Parting Stone

A Clean Alternative to Cremated Remains.

Solidified remains are a complete alternative to cremated remains that allow you to live comfortably with your loved one. The solidification process compresses conventional cremated remains into a beautiful collection of 40-80+ “stones” that you can hold, share, scatter, and travel with.

The appearance of each collection of solidified remains is 100% natural. People can result in different hues and textures making each set unique. Parting Stone empowers families in their grief by providing a form of remains that can be touched and held.

Frequently Asked Questions

For People

What are solidified remains?

Solidified remains are a new form of human and pet remains. Instead of receiving cremated remains following cremation, you can now receive "stones." We can also solidify cremated remains that you are currently living with.

For Pets

*Southland Funeral Chapel DOES NOT OFFER cremation for pets. Cremation for pets must be arranged through your local veterinarian or private pet facility.
How many "stones" is an average dog?

The average dog is 5-40 stones. The exact number of stones returned depends on the volume of remains provided. A good rule of thumb is that we will return a similar volume of solidified remains’ stones as the volume of ashes that we receive. In other words, 1 quart of ashes will return about 1 quart of stones.
