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.
