Unclaimed cremated remains can languish in a back room for years. Even families that plan to claim the remains of a loved one don’t get around to picking them up any time soon. What’s a funeral home to do?
And if the thought of keeping a family member’s cremated remains around your house gives you the heebie-jeebies, but you plan on doing something with them eventually, where can you keep them safely stored?
Sanctuary Reserve provides interim storage for those cremated remains until they can be given a final resting place. Some of the benefits for the family:
- It allows time to honor the grieving process so families can make a thoughtful decision on memorialization.
- It gives families the time needed to acquire the financial resources necessary to memorialize their loved ones in the way they envision.
- Storage allows time for a geographically scattered family to come together for a memorial service.
- It provides a safe place to store cremated remains and wait until another family member or a beloved pet also dies, so they can be memorialized together.
Sanctuary Reserve offers outsourced storage so a funeral home doesn’t have to take up space holding on to cremated remains for an undetermined period of time.
Just one more interesting service spotted at the 2015 International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association expo.
