Cremation is a method of disposition which uses high heat to reduce the body to its primary elements, mainly bone fragments and particles known as ashes or cremated remains. Park Lawn Cemetery holds the only Sudbury crematorium. The cremation fee can be prepaid with them directly or through us. Once the cremation is prepaid it is also considered guaranteed. The Ontario law currently states that a body must be cremated in a combustible container. Once cremation has taken place, cremated remains can be buried in a cemetery, a cremation plot or over an already existing grave. Cremated remains are only buried 1-2 feet down and do not disturb the original grave. Most cemeteries will allow 3 sets of cremated remains to be buried over a casket. It is legal to scatter or bury cremated remains on private land such as your home or camp or on public land such as a lake or in the woods. Some people may wish to keep their cremated remains at home until they decide what they would like to do with them; we will hold the cremated remains in our care for one year at no charge. The funeral home offers a wide selection of urns including personalized keepsake urns and custom cremation jewellery. Please note: It is not mandatory to purchase an urn. The cremated remains come back from the crematorium in a basic black plastic container; this container is suitable for burial.
