More often than not, spouses will both choose to go with either burial services or cremation services in Sacramento, CA. They’ll have a conversation about which option they would like to pick, and then they’ll run with it once they’re able to come to an agreement. But every now and then, one spouse might want to be buried while the other one wants to be cremated. It can lead to them facing some tough questions such as, “Can my cremated remains be buried with my loved one who was buried in a casket?” Find out the answer below.
You’ll be happy to hear that you can, in fact, have your cremated remains buried with your spouse’s casket following your Sacramento, CA cremation. The vast majority of cemeteries will be more than willing to make this happen for you. This should provide you with a small sense of relief if you’ve been worried about you and your spouse not being able to get on the same page when it comes to the burial vs. cremation debate. You can still be buried together even if one of you wants to be buried and the other wants to be cremated.
While most cemeteries will allow cremated remains to be buried in a casket, there are going to be a couple of ways in which you can do it. In some instances, you can opt to have your remains buried on top of a loved one’s casket. In other cases, you can choose to purchase a burial plot next to your loved one’s plot so that your remains can be buried there. You will have to decide which of these options will be your best bet before you make a final decision on which direction you want to go in.
There is almost always going to be a cost associated with having your cremated remains buried along with a spouse’s casket. But the cost is going to depend on a few key factors. First and foremost, the cemetery that you choose for your loved one’s burial as well as the burial of your remains will impact the cost of burying your remains. The way in which you ask for your remains to be buried will also have an effect on the cost. A cemetery will be able to give you a much better idea of what it’ll cost to bury your remains with your spouse’s casket.
If you would like to have your cremated remains buried with your spouse’s casket, you shouldn’t wait until the last minute to let others know this. Ideally, you’ll want to plan ahead for this by going through the pre-planning process with both a funeral home and a cemetery.
