Different Options To Put Ashes After Cremation
Here are some suggestions about what you can do with the ashes after cremation:
- Place the ashes in the type of urn you want and place them in a spot in your home. You can keep it on an end table, a mantle, or some other place. You can select from a range of urns made from different materials.
- If you prefer, you can create a small nook or memorial space inside your home or in the backyard. Place memorabilia, photos, plants, candles, and lights to create a space where you can pay homage to your loved one in a special way.
- Many cemeteries and churches have a columbarium on their premises and these structures are used to house urns that hold the ashes of the deceased. The niches have glass covers and metal plaques where you can engrave the deceased person’s name.
- If you want a traditional grave that you can visit to pay your respects to your loved one, consider burying the urn at a cemetery.
- You can also scatter the person’s ashes at sea or in the hills/mountains or some other outdoor location. If you choose this option, check local guidelines and rules related to it.
