When a loved one passes away, there are several options that you can take in terms of funeral services, you can burry them in a casket, or cremate them. One of the hardest options would be to cremate a loved one,because its seeing them go through a fire pit that hurts the most for family members, but if that is the wish of the person who died, then the families are just forced to do what they ask.
Cremation can be very easy and quick, but very painful especially if you are very close to the person who dies. After the process of cremating a loved one, their remains will now be inside an urn where they will be placed in a niche inside a crypt or you also have the option to keep them in cremation walls in USA.
With the remains in hand, the family now has several options with regards with what to do with it. There are very beautiful ceremonies as well. Here are several cremation optionsthat you can use for your loved one:
Burial in a cemetery – this type of burial is one of the most common types of burials. This process is through burial of the remains underground. During this process the remains are going to be buried in a cemetery plot, while memorial prayers and religious rites will be performed beside the grave. Once the memorial service is over, you have the option to mark the location with a monument or a grave marker to indicate that your loved one is placed in that location. As cremated remains have the tendency to take up less space than the burials of an actual body, most cemeteries will allow that you put in more than one person in the same grave plot. When you are going to decide to this, you must make sure that you ask the cemetery with regards to the price, and how many people you are allowed to put in that grave plot.
Special burial rites – when you say special, if the person requests that you bury them somewhere else aside from a cemetery, you also have the option to this. Like scattering their remains in an island, or dropping their remains in the ocean. This will be your choice if you would want to go with this kind of service, it will not cost you any money, but you have to make sure that you only practice this kind of service if the person requests to be scattered somewhere else.
Burying remains in a private plot – some families may want to keep the ashes of their loved ones in a separate or more private plot. This kind of burial can be done without the involvement of a funeral director, however it is better to follow the health and safety legislation that is applicable in your area of residence. If you want to plan a graveside ceremony with the burial you also have the option to do so. Once the process is over, you can now mark the persons grave with a tombstone or a marker to indicate that your loved one is buried in that location.
