Burial is a type of final disposition where the deceased is placed into the ground. Traditionally, the deceased is embalmed and placed into a casket that is buried. However, natural burials are becoming more common. Typically, in this case, the body isn’t embalmed and is simply buried as is or even wrapped in a shroud and then buried.
It’s also common to do burial after cremation. This means that the deceased’s ashes are placed into the ground and buried. Typically, a grave marker or headstone will be placed where the ashes are buried. However, it is also common for people to keep their loved one’s ashes or even scatter them at a later time.
There also is above-ground burial or entombment. This is when the deceased’s body is placed in a casket, which then remains in a mausoleum.
Having a burial service allows you to give your loved one a proper funeral ceremony that they deserve. Witnessing the burial helps you honor and respect your loved one, while also helping you process their passing and cope with your grief. Additionally, you may choose burial based on your religious or personal beliefs.
Being in nature also can bring you some comfort while mourning your loss. Research shows that being in nature helps regulate serotonin levels in the brain, which helps stabilize our overall mood.
It also gives your family and friends a meaningful place to visit when you want to feel close to your loved one. It can be a personal or family tradition to regularly visit your loved one’s gravesite to leave flowers, share memories, or simply to sit and think about your loved one.
