BURIAL OR CREMATION

The cost of a traditional funeral is not significantly different whether you choose burial or cremation.
The significant difference occurs when a new family grave must be purchased. The choice to be buried or cremated is yours. You should advise your next-of-kin/executor of your wishes.

Burial

  • If you do not own a grave, it will be necessary to purchase one. Dignity Funeral Care will assist you with this arrangement. A single family grave can accommodate three to four burials.
  • An existing grave that is full (will not accommodate any further adult burials) may be opened for the burial of an urn/casket following a cremation.

Cremation

  • For more than two decades, cremation has been an alternative to burial In Ireland.
  • Both the coffin and the deceased are cremated.
  • The ashes are available 24 to 48 hours after the Cremation.
  • Your options for the final resting place are many and varied. e.g. Garden of Remembrance, existing family grave, scattering in a chosen location.
