The cremation of the deceased

The cremation

If someone has expressed the wish to be cremated after their death, it is possible on the condition that a medical certificate mentioning the absence of pacemaker is issued.

A cremation doesn't prevent any burial in a cemetery. Actually, ashes can be buried like a coffin. Though it is not compulsory. Ashes can be directly scattered at the crematorium, brought into a columbarium or handed to the family to be kept at home, scattered
in the sea for instance. However, current regulations must be taken into account.

In this respect we can explain the different options to you.
