Aquamation: A Better Alternative for After-Life Care
Endswell is the first water-based cremation facility in Central North Carolina. Water cremation, also known as Aquamation, is a simpler, gentler, and more environmentally friendly option that avoids greenhouse gas emissions and consumes only a fraction of the energy as flame cremation. Bodies are cremated in a gentle alkaline solution that accelerates the natural decomposition process and returns the body to its elemental form. After the cycle is complete, bone mineral remains are returned to the family.
Communities across North Carolina are running out of space in local cemeteries; and flame cremation releases toxic compounds and greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. We offer a new way that benefits us all. Endswell is committed to caring for the environment and the well-being of our community. By providing water cremation, we honor this commitment to future generations.
At Endswell, we are reimagining the traditional funeral home and introducing people to an alternative option that is cleaner, more practical, and heart-centered. Through our eco-friendly aquamation and person-to-person care, we provide genuine support to families during life’s most difficult transition.
“We were so pleased with the services and support our family received from Endswell. Hunter is kind and compassionate and handled the remains of our father with great care. The urns curated in the gallery are beautiful works of art and the perfect vessels to hold the remains of a loved one. I would highly recommend Endswell.”
“I cannot express how grateful I am to Hunter and Endswell Aquamation for the patient, sympathetic, and graceful handling of my husband’s arrangements. Living out of state, there were some complications that had to be handled and Hunter took care of everything. It was a relief knowing my loved one was being cared for as he wished. In a time of stress and grief, Hunter was a constant calming presence that allowed me and my family to concentrate on each other.”

“My husband decided on water cremation because it’s so much better for the environment than flame cremation or traditional burial. Just before he died, I contacted Endswell Water Cremation and met owner Hunter Beattie. Throughout the process, Hunter anticipated our needs and made the entire experience easier. He remained compassionate and kind, even as our family made changes. Not only was his service exceptional, but his urn gallery is something to behold. It’s filled with urns of pottery, glass, wood, wool and other materials, some of which can even decorate the wall, all made by local artisans. In short, I am very pleased with Endswell Water Cremation and recommend them without reservation.”
