Burial or Cremation

Choosing Between Burial and Cremation

Some people have clear ideas about whether they would like to be buried or cremated and may have specified this in their Will, in a Letter of Wishes, or even verbally. If they have not, then either the next of kin or the executor will need to make that decision.

The following section provides information on both, and a comparison chart that may help to guide you.

Other Useful Information

The ceremony you choose will depend on the wishes and beliefs of the person who has died, or of those closest to them.

Some people will take comfort in the traditions and rituals of their faith, others may want a non-religious ceremony that perhaps allows for greater flexibility in location and content.
