Choosing a burial for your funeral

Unlike cremations, burial funerals don’t need to be held at a dedicated crematorium. They can take place in venues that have their own cemetery, such as a church, or can be held in a preferred place of worship before the coffin is transported to a final burial plot.

There’s a lot to consider when it comes to burials, and it’s important you make your choices clear before you pass away, to reduce the strain on your family and ensure you get your wishes. You may want to be buried in the same grave as another family member, or might want to be laid to rest in a specific location that has some meaning to you.
