Memorialize After Cremation

Burial or Entombment for Cremated Remains

More and more Stark County families are choosing cremation as an alternative to in-ground burial or entombment. But many are left wondering what to do with cremated remains after the funeral or memorial service. There are many options for honoring a loved one who’s been cremated, beyond keeping an urn on a mantle at home.

The Canton Cemetery Association offers a variety of options for interring cremated remains. In addition to the columbarium and mausoleums at North Lawn Cemetery, you may also choose a traditional in-ground burial in an individual burial space or family plot.

Our family advisors are standing by to guide you through the options, equipping you to make the best decisions for your personal cemetery arrangements.
