Cremation Options

Cremation is a method of processing human remains into ash and very small bone fragments which can be achieved through mechanical, thermal or other methods.

The number of families that choose cremation in the United States is increasing with each passing year and it remains a practical and popular choice.


Cremation memorials are simply any structures that are specially designed to hold the cremated remains of a loved one.


Hudson Valley Memorial Group can honor your loved one’s cremated remains in a number of different ways, depending on your wishes and the interment location.

For instance, many people choose to have their loved one’s cremated remains buried at a cemetery, or interred traditionally, as they would a casket.

Some families place their loved one’s remains into a niche, or a small space built into a stone wall or building, called a columbarium.

Cremated remains can be also housed inside monuments, benches, or full-scale custom mausoleums.

Please call us so we can help you match your cremation memorial to the cemetery that is right for you and your loved one. We will be honored to assist you in making this important decision.
