Learn The Best Practices For Embalming & Cremation

By Allun Redmanz

The death of a loved one can be really devastating and painful for the surviving family and friends and the best way to pay tribute to their deceased loved one is through memorialization. This process helps the family members to remember the life lived and the memories they shared with the deceased. There are several ways to establish a permanent memorial for a departed loved one and this would take careful planning and considerations.

Contrary to what most people believe, cremation is not the final process. The process of cremation is just a preparation for memorialization. The truth is there are many options for the final disposition of the ashes or cremated remains.

The family must plan carefully in order to provide a beautiful memorial place for their deceased loved one. If they plan in advance, they can choose the type of memorialization that suits their needs. It is important to be familiar with the other types of memorials even if you already purchased one in advance. This would open you up to more options other than the one you already planned.

Due to the rising popularity of cremation services, chapels and cemeteries are establishing columbarium niche. These are special compartments that contain the urns. Some columbariums are as huge as an entire building, while others are like alcoves or halls. These niches have fronts made of glass, marble, bronze, granite, or mosaics.

Some cemeteries also have Urn Gardens specially made for cremated remains. The remains can either be interned on ground or above-ground. In this setting, families may choose an individual urn burial plot with a marker or an unmarked plot but with adjacent walls or work of art used as markers. Your local memorial park or cemetery may have this type of memorialization.

Another type of memorialization is the scattering of the cremated remains in Scattering Gardens. Some cemeteries have recently opened areas or gardens where the remains can be scattered. A special memorial plaque or wall is placed as a marker.

As the demand for cremation rises, other forms of scattering the ashes are becoming more popular. One of the alternative forms is scattering the ashes by air. This type of memorialization is usually done by families ready to take the final step in the grieving process. Releasing the ashes into the sky can be done by an airplane so it would really require a lot of preparations and money.

Some however still prefers to keep the ashes in special urns in their homes. Urns come in so many designs, sizes and materials. Families can personalize it by choosing an urn that reflects the unique character of their loved one who had assed away.

Losing someone you love through death can be painful, but having a beautiful permanent memorial will give your loved one special place for remembrance.
