For decades, most people arranging a funeral have faced a simple choice – burial or cremation?

But in parts of the US and Canada a third option is now available – dissolving bodies in an alkaline solution. It will arrive in the UK soon.

Its technical name is alkaline hydrolysis, but it is being marketed as “green cremation”… More at the BBC.

It’s a difficult subject to ever talk about and the title sounds awful, but it makes a lot of sense.
