What is a Burial?

Burial is a type of final disposition where the deceased is placed into the ground or entombed in a mausoleum. Traditionally, the deceased is embalmed and placed into a casket that is buried. However, green burials are becoming more common.

It’s also common to do burial after cremation. This means that the deceased’s ashes are placed into the ground and buried. 


Why Choose Burial?

Choosing a burial service allows you to give your loved one a funeral service to honor and respect their life. It also helps you process their passing and cope with your grief. Additionally, you may choose burial based on your religious or personal beliefs.   

A burial funeral 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 your loved one’s gravesite to leave flowers, share memories, or simply to sit and think about your loved one. 


Burial Service Types

Whether you want a traditional in-ground burial or an above-ground entombment in a mausoleum, our funeral home can help you plan a meaningful burial service.  

Some burial services you can choose from are: 

  • Immediate Burial- A burial without a visitation or service. Your family may decide on this option if your loved one requested that there was no visitation or service. 
  • Visitation- Also known as a wake, is a time where family and friends can gather with an open or closed casket at the funeral home or a church before the funeral service or burial. Having a visitation before the funeral service gives you an opportunity to pay your respects to the deceased and express your condolences to their family.
  • Traditional Funeral Service- A service for a loved one that can take place at our funeral home, church, or another location. This service can be customized by a family to honor their loved one's life. 
  • Graveside Service- A graveside service can be held instead of a traditional funeral service or in addition to a funeral service. A graveside service takes place at the cemetery and can be a smaller service or gathering before the burial takes place.
  • Celebration of Life Service: This is similar to a traditional funeral service, but provides more opportunities for personalization. It also can include a burial service like with a traditional service. Or, it may take place well after the funeral service, so family and friends can continue to celebrate and honor their loved one’s memory.
  • Green Burial- Our funeral home is proud to partner with Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery in Gainesville, Floirda for an eco-friendly alternative to a traditional burial.
