Comparing Types of Burial Options
When you pass away, how do you want to be buried? It’s a question that many people don’t like to think about, but you should give it some consideration in order to make the decision easier on your family. By doing funeral pre-planning and picking your preferred burial method, those you love won’t have to decide which burial option is best for you. When you pre-plan a funeral in Oakland, your family will know exactly what you want. Here are some of the burial options that will be available to you.
This is the most common burial option. In order for a funeral home to arrange for an in-ground burial, you should use funeral pre-planning to buy a burial plot. Many spouses choose to buy burial plots together towards the end of their lives so that they can be buried in the same spot. When you pre-plan your funeral, you will also be able to pick exactly which cemetery you want to be buried in.
Not everyone wants to be buried when they pass away. For those people, mausoleums are a great option. Whether you want to be buried above ground in a community mausoleum that everyone can visit or you want to be buried above ground in a private mausoleum that only your friends and family can access, mausoleums are excellent choices. Your family will not have to worry about maintaining your burial plot when you are buried in a mausoleum.
Do you want your loved ones to have access to your remains once you are gone? Or do you want your ashes to be spread in a place that you loved when you were alive? If either of these things appeal to you, you should choose cremation. It’s usually the more affordable choice.
