Can an urn be buried in a cemetery or is it only for displaying at home?

An urn can be buried in a cemetery, but it is also common to display an urn at home. Some cemeteries have specific sections designated for cremated remains, where urns can be buried in the ground or in a columbarium, which is a structure with niches for urns.


It's important to check with the specific cemetery to see if they allow urns to be buried, as some cemeteries may only allow traditional casket burials. Additionally, some cemeteries may have regulations regarding the size or type of urn that can be buried, so it's best to check with them in advance. Scattering of ashes is also a common option for cremated remains and can be performed in various places, with permission from the land owner.


It's also possible to bury the urn in a family plot, in a special urn garden or to bury it in a grave with a traditional casket. It's important to note that, regardless of whether the urn is buried or displayed at home, it should be treated with the same respect and dignity as a traditional casket.


It's always best to consult with the funeral home or crematory and the cemetery where the urn will be buried or displayed to ensure that the urn you have chosen is appropriate for the specific facility.
