Many Cremation Options


Sometimes our clients think that cremation has limited choices. When actually, cremation can increase your options and at much lower cost then a funeral.

Please remember private spreading, is spreading ashes in a publicly accessible location. You have to refer to state and county laws to determine if there are any restrictions or permits to obtain before spreading.

The benefits of private spreading options are that they are typically inexpensive or free. You can choose a location that is important to you or your family. Families spread love-ones ashes in many locations all over the world.

Here is our list of ideas you can do with your loved one’s cremains. Start by reflecting on their passion and hobbies what they loved:

  • Scatter the ashes at sea. This honors boaters, captains, fishermen, and people who love the water and beach. A biodegradable container is what you need, so the ashes do not fly. 
  • Bury the ashes in your yard with a biodegradable container. You can have beautiful landscaping with a rose bush, butterfly bush, or under a tree. Remember, you must declare to the next homeowner the ashes are there.
  • Share your parent’s remains with your brother and sisters by using the smallest urns called keepsakes. 
  • You can buy a custom urn that you can enjoy in your home to keep your loved one close.   
  • Keep your loved one close with cremation jewelry for men and women. 
  • Create an eternal reef. A few companies will mix your loved one’s ashes with concrete and place them in the ocean. It becomes part of an underwater reef that you may go to visit.
  • Scatter the ashes into the air at a favorite location of your loved one. Great way to honor pilots, balloonists, and people who love the blue sky and stars. 
  • Have an outdoor niche that holds your loved ones remains in an above-ground columbarium niche.
  • Have a traditional burial in-ground plot or family plot with cremation ashes. The urns are buried at the head or foot of a gravesite.
  • There are also forest cemeteries where you choose the tree and ashes get placed into the earth.

An Eternal Word

Grieving the idea of the loss of our loved ones is difficult. However, the reality is, paperwork, expenses, and preparations need to be completed. By planning, you will lift the burden, keep costs within your budget, and help your family make it easier.
