The first decision you must make is what you want to hold your loved ones remains. You can choose the container provided by the crematory or a cremation urn, which can be designed to fit the personality of the deceased. Cremation urns come in all different colors, shapes, sizes, and materials. They can be made out of wood, metal, glass and other bio-degradable materials.
You can also bury or scatter the ashes. If you decide to bury the urn, you can either choose a cemetery plot or a mausoleum. When scattering the ashes, be sure to check with state and local guidelines to make sure you aren’t breaking any land preservation laws. Most people who scatter ashes choose a place that was sacred or special to a loved one to honor their last requests.
