Burial service

Previously, the burial of bodies or ashes consisted of placing the remains of a deceased person in the ground, in what was called a "grave." Today, when we talk about burial of the body or the ashes, many more options are available:

Burial of a body

The casket may be placed:

  • in the ground in a plot
  • in a concrete crypt in a garden setting (in the ground)
  • or, finally, in a crypt (also called "tomb") inside a mausoleum.

Burial of ashes

The urn may be placed:

  • in the ground in a plot

  • in the niche of a columbarium inside a mausoleum (cemetery)

  • in the niche of an outdoor columbarium (cemetery)

  • at the base of a commemorative tree (cemetery)

  • inside a columbarium bench (cemetery)

  • or in a columbarium in a funeral complex

Scattering of ashes

The ashes can also be scattered in a family plot, in a registered cemetery garden plot, at the base of a memorial or commemorative tree or at any other site chosen by the family.

A respectful tribute

Your Magnus Poirier advisor is there to help you plan the funeral you want and to fully coordinate the process and procedures with the required suppliers: church, religious or lay leader, florist, singer and musician, caterer, cemetery and more.

Whatever funeral protocol you chose – burial, niche, scattering of the ashes – it will be carried out in a respectful, meditative and dignified setting.
