When one thinks of cremating a loved one, the first thing that usually comes to mind is keeping the ashes safe in an urn. While this option is very common in the United States, there are other ways you can help memorialize them. Because over one million urns are sitting in Americans’ homes, it becomes more likely to get lost in between moving, mishandled or even broken. Instead, opt to hold a cremation burial service in a cemetery that allows their story to be held and told for generations to come.
Hold a Cremation Burial
It is in the final deposition that we as human beings experience the last moments of our loved ones. A cremation burial is an in-ground burial that helps preserve this final deposition by protecting the urn within a vault. Unlike the one million urns that sit at home, a cremation burial allows for a safe resting place that is well-kept by a caring staff. Consider having cremation ashes on our remembrance garden, that was built around a memorial park concept. Our Cremation Gardens are meant to hold a plot for everyone who wants to revisit the deceased without having to visit someone’s home.
Reserve a Chapel Mausoleums
Chapel mausoleums are another choice for cremation ashes. Though it is traditional to bury below ground, chapel mausoleums are still made affordably to those who wish to proceed with cremation. No burial vault is required, which makes it as easily accessible as that of in-ground burials. This above-ground cremation burial plays a private setting in both community-style, patio crypts and even stand-alone estates. Rather than having an urn sit at home, you can share a family-style setting in a chapel that holds a closer connection long after one’s own life. The mausoleums are built with complete comfort including a climate-controlled environment, walk-in settings and bench seating. You can customize the design fully to personalize it to your liking.
Keeping cremation ashes in an urn at home can be quite comforting. However, it does not always fulfill the closure people look for compared to if they were to have a designated cremation burial. The harsh reality of scattering ashes elsewhere also does not give a proper resting place that you would otherwise get at a cemetery. It is best to refrain from these options and work with cemetery staff to give you the best alternatives on what to do with cremation ashes.
