Your Options for Cremated Remains

Funeral Home Los Angeles

Planning a funeral can be an overwhelming experience, whether it’s for yourself or someone you love. When someone passes away, hopefully they will have specified whether they want to be buried or cremated. Cremation is an increasingly popular option, as it is simple, economical, and does not rule out the possibility of being interred in a cemetery. There are a number of options for where to place cremated remains after a person is deceased so that friends and family can visit and honor their memory long after they are gone. Read on to learn more about options for cremated remains.

An urn is a receptacle where cremated remains are stored. Urns come in a variety of styles, colors, and shapes, so consider choosing one that best reflects the tastes and preferences of the deceased. You might select a vase-like urn that’s made of metal, or an understated wooden box depending on your preferences. An urn can be ornate, elegant, sophisticated, or a combination of all of these. Consult with family members and friends for opinions if you are having a hard time selecting an urn.

In addition to gravestones, cemeteries typically also have columbaria where cremated remains are placed. A columbarium offers a specific and permanent place for the urn with the cremated remains to rest. This allows mourners to visit at any time, and provides a way for future generations to remember their relatives, as well. The columbarium may be located inside a mausoleum, and cremated remains have their own area or room.

If you or your loved one would prefer your cremated remains to be placed in an open-air setting, consider placement in a garden niche. Ask your memorial counselor if this is an option at the cemetery of your choosing. A garden niche provides a beautiful view and a natural setting for cremated remains to be located.

Considerations When Choosing Cremation for a Deceased Loved One

When someone you care about passes away, you may feel sad, angry, and overwhelmed at the number of tasks you must complete. It is normal to feel a broad range of emotions when a death occurs, which is why funeral pre-planning can be helpful for your friends and family. If your loved one has passed away without leaving specific instructions, it may fall to you to decide whether to cremate or bury. As you make this decision, there are a number of factors to consider before you make up your mind. Keep reading to learn more about choosing cremation for a deceased loved one.

Last Wishes
Death is a difficult event to deal with, but it can be eased slightly if the deceased had made his or her last wishes clear before passing away. Even if the deceased did not write down or pre-plan funeral and burial wishes, he or she may have expressed these wishes to you or another close relative or friend. Keep those wishes in mind as you are choosing cremation, making sure that it is in line with what the deceased would have wanted. If the deceased did not state a preference for cremation services or burial, discuss the matter with a few close loved ones so that you can feel confident about the decision to cremate.

When you are choosing whether to cremate or bury your loved one, you may want to look to religious beliefs to help determine your choice. Certain religions have beliefs around what is the proper way to deal with a body after death. While cremation may be allowed in some traditions, burial may be the preference for others. Be sure to keep the religious beliefs of the deceased in mind, rather than making the choice based on your own faith traditions.
