Some people are surprised to learn that cremation does not preclude a funeral with all the traditional aspects of the ceremony. Visitation or viewing with a funeral ceremony and church or memorial services are options to be considered. Cremation is selected for many reasons ranging from religious beliefs or ethnic customs to personal preference. Connecticut state law requires a forty eight hour waiting period between the time of death and cremation. The waiting period provides the time necessary to file the required permits and receive prior authorizations. There are a variety of options for the final disposition of cremated remains. Urns may be placed in a niche at the cemetery. Families may elect to bury the urn in a family plot or the urn may be kept in another place or personal significance such as the home.
