What to Do with Cremated Remains

Cemetery Los Angeles

Following the cremation of a deceased loved one, you’ll have several options to choose from as far as what to do with the cremated remains. The following are some of the choices to consider for cremated remains:

Inurnment
One popular option for cremated remains is to keep the deceased individual’s cremated remains in an urn. This urn can be stored in the surviving family’s home, and some people choose to divide up the remains into several different urns, allowing more than one household to have an urn that contains the cremated remains of their loved one who has passed on. Inurnment is chosen often because it allows the family to take their time to decide what to do with the cremated remains and to easily scatter them later if they so choose.

Memorialization
It’s important to realize that choosing cremation services for your deceased loved one does not mean that cemetery memorials aren’t an option. Following the funeral, you can opt to bury the cremated remains in a funeral plot, store them in a columbarium or mausoleum, or inter them within a cremation niche. Or you can choose to have the cremated remains buried in a cremation garden, or stored in a cremation ossuary, a granite bench, or rock a dedicated boulder in one of our cremation gardens. When it comes to memorialization for cremated remains, you’ll find that there are many options from which to choose.
