Cremation is now becoming a very popular option instead of a burial. Families feel that it is a good way to lay to rest of the remains of the decedent with dignity and respect. Once a person has been cremated, it isn’t very difficult to find a final resting place for your loved one. Some of the options include:
- Burying the ashes- You can bury the urn, which contains the ashes either in the local cemetery or in your backyard. This gives you access to paying your respects to the departed soul when you feel like.
- Display the ashes– Many families place the urn containing the ashes in some place in their home. This allows the family members the chance to feel close to their loved one that is no more.
- Scattering the ashes- This is another common way of disposing of ashes after a funeral. You can scatter these in open spaces on your property, in the sea, lakes, rivers or wooded areas in the vicinity. You would have to take the permission of the local authorities in order to do this.
- Columbarium– This is a place that’s specially designed to keep cremated remains. The small nooks or shelves in this structure are used to house the urn containing the ashes of the deceased person. You can visit the place to pay your respects, just as you would visit a cemetery and place flowers on a gravestone.
As you can see, there are a number of different options open to you when it comes to selecting a final resting place for a loved one after cremation.
