After your loved one has a cremation service in Glenview, IL, you can take your time in planning the memorial service, their final resting place, and so on. Time is on your side and it’s nice to know that you don’t have to rush. You will want to ensure that your loved one’s needs are met first and that’s why you go forward with the cremation. After that, you can plan a memorial service to honor their memory at any point in the future. Once the memorial is behind you, you can then decide what you want to do with your loved one’s remains. Even though you went with cremation, you can still plan a burial service, if you’d like that for their final resting place. Here are a few steps to take to get that planned out.
Choose The Cemetery
If you want to bury your loved one’s urn, you will need to find a cemetery with an urn garden. Urn plots are smaller and easier to afford than larger casket-sized plots. Look at the cemetery location, the location of the urn garden, and other regulations they have in place to help you decide which area is the best fit for your loved one.
Choose The Urn And Vault
If you already have an urn for your loved one, that’s great. Otherwise, you will need to choose one to place them in for their burial. Many cemeteries also require a vault to go around the urn. The vault is like a sturdy box that protects the urn, but also protects the ground in the cemetery from sinking in and becoming unstable as the years pass.
Plan The Service Details You Want
Once you have a cemetery plot and you have purchased an urn and vault, you are ready to plan the burial service. Perhaps you just want the cemetery to bury your loved one’s remains since you have already had a memorial service and that’s fine. Or, you might want to have a small graveside service, like you would with a traditional burial. You can even make the burial service the only memorial service you have. It all depends on what you want to do for your loved one.
Choose A Time And Day
After you have service ideas in mind, choose a time and day that works for you and inform your loved ones what you have in mind. You’ll want to choose something that works for the people you want to have present, if possible, to make it special.
