Many people choose to be cremated with or without traditional funeral services. After the body is cremated, the loved ones left behind need to decide the final resting place of these remains. At Tindall Funeral Home, we offer many cremation plans and often help family members make the right choice. Here are some of the options available to you:

1. Burial

Visiting the grave or where the remains of a loved one are buried can offer a great deal of comfort and solace. That’s one of the reasons why many reasons why some people choose to bury the ashes. You can bury them in your home and create a personal memorial at the burial site. You can also bury the ashes in the local cemetery.

2. Columbarium

A columbarium is specifically designed to store cremated remains. Many cemeteries have them with several options. These structures can be located indoors or outdoors and consists of a number of small compartments. 

3. Scattering the ashes

This is one of the oldest ways to handle cremation remains. People have been scattering ashes in the wind, water or other places for centuries. Some people travel to special locations and scatter the ashes there and that has some symbolic value.

Contact us at Tindall Funeral Home through our online form or call (315) 468-5521 if you want to know more about our various service plans.
