Burial or Cremation?


At Graft-Jacquillard, we like to approach the choice of burial versus cremation from a different perspective.  


Simply put, burial or cremation does not determine the style of funeral arrangements you desire.  We feel it should be considered more as a personal choice in the type of disposition you prefer.  


You may choose a service with a viewing for family and friends or one that is private allowing your family members a brief farewell.  A service might include a eulogy at the funeral home or a funeral ceremony in your church.  


Perhaps a memorial service with a video tribute is more your style?


In either case, you have many options and can customize a funeral service that best reflects your personality and preferences all the while taking into account the needs of your family.


Therefore, we recommend that you carefully consider the kind of service you want and then plan for the type of disposition you desire.  Below are some options for both burial and cremation.


  • Burial in a cemetery or memorial park

  • Entombment in a mausoleum

  • Burial of an urn on a family lot

  • Scattering of the cremated remains

  • Outdoor niche interment

  • Personalized memorial urn for keeping a loved one’s remains in the home
