  • Is there a facility for a committal service at Pure Reflections?
    Yes, at our Pure Reflection Resomarium, relatives and friends can say their last goodbye before the resomation. Our chapel can be used for the final committal.
  • How do you track my loved ones remains?
    A Digital ID tag is assigned to your loved one once they arrive at our facility. Each ID Tag has a unique reference number (URN) and also all the details about the person. This ID Tag accompanies the body throughout the resomation process so you can be 100% confident that the right remains will be returned to you. In addition, all of your loved ones details are logged directy into the resomation machine, the macine will not commence the proces until this step is complete.
  • How is my loved one being cared for at the resomarium?
    Our professional staff will handle your loved one with the greatest respect and care, from receiving them at the resomarium and throughout the resomation process itself.
  • Does the coffin go inside the resomator?
    No, the gentle resomation process does not break down the wooden coffin.
  • What Happens to the Coffin?
    Every family has a choice in how they would like the coffin to be handled. They can choose to recycle, donate or keep the coffin. If the family choose to recycle the coffin, it will be re-purposed into presentation boxes for our urns and given back to the family. This is in keeping with our eco friendly and sustainable ethos at Pure Reflections.
  • Why Should I Choose Water Cremation?
    There are many reasons to choose water cremation. The main attraction is leaving this earth in a sustainable fashion for the sake of future generations. Water is also a more gentle option than the conventional methods currently on offer.
  • Why Is Water Cremation Considered Natural?
    Water Cremation (alkaline hydrolysis) mimics the natural way a body breaks down with burial but simply accelerates the process. A water cremation cycle takes about three to four hours. In a cemetery this may take decades, depending on the conditions and many other factors.
  • What happens to the liquid by-product after the water cremation process?
    After the water cremation process, the liquid by-product undergoes a rigorous treatment to ensure environmental safety. We have implemented advanced filtration and purification systems, ensuring that the water released post-resomation undergoes multiple levels of treatment to meet and exceed all regulatory requirements. This water is not released directly into the wastewater treatment system as commonly described. Instead, we adhere to the most stringent guidelines for ecological preservation, guaranteeing that the final water product is free from any contaminants before being reintroduced back into the ecosystem.
  • Why is Water Cremation a Sustainable Choice?
    Burial is considered the least environmentally friendly choice, partly because of its land consumption but also due to its single use of a coffin and resulting groundwater pollution. Cremation with fire also typically involves a single-use coffin, emits CO2 and toxic fumes like mercury into the atmosphere and is energy intensive. Water Cremation, by contrast, uses one-tenth of the energy needed for flame-based cremation, it does not pollute our groundwater and has zero emissions. Only 100% biodegradable material can be used in resomation, you don’t need a coffin. If you do want a coffin for a viewing or ceremony, you can opt for a rental coffin or our unique presentation base, ensuring no valuable materials go to waste.
  • Are The Remains Ashes?
    The remains you receive from resomation are a flour-like powder. Like cremation, they consist of granulated bones but unlike cremation, there is no coffin matter present, purely bones. The remains are returned to you in an urn of your choice.
