Final Placements

The urn or personalized memorial will become the final resting place for your loved one.  The selection of this memorial compliments the final placement. Greenlawn Funeral Home offers multiple options to create an individualized and cherished tribute.

Families may choose a traditional burial of their loved one's cremains in a location of their choosing.

You may choose a space in a columbarium, mauseoleum or niche wall to hold an urn.  A columbarium is an above-ground building that houses cremated remains.  It is also composed of small wall spaces, called niches, that are about the size of an urn.  Each niche holds a single urn, though it may be possible to purchase a group of niches together to house multiple urns.

Fireworks Memorial
Greenlawn Funeral Home is proud to be the only funeral home in the Ozarks to offer fireworks memorials through our exclusive partnership with AM PYROTECHNICS.  For a unique and memorable cremation experience, you may choose to have a portion of your loved one's ashes embedded into a fireworks memorial or shell to be set off after a funeral, family gathering or celebration of life. 

Cremation jewelry or remembrance jewelry is used as a remarkable way to memorialize a loved one.  It is available in the form of pendants, rings, bracelets, necklaces, lockets, etc.  This jewelry can either be worn or displayed at your home in an elegant display dome or jewelry box. It is a growing trend today to hold a small portion of the cremated remains of a deceased in a piece of cremation jewelry.

Keepsake urns are smaller versions of full size urns and are made to hold a small portion of cremated remains, a lock of hair or ceremonial flowers.  Keepsake urns allow you to share the cremated remains of your loved one. Keepsakes can also be in the form of statues, picture frames, memory glass or captured moments.

Loved ones may choose to scatter their loved one's cremains in a special place such as family land.  The laws governing ash scattering differ between states.  The most important factor is to respect the wishes of the deceased, and the scattering of their ashes should be performed as part of their wishes, or as a legacy in tribute to their memory.

Take Home
Families may choose to take their loved one home.  The cremains may be put in an urn or keepsake memorial to display.
