Cemetery Options: Cremation Space

Planning for Cremation Property in Seattle

In addition to funeral services and the choice of burial or cremation, cemetery property, or “interment rights,” is another consideration when you’re making final arrangements, either for yourself in advance, or for a loved one.



A common misconception that people often have when they purchase the right of interment in a cemetery is that they have purchased the land itself, when in fact what they have really purchased is the right to be interred (also referred to as buried, entombed, enniched or placed) on or in that particular piece of property.



The caring professionals at Acacia Memorial Park & Funeral Home will gladly give you a tour of the cemetery so you can select the type and location of cemetery property that is right for you and your loved ones. Our North Seattle location is easily accessible from Northgate, Shoreline, Edmonds, Bothell and Kenmore. Regardless of whether your choice is burial or cremation, permanent memorialization of your life and legacy is a lasting heritage for your descendants.

 

Cremation Property

Many people overlook the importance of cemetery property for those who choose cremation, but permanent placement, or “final disposition,” of the ashes or “cremated remains” is an important part of final arrangements. Just consider:

Some common methods of final disposition of cremated remains are:

Headstones


Some cemeteries allow upright headstones, called “monuments,” to be used with ground burials. Headstones that are flat against the ground are called “markers.” In some cemeteries, like Acacia Memorial Park and Funeral Home for example, or sections of cemeteries, only flat markers are used to preserve the natural appearance of the landscape.

Vaults

Many cemeteries require vaults, sometimes “outer burial containers,” to be used with ground burials as well. Vaults are instrumental in protecting the structural integrity of the cemetery grounds and maintaining the beauty of our properties.
