Cremation or Traditional Burial 

The decision to be cremated or have a traditional burial is a personal one and one that influences your options for burial. Another consideration must be given to your preferences regarding in-ground or above-ground burial.

Options for interment of cremated remains:

  • interred in an existing family grave (if consent is received)
  • interred in an in-ground cremation lot
  • inurned in a Columbarium(an above-ground granite structure with individual niches for urns).

Options for traditional (casket) interment:

  • interred in an in-ground lot
  • interred in a mausoleum crypt

Your decision may also be influenced by the wishes of a spouse or other family members, so it's a good idea to discuss this ahead of time so that all are aware of decisions being made.
