Frequently Asked Questions

It is our mission to make the death care process as straightforward and as gentle as possible.

I’m moving. Do I need to update any of my legal documents?

While your Precompose membership will remain valid, you will need to do additional preplanning with a local funeral home who will help coordinate shipping your body to the nearest Recompose location. You will need to update the forms you have on file with us. The local funeral home you choose will have their own costs for this service. You can instead choose to cancel your Precompose membership if you do not wish to plan with a local funeral home in your new state.

Land Acknowledgement
Recompose acknowledges we make our lives and livelihoods on the lands of the Coast Salish People, specifically the Duwamish People. We honor with gratitude the Duwamish People past and present, the land itself, and the Duwamish Tribe. Colonization is an active, persistent process. Indigenous communities continue to be resilient in protecting their ecological and cultural lifeways and deathways despite ongoing oppression. Recompose respects, shares, and supports this commitment to climate healing and environmental justice. Join Recompose in contributing to Real Rent Duwamish.
