Paying Final Respects with Dignity

At Greener Pastures Funeral, Creamation & Reception Planning we arrange different types of funerals to meet individual needs. The main focus should always be on the wishes of the deceased. If the deceased did not express any clear wish while he or she was alive, we recommend that the relatives and other loved ones ask themselves the following questions when choosing the type of funeral:

  • What type of funeral would fit the life and personality of the deceased?
  • What effects will it have on how the loved ones will deal with their grief and their memories of the deceased?

 

We will meet with you personally to discuss these concerns.

On the following pages you will find more detailed information about the individual types of funerals:

Types of Funerals: Burial

Grave burial is one of the oldest and most traditional types of funerals. The deceased is placed in a casket and buried in either a single row plot or family grave site.

As a general rule, the deceased is buried in or near their hometown. Only in exceptional cases can a cemetery in another location be chosen.

Relatives and loved ones can always visit the grave whenever they feel the need, place flowers or other items there in memory of the deceased, and be close to the departed.

Types of Funerals: Cremation

Cremation can be performed with or without a funeral service. In this form of funeral, the deceased is cremated in a casket at a crematorium. The remaining ashes are stored in an urn and then handed over to a chosen cemetery for burial. The choices of burial sites range from an urn burial site, family grave site, mausoleum or anonymous urn burial plot.

Note: Cremation is only possible if the deceased gave written consent to cremation while he or she was still alive. If the deceased has not left a will indicating the type of funeral desired, a cremation can also be arranged by the next of kin.

Types of Funerals: Burial at Sea

In special types of funeral service following cremation, the urn is taken beyond the three-mile zone into open waters of the sea and the captain scatters the deceased's remains over the water. The deceased's loved ones will receive a commemorative certificate including the exact location of the burial and an excerpt from the ship's log. On request, the family of the deceased may also be present during the burial at sea.

Note: A burial at sea is only possible if the deceased gave written consent to such a burial while he or she was still alive. If the deceased has not left a will indicating the type of funeral desired, a burial at sea can also be arranged by the next of kin.

Types of Funerals: Anonymous Burial

In special types of funeral service following cremation, the urn is taken beyond the three-mile zone into open waters of the sea and the captain scatters the deceased's remains over the water. The deceased's loved ones will receive a commemorative certificate including the exact location of the burial and an excerpt from the ship's log. On request, the family of the deceased may also be present during the burial at sea.

Note: A burial at sea is only possible if the deceased gave written consent to such a burial while he or she was still alive. If the deceased has not left a will indicating the type of funeral desired, a burial at sea can also be arranged by the next of kin.
