supposed to die. I wasn't supposed to be faced with choosing a funeral home for my firstborn at age 35. Yet... here I... was.We used google from my bed in the hospital, and my husband began the arduous task of reaching out to a few funeral homes for information. After a few calls, he seemed to struggle and took a break... he stated they felt cold on the phone, and emulated false empathy. Then, in that next round of calls, Melissa answered. From that first moment to the morning she brought the tiny Glass Orb containing our beautiful baby's cremated remains home was like dealing with a friend we had known for years. She even surprised us and had taken a casting of our darling's tiny foot... my husband often cradles it to his cheek when our heart's are aching.Thank you Melissa, Kermit (they have a therapy dog, he is the most soulful lovebug!), and Green Cremation Texas for being who we needed at the most heartbreaking times of our lives.read more

We were given a list of funeral homes by hospice from the Funeral Consumers Alliance. Green Cremation Texas was not the lowest priced, nor... were they the highest- but after our experience with them, we would have gladly paid 4xs more for the service and security we received. Communication was excellent, and this literally could not have been an easier process during a troubling time.read more

This was the absolute best experience at the absolute worst time in my life. I lost my mom last week and reached out to Texas Green... Cremations. I can’t possibly express what an amazing experience this was. So compassionate, professional and reasonably priced. Melissa took such good care of all the details. I can fully recommend them and will be prearranging for my husband and myself. Our local funeral home was going to cost over $3000.00 and we took care of everything for under $1000.00. Call them, you will not be sorry.read more

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

Was very flexible with our timeline, and very thorough with the details and communicating with the funeral home. I couldn’t recommend these folks enough. She even checked in with us after the entire process was over and made sure everything went smoothly.We’re so glad we found Green Cremation Texas. I don’t know what we would have done otherwise. Thanks Melissa.read more

My daughter died VERY unexpectedly at 24 years old. So there i was trying to figure out what the heck just happened and the medical... examiner wants to know if I've picked a funeral home yet. All i knew was that my daughter loved the environment so i started with Google and it led me to Melissa. I cannot stress enough how WONDERFUL this woman is. When i called her all my thoughts were a mess inside my head. I cried and rambled on about my daughter and about what i thought she would like and Melissa LISTENED to me. She then helped me with what i wanted to do for my daughter. She wasn't fazed at all when i wanted to change something, she just made it happen. Melissa always answered any questions i had either by texting me back or emailing me. I'm so glad i found Melissa and her services.read more

My family will be using her services from now on. Thank you, Melissa!!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.
