Cremation Choices

If the body is cremated ...

1. The remains can be stored by the family — and perhaps kept on display — in an urn or other container.

2. You may take the remains in the simple plastic container supplied by the crematory and distribute ("scatter") them in or over an appropriate location.

3. The remains can be placed in a niche within a columbarium.

4. The remains can be buried in the ground in a regular plot or in a smaller cremation plot.

5. The remains can be entombed in a crypt within a mausoleum.

Why people choose cremation

Here are some other reasons you might choose cremation:

Cremation is traditional in your family, religious group, or geographical area

You prefer the body to be returned quickly and cleanly to the elements

Many people believe that a cremated body becomes one with nature more quickly.

You have environmental concerns

Perhaps you are worried about the use of valuable land for cemetery space, or believe it is wrong to fill the ground with materials that won't erode ... metal coffins and concrete vaults.

You want to keep the costs down

Selecting cremation does not mean, however, that you will have an inexpensive funeral.

You might still choose a casket and/or a viewing, and/or decide to have the cremated remains buried in the ground or placed in a columbarium. These choices can bring your costs up to those of a traditional funeral.

 

 

The options are available to have the type of service you choose.
