Tips for Solving Family Disagreements over Burial and Cremation Decisions
Losing a loved one can be devastating, and it’s common for family members to have disagreements during this emotional time. Choosing between traditional burial and cremation is one of the most important decisions to make, and many people have strong feelings about these two options.
If your family is dealing with a disagreement over burial and cremation, the first thing to consider is whether the deceased ever made his or her final arrangement preferences known. If he or she completed funeral pre-planning, then you can simply follow the pre-arranged plan. If the deceased’s preferences regarding burial or cremation are unknown, it may be best to meet with a memorial counselor who can provide additional information about the pros and cons of each option.
