ABOUT US

While arranging end of life plans and navigating the world of after life choices, we learned there are many green options that are not widely available in the Midwest or the Chicagoland area.  Out of a desire to promote and expand eco-friendly choices for everyone, Cremation by Water was formed.

We transformed an ordinary space into a modern, state-of-the-art, flameless crematory where families can comfortably remain connected to each step of their loved one's after life journey.
