Harbour, the UK’s first dedicated Water Cremation Facility.

What do you want to leave behind?

What is water cremation?

Water cremation uses water and an alkali to return a person to their chemical components - given we are made up of 60% water, it seems a fitting end.

All that remains are ashes, just like a traditional flame cremation but without the environmental damage.

Our environmentally conscious water cremation centre

Leading the way in green farewells

We are constructing a state of the art building for Britain’s first dedicated water cremation centre.

Set in a quiet, scenic location that provides a peaceful setting, our facility will be built using modern techniques to ensure a small carbon footprint and a beneficial impact on the local wildlife and environment. The building will be powered by clean, renewable energy and its by-products will be recovered on site through natural processes.

No air pollution or mercury emissions
