Cremation Solutions Guide

There are several good ways to provide your loved one’s cremated remains with a permanent resting place, understanding the options can help you make informed choices.

After a loved one is cremated, you may wish to keep the cremated remains in an urn, perhaps displayed somewhere in your home for a few weeks. This can be a meaningful way of keeping memories of your loved one close at hand during the grieving process.

Sooner or later, though, most families want their deceased loved one to have a permanent resting place—a place where loved ones can go in order to privately pay their respects. One of the simplest options for giving your loved one that permanent home is to bury the cremated remains.

One way you can do this is to ask our staff about acquiring a space in the urn garden. More and more cemeteries now have urn gardens, full of small, landscaped plots where urns can be kept on a permanent basis.

An alternative to the urn garden is burying cremated remains in a standard cemetery plot. One of the advantages here is that, because an urn is considerably smaller than a casket, many cemeteries will allow multiple family members to be buried in the same plot. This provides an efficient way to have a family burial area.

In addition to burial, there are other options for providing cremated remains with a permanent home. One of the most common is interring the cremated remains in a columbarium—that is, an above-ground building where cremated remains can be placed and memorialized. A columbarium has a number of small spaces—niches—that are each large enough for one urn to be placed. You can also buy a group of niches clustered together if multiple family members wish to be memorialized in close proximity.
