Burial is a traditional type of final disposition where the deceased is placed into the ground or entombed in a mausoleum. According to the traditional rituals, the deceased is embalmed and placed into a casket that is buried. However, alternative forms of burial are becoming more popular, such as green burials. Another common practice in recent years is to have a burial after cremation. This means that the deceased’s ashes are placed into the ground and buried.
Choosing to have a service is one of the most important things when facing the loss of a loved one. Burial service is a way of honoring and respecting their life, and it allows family and friends to say express their feelings and say their goodbyes, find closure and start their healing process.
Moreover, a burial service gives your family and friends a meaningful place to visit when you want to feel close to your loved one. It can be a personal or family tradition to regularly visit the gravesite to leave flowers, share memories, or simply sit and think about your loved one.
Burial services are also the most traditional form of final disposition for many religions. Especially in Catholicism and Judaism, religions that believe in the physical resurrection of the body, traditional burial services are encouraged.
