But if you have your heart set on burying the ashes, that’s as good an option as any.
Here are some recommendations if the goal is to bury the ashes following the cremation service.
Some funeral homes will allow you to bury a cremation urn in a cemetery plot. Because urns are obviously a lot smaller than caskets are, you can expect that the cost to bury the former will be more cost-effective. In fact, some funeral homes will allow you to bury urns for free as long as it’s buried on a family member’s plot at the cemetery. So the urn will be buried on a plot already occupied by a loved one who passed away before them. You may need to call around to find out whether or not the cemetery you’re considering offers this option.
You can choose to bury the ashes of your deceased loved one in a columbarium. In reality, you won’t technically be burying the ashes. A columbarium niche is a place where cremation urns are stored. So you can pursue this option to intern the cremated remains of a loved one. The reason you might consider interning ashes at a columbarium niche a form of “buying” the ashes is that there is a sense of permanence. You can place the urn in an area of the facility, get a personalized plaque to memorialize them, and even come back to visit the location.
Some cemeteries have urn gardens where people can bury the urns containing their deceased loved one’s ashes. In such cases, there will be a section of the cemetery reserved for burying caskets and another section – an urn garden – where urns can be buried. Again, you’ll want to contact cemeteries to find out which ones offer this option. You might also wish to ask the funeral director you consult with for recommendations on what cemeteries can accommodate your desire to bury the urn in an urn garden.
