You can inter, or lay to rest, cremated remains after cremation services in Morrison, IL. There are many ways you can inter your lost loved one’s remains after a cremation. You can bury them, place them in a niche, or many other types of internment. But where can you inter your lost loved one’s cremated remains?  

There are many places to choose for the interment of ashes. You just need to decide how you would like to lay your loved one to rest, such as:  

  1. Public Land – If you want to inter an urn on public land, you will need a special permit as public land cannot be used to burial or scattering remains unless otherwise stated. Some spaces, like theme parks and sport stadiums, never allow any type of burial or scattering. Other spaces, like national parks, do allow it when the bereaved fill out an application and get a permit. It is always wise to ask first. You would hate to have your loved one’s cremated remains swept or vacuumed up, only to be placed in a trash can. 
  2. Columbarium – A columbarium is a room, wall, or building created specifically to house cremated remains inside urns. They are built with niches to hold the urns and provide the bereaved final resting places at which they can visit and remember their lost loved ones.   
  3. Cemetery – You can inter or bury cremated remains in a cemetery. Some cemeteries allow ashes to be buried in the same kind of grave space as full caskets, while others only allow ashes to be buried in special cremated remain graves. Before making plans to inter a loved one, check with your local cemetery.  
  4. Private Property – You can bury an urn with cremated remains on private property, such as your own land or the land of someone in your family or that of a friend. If you choose to bury the urn, you should consider the different types of burial urns. There are options that are designed to stand the test of time and there are others that are made to decay so the cremains can return to the earth. You should also consider if you need a burial vault to help keep the land from sinking after the burial.  
  5. Urn Garden – Urn gardens are special areas in cemeteries dedicated to cremated remains. In elaborate gardens, cremated remains are incorporated into the landscape, such as in benches, in a fountain, or other pieces. Less elaborate urn gardens have urns buried in the ground like other parts of the cemetery.  

Internment is laying someone to rest permanently, whether that means burial, cremation, a nice, or more. In the past, internment specifically meant burial. But these days, since cremation is so popular, it has also come to refer to the final disposition of cremated remains. Inurnment, however, is when ashes or cremated remains are placed in a permanent cremation urn, while burial is only the placement of remains in the earth.
