Alternative forms of funeral – in a natural setting, in space or as a diamond

A bespoke funeral in keeping with the wishes of the deceased

Other forms of funeral are gaining in popularity in addition to burial and creation. For some people the wealth of options is a source of anxiety. On the other hand, there is an opportunity to make individual decisions that reflect one’s wishes within the context of a funeral plan.
Anyone able to make choices whilst alive should not be denied this opportunity for their final journey. Nowadays it is possible to choose a wide range of other burial sites in addition to plots in a cemetery. In so-called alternative funeral forms the ashes of the deceased can, for example, be buried in a natural setting after cremation or pressed into a diamond.

Natural funerals include burials in the sea, woodland burials under a tree, internment in a mountain pasture and the scattering of ashes in a special meadow.

Cremation is also a prerequisite for a space funeral. After cremation a small proportion of the ashes (approx. 5 grams) is placed in a special capsule. Together with other containers this urn is then launched into space with a rocket, where they circle for an estimated period of between eighteen months and ten years before finally burning away. Some space programmes are not suitable for this mission and it may be necessary to wait some time for a suitable means of transport. The remaining ashes of the deceased are interred in the conventional manner at a cemetery or, for example, at sea.
Having the ashes of a deceased person transformed into a diamond is also an option and it is possible, though not necessary, to use all the ashes in this process. In line with prevailing mandatory burial regulations the remaining ashes must be interred elsewhere. Moreover, it is even possible to have several memorial stones made – if you have several children, for example. The colour always differs according to the ashes. You can decide on the cut, form and engraving.
