Burial With Cremation
Cremated remains may be placed in a ground interment space inside a cremation vault or biodegradable urn and buried in a cemetery plot just like a traditional burial.
Urns come in many different shapes, sizes, materials, colors, and finishes. We offer a small selection of urns to choose from in our office, but recommend that families may also wish to shop to find the best urn to suit their needs and wishes.
Often when people are first choosing cremation they do not think about Permanent Memorialization, especially if they are planning to scatter their ashes somewhere in nature. However, memorialization can create a place for family and friends to visit, honor and remember their loved ones. A final resting place for cremated remains can be provided by various means. The family may choose from an urn for permanent containment of the cremated remains or choose from many options within the cemetery for a final resting place. Cremated remains may be buried and memorialized in a land space, a mausoleum, or a columbarium niche. Niches are recessed and memorialized compartments enclosed by marble or glass to protect the engraved or ornate urn.
