The old saying is very true--we are a long time dead.

Have you considered how you want to be laid to rest? Does it matter to you how your remains spend eternity?

Cremated and then sent up in a firecracker over the ocean.

LOVING that idea!!

Cremated. I would want to donate my body to the medical fraternity.
My best friend is doing that. Kudos to you :-)

Both my hubby and I want to be cremated and have our ashes scattered somewhere meaningful. We don't have kids and I really don't expect nieces and nephews to come and visit our gravesites, so what is the point of us having a plot with a headstone.
Definitely buried, as my mum has reserved space for me to be buried next to her.
Cremation is my choice. I believe in the quote "earth to earth; ashes to ashes".
Buried. Hopefully together with my husband. I told him that if I go before him, he must make sure that my grave is covered with good grass and a plant, preferably a rose bush.

I bought extra plots when my Mother died, so have to use them up!
I think cremated is my choice. Haven't really thought about it too much.
I don't really care. Cremated because it takes up less room. But I think given to science, so I think they just bin you at the end and give the family a plaque. I have no idea if they actually cremate you (It would be a hygiene thing surely?)
I believe they cremate you when they are finished with your body and give your ashes back to your family.

If memory serves me . . . after one year they give the family the majority of the body back and after three years they give the family a large portion of the body back. You can donate your body for different lengths of time. My friend is doing this. (and I think the researchers keep the brain . . . ) Or . . it is a variation of this from state to state. Is there a doctor in the house?
by Rice
If I had to think about it I would say cremated. I don't want people crying over my grave when I'm gone.
I think I want to be cremated. I have this phobia of being incorrectly pronounced dead and then waking up when I'm six feet under. If you're ashes, there's no chance of waking up.
Cremated - in a plain pine box - no frills. It's cheaper, less expensive, doesn't take up land, and is less stressful on those left behind.
Couldn't agree more. Don't understand those who spend thousands & thousands on a fancy coffin - what a waste! Hoping by the time it's my time a fancy cardboard box will be acceptable!

I have been thinking of this more recently. A natural burial appeals, as it is the more environmentally friendly option. I am considering getting council approval for home burial.
Cremated. I absolutely HATE the cold so I have told everybody that I want to be toast when I go.

Defiantly cremation. I’ve always loved the idea of going up in smoke, in a cardboard box, painted with flamingos & tulips! I’d also loved the idea of having my ashes thrown over the side of a a cruse ship, but since that is not allowed these days, off the Manly ferry will have to do instead! (As long as the wind isn’t blowing in the wrong direction, for the family members doing this for me!)
I feel that I want to be cremated, then have my ashes scattered I'm not sure where, the burials is an on going cost of the grave site, and I don't want any ads in the paper as I think it's a waste of money, the memory always stays in the heart of a loved one, no ad will ever change that.
Definitely cremated. Don't want to be put in the cold, cold ground to be eaten by worms!
