Aquamation – sometimes called water cremation, flameless cremation, or alkaline hydrolysis – is legal as a human funerary process in four Canadian provinces and one territory with legislation being considered or requested  by public lobby efforts in some provinces. In the US, aquamation is legal in more than 20 states. (See also state by state aquamation legal status.)
