Burial


Disposition is the term used to describe the final manner in which we handle the deceased's remains. The decision to choose either burial or cremation is, essentially, a decision about the manner in which you desire for the body to be returned to the natural elements.

When choosing burial, a body can be interred in a traditional earth burial, it can be entombed in a crypt within a mausoleum, or it can even be buried at sea.

If you care for a more traditional approach, burial is most likely the right decision for you. If tradition is not your primary concern, but you simply do not like the idea of "burning" the remains, or if you prefer the idea of a traditional grave for visitation after the services are over, then these are also reasons why burial might be the right decision.

When choosing burial, here are some additional items you'll need to consider, as well:

- Will the body be embalmed?

- What type of casket will be used?

- What cemetery will you choose for final resting?

- Have you purchased a plot?

- What will you say on the gravestone?
