Families often choose to combine cremation with traditional ground burial. This may occur when a family already owns Llano Cemetery property or desires to have cremated remains placed near loved ones already buried here. In-ground burial of cremated remains offers all the benefits of cremation along with the tradition of an in-ground burial.
Cremation is on the rise, and there are a variety of factors that contribute to this trend. By identifying some of the major reasons that people are choosing this interment option, you can decide if it is the right option for you:
Cost. Cremation costs considerably less than traditional, in-ground burial, and by sharing plots, you can even further reduce the costs.
Flexibility. Cremation gives you more freedom in planning any final services. You can hold onto the remains in an urn at home until you are ready for the final burial.
Simplicity. For people who prefer a simple burial, cremation may be a sensible option.
Personalization. Cremation still allows for viewing before cremation and an in-ground burial ceremony. Celebrating your loved one’s life has no limitations.
Environment. In-ground burial of cremation remains takes up significantly less space in the earth than a traditional casket.
