Cremation, Casket Burial or Entombment

For most people, deciding on a final resting place is the biggest decision of the funeral-planning process. The first step towards making that decision is to determine whether you prefer to be cremated or not.

Cremation

  • Cremation is a high-temperature process that transforms the deceased into ashes, removing all carbon content from the body. The ashes are then placed inside an urn or temporary container.
  • Some choose to scatter the ashes or bury them in a sacred place. Others prefer to place the urn in a niche inside a cemetery, or to have the ashes entombed in a mausoleum crypt.
  • A popular choice, cremation allows for much more flexibility, as the ashes are easily transportable and have little environmental impact.

Casket Burial or Entombment

  • Burial or entombment requires the purchase of a specific plot or crypt for the deceased to rest. Likewise, the body must be stored inside an appropriate casket.
  • A burial plot can accommodate a larger memorial and typically provides space for garden plantings.
  • Crypts also provide larger memorial space for personalization and are a suitable alternative to casket burial for those who prefer to be above ground.
