Today, more and more people are choosing cremation over traditional in-ground burial. The primary reasons are that it is dignified, simple, and economical. At Mount Calvary Cemetery Group, memorialization for those who wish to be cremated is just as important as for those choosing in-ground burial or a mausoleum.
Cremation can take place either before or after a funeral memorial service, but generally within a few days after the death. The choice is yours and should be made in consultation with your funeral director. A cremation that takes place immediately after a death as soon as legal authorization has been obtained is called a Direct Cremation. Some people prefer to have a traditional funeral service with a casket prior to the cremation taking place. This is perfectly acceptable. New York State law requires that transportation of a body to a cremation facility must be through a licensed funeral director.
Crematories are considered a disposition facility and are usually operated in conjunction with a cemetery. Mount Calvary has its own crematory on its premisis.
