Burial or Cremation

The cost of what we term as a traditional funeral does not vary much whether you decide on burial or cremation. The major difference is when a family grave has to be purchased. It is you the family who decide on burial or cremation, the choice is yours. It is important that you let your executor or next of kin know of your wishes.
Cremation: Cremation is available all over Ireland with crematoriums in Belfast, Cork and Dublin.
The coffin is always used in the cremation process. The ashes may be interned in a family grave, inserted in the columbarium wall or scattered at a favourite place.
Burial: Graves are generally allowed to accommodate three burials or four depending on space in the plot. Even after the burials cremated ashes may be interred in the grave. You may purchase a grave through us at Jerh. O'Connor Funeral Homes Cork.
