Burial or Cremation - Which to choose?

After a loved one has passed, it is possible to opt for a burial or a cremation. Although this preference might have been voiced by your loved one prior to their passing, this decision might be left to those who have been left behind. Even if this might appear to be an easy decision to make, the differences and advantages for both might not always be clear. We can help you see more clearly.

A Burial

On the one hand, a burial is generally preferred by most cultures and most often goes in accordance with religious beliefs. A burial, also called inhumation, consists of placing the body of the deceased underground, with a tombstone above.

Before the burial, the cemetery must be contacted in order to choose a burial plot and the tombstone. Fees for the purchase of a casket, the burial plot and the tombstone must also be paid.

Although this option is more expensive, some people find that the grieving process is made easier with a burial, and often love to a have place where they can visit the person they have lost.

Before a viewing, a body is embalmed in order to offer a last peaceful image of the deceased to their loved ones. Take note that it is also possible to proceed to embalming and a viewing of the deceased before having their body cremated.


Cremation, sometimes referred to as “incineration”, consists of placing the body in a box prior to inserting it in a cremation furnace at temperatures ranging between 1,000 and 1,200 degrees Celsius. The ashes are then gathered and placed in one or several urns.

The urn can then be buried –mush as you would with a casket-, kept in someone’s home, placed in a columbarium or have the ashes dispersed.

However, funeral arrangements are often simplified in this case, especially given that plot options are becoming increasingly limited, and fees are lower as well.
