While the traditional choice is often considered to be burial, many Americans are now choosing cremation as a way to care for the body of your loved one. It’s not an easy decision to make on behalf of your loved one, so the first recommendation we offer is to think about what he or she would have wanted. If they never mentioned a preference between the two, carefully consider the pros and cons of each option. If you go with a burial, you will need to choose a casket, vault, and cemetery. If you opt for cremation, you will have the option of placing the cremated remains on the cemetery grounds, taking the remains home in an urn, or scattering the remains at an appropriate place.
