Casketed Burial Services

People often confuse not having a full casketed earth burial with not having a funeral.  Even if a family chooses cremation over full casketed earth burial, they can absolutely still have a meaningful memorial service. 

Cremation or Burial

This is one of the major decisions that needs to be made when a death occurs and it usually depends on a variety of things.  If your family has traditionally chosen burial in previous generations, you may decide to choose earth burial as your family might own plots together in a local cemetery.  Furthermore, your family may not like the idea of cremation and opt for burial.  There are certain costs associated with burial.  Some of them include casket prices and selection, plot within the cemetery, opening and closing of the gravesite, and headstone in the cemetery.  Each cemetery is governed by their own board of directors therefore prices and guidelines differ from one cemetery to the next.

"Disposition" is the term used by those in the funeral profession to describe the final handling of the deceased's remains. Although your initial decision for the disposition of the body is between burial and cremation, there are several variations on each. Whichever choice you make, the body will return to its natural elements.

Full Burial Choices

  • The body can be interred (earth burial)
  • It can be entombed in a crypt within a mausoleum (above-ground burial)
  • It can be buried at sea

Reasons For Choosing Burial

  1. Burial may be the tradition within your family, religious group, or geographical area. 
  2. You do not like the idea of the body being "burned"
  3. You prefer to have the body slowly return to the elements.
  4. You want to erect a monument on the grave
  5. Perhaps you want to visit the grave in the days to come, and you find a graveyard more appealing than say, a columbarium.

Decisions You Must Make If You Choose Burial

  • Whether or not the body is to be embalmed
  • Which kind of casket (or coffin) will house the body
  • Whether or not the cemetery requires a vault or grave liner
  • Which cemetery to use
  • What kind of plot
  • What to put on the gravestone
