  1. i need some advice 3yrs ago a relative passed away. since then someone in the family chose to care for the ashes of the decease, well now 3yrs later they think it is better that the ashes be put to rest underground in a cemetery. So unfortunately everyone in the family has to go through the emotional goodbye again. do you think perhaps it would have been better to have just laid the decease underground right after they passed.that that decision should have been made right after instead of waiting is there a policy on how long you can keep a loves ones ashes till you finally figure out you should put them a cemetery instead. maybe you can reply.

  2. You have several options, but the most common are to bury the ashes or scatter the ashes. Burial urns are available here, if you do not have a suitable urn.

    Try to not worry about this. It’s not easy to deal with losing a loved one. It is okay to hold the ashes during your time of grieving, even if it’s three years. There’s no policy for this and you and your family can do what’s best. I hope this helped.
