3 Reasons You Should Choose Your Own Final Resting Place

At St. Pierre Family Funeral Services, we’ve talked to many of our neighbors in Indianoplis, Greenwood, and Pendleton who have said this: “When I witnessed my loved one’s burial, I couldn’t help but think of where I would like to be laid to rest. How do I go about making that decision?” 

We thought it would be helpful to offer guidance, since we know how significant this is for you and for generations of your loved ones. We’ve compiled information to get you started. 

Choosing your final resting place is deeply personal. 

This question is important: Have you thought about whether you would prefer traditional burial or cremation? What about whether you want your final resting place to be above ground in an individual family private mausoleum or a community mausoleum? Or how about in-ground with a traditional headstone, a lawn-level marker, or perhaps a bench, a plaque, or an art piece? There are also those looking for an “eco-friendly” cremation burial option. 

Many families want to visit their loved ones after they die, which can impact the location and specifics of a final resting place. If you can think it, we can help you do it, whether you prefer above-ground or in-ground, cremation or a casket, or even both in one space. 

You don’t want your family to have to guess what you would have wanted. 

Too often, we meet with families who have lost someone important to them and want to make sure they make the right decisions on their loved one’s behalf. But when it comes to selecting the final resting place, are not sure where their loved one would have liked to be buried. They have to decide among themselves, and as you can imagine, this doesn’t always go smoothly. 

This is why it’s extremely important to make this decision for yourself. After all, you want to be in control rather than leaving your family to decide on your behalf. 

You might be wondering where to start when it comes to exploring all options. You’re not alone – and that’s why we are here to help you every step of the way.  

You want your choice of a final resting place to bring you peace of mind. Count on us to help you carry out your wishes.
