Burial or Cremation?

People have many options and choices of what to do with their remains and deciding on their final resting place and many make their wishes clear before their death.

Direct burial and cremation are the most popular and the most traditional choices and have been for many generations. However, in these modern times, greater choices are available such as a woodland site or burial at sea, or your ashes can be kept inan appropriate urn or scattered in an appropriate place.

For many people, it is not always easy to make a decision after cremation, as to where the cremated remains should go, however local authorities provide the facility of small graves, solely for that purpose.

Two crematoria serve North Ayrshire and these are Greenock Crematorium and Dreghorn Crematorium.
