What Do I Do With The Ashes After Cremation?
After a person is cremated, their ashes are handed over to the family members. At George Darte Funeral Home, we have seen that many people are unsure about what to do with the ashes after cremation. Here is some information that will help you understand what you can do with them.
Options For What You Can Do With the Ashes After Cremation
Some things you can do with the ashes after cremating a loved one:
- Put the ashes inside an urn of your preference and place it on a corner table, shelf, or mantle in your home.
- You can place the urn in your home office or bedroom as well.
- Most cemeteries have columbariums, and you can keep the urn in a niche there. You can write your loved one’s name on the plaque near the cavity. Check whether your church has a columbarium on its premises.
- Burying the urn at a cemetery is another option, and the funeral director will help make these arrangements.
- Based on your requirements, you can choose from different urns, including very simple or elaborate ones.
- Some people prefer to scatter the ashes at sea or in the mountains. However, you must check whether there are any laws regarding the disposition of ashes in this manner.
Regardless of the disposition option you choose, you can discuss your requirements with the funeral director. We are here to help with all the details you need. We also have different types of urns made of wood, metal, and biodegradable materials too.
