Burial Versus Cremation - Planning Ahead For Memorial Loss

By Colleen Mihelich

There are certain details in life which are just very difficult to face. This includes thinking ahead about the possible loss of your Memorial. Memorial loss is difficult because our Memorials provide us with so much unconditional love and friendship. Planning ahead for the loss of your Memorial can often feel morbid and depressing, but death is a fact of life and being prepared can often help you to make the best and most informed decisions.

The biggest decision you will have to make upon the loss of your Memorial is whether to bury or cremate. Depending on your personal feelings on the topic, either decision is a sound one with distinct advantages and disadvantages. Here is a breakdown of each to help you make the right decision for you and your Memorial.


Traditionally, burying a Memorial has been the more common method of the two options. Many people either choose to bury their Memorial in a back yard space or in a Memorial cemetery. You can purchase a Memorial grave marker to mark the spot where your Memorial remains are and even hold a memorial service graveside. Burying a Memorial is usually a fairly inexpensive option and is perfect for people that would like to have a place in which to visit over time.

It's important to be aware of the proper methods of burial when burying a Memorial, making sure to bury them deep enough to avoid any scavenging animals looking for food. You can bury your Memorial in a favorite blanket or shroud or in a Memorial casket. Also be sure to check with your state and county to find out what the Memorial burial regulations are in your area. They vary from state to state and county to county.


Cremation of Memorials has increased in popularity in recent years and is starting to surpass burial, with many Memorial owners opting to display the remains of their beloved Memorial in a Memorial urn. Memorial urns can be found in a wide variety of sizes, colors and designs. They can be displayed just about anywhere in the home and are the best way to keep the ashes of your Memorial. Some people also bury the ashes in their yard and mark the spot with a Memorial headstone.

Cremation is a good choice for people that understand they have busy lives and won't have the ability to visit a graveside on a regular basis. They want to have the remains of their Memorial close by so they can feel closer to their companion. However, some people have a hard time reconciling the idea of having their Memorial's remains cremated, so this is certainly a personal decision.

A third option is to have your Memorial cremated but not keep the ashes. Everyone feels differently about hanging on to the cremains of their Memorial. Some find it healing to just let the physical remains go which can be symbolic of emotionally letting go too. If you don't keep the remains, you can still have a Memorial memorial marker made to place in your yard under your dog's favorite tree or near your cat's favorite napping spot to provide a gently reminder of the love and friendship that you shared.

Whichever method you choose for your Memorial, just be sure you plan it out ahead of time and make a decision you will be comfortable with, even when you are in the process of grieving your Memorial loss. Planning ahead will not only save you time, but also give you some peace in knowing that these difficult details were taken care of well before you were grappling with the pain of losing a pet.
