What are the options for final resting places?

Published: August 16, 2021

For burial, there are three different resting place options: above ground, in the ground or at sea. A body can be entombed in a mausoleum or buried in a cemetery. At sea, a body can be released into the ocean in a biodegradable container that is weighted.

If cremation is chosen, there are several different options. An urn can be buried in the ground at a cemetery, urn garden or memorial garden. Like a casket can be placed in a crypt, an urn can be entombed in a niche. A biodegradable urn can be released at sea, or in an inland body of water. A well known option is that cremains can be scattered or kept at the home of a loved one. A unique option for cremation is that the ashes can be transformed into many different types of art. They can be included into glass art, placed in jewelry, turned into diamonds and many more options.
