Cremated Remains: To Scatter or Bury?

Cremated Remains: To Scatter or Bury?

Losing a loved one is a difficult and emotional time, and it can be overwhelming to make decisions about what to do with their remains. One option that has gained popularity in recent years is scattering the cremated remains in a location that was special to the deceased or their family. While scattering may seem like a fitting tribute, it's important to consider other options, including placing the remains in a cemetery. Here are some reasons why putting cremated remains in a cemetery can be a meaningful choice:

  1. A Place of Remembrance: A cemetery provides a physical place where family and friends can go to remember their loved one. It can be comforting to have a designated space to visit and reflect on memories. Additionally, a cemetery can serve as a place for future generations to visit and learn about their family history.

  2. Permanence: While scattering may seem like a final farewell, it's important to remember that the location may not always be accessible or maintained. A cemetery offers a permanent location that will be preserved and cared for in perpetuity.

  3. Community: A cemetery provides a sense of community and shared remembrance. Family members can be buried in the same cemetery or even in the same plot, creating a lasting connection between loved ones.

  4. Personalization: Cemeteries offer a variety of options for personalizing the memorialization of a loved one. From unique headstones to benches and gardens, there are many ways to create a personalized and meaningful tribute.
