    What's The Difference In A Graveyard And Cemetery?

    The term "cemetery," which originates from the Greek word "v," which means "sleeping place," suggests that the land in question is specifically designated as a burial ground. The term was first used to refer to the Roman catacombs. Although the terms graveyard and cemetery are frequently used interchangeably, the primary definition of a graveyard is a burial ground that is contained within a churchyard. Grieving the loss of a loved one? Peter Tziotzis Orthodox Funerals offers cremation services for those who wish to have their loved ones remains disposed in a respectful and dignified manner. 

    Funeral FAQs

    Credit card debt doesn't follow you to the grave. It lives on and is either paid off through estate assets or becomes the joint account holder's or co-signer's responsibility.

    Many banks have arrangements in place to help pay for funeral expenses from the deceased person's account (you should contact the bank to find out more). You may also need to get access for living expenses, at least until a social welfare payment is awarded.

    If you don't set up anything before your passing, then your accounts will go to probate and be distributed according to your state's laws. In most states, an executor will be appointed who will be responsible for paying off any creditors of the deceased.

    A legal document called a grant of representation may be required before the account can be closed, depending on how much money is in the account. A Grant of Representation is not needed for joint bank accounts, as the funds will pass automatically to the surviving account holder.

    People are often surprised by how much cremated remains they get back after a body has been cremated. All bones are left they do not evaporate. The bones are then reduced in size to a granular consistency.

    How Do I Find Where Someone Is Buried In Victoria?

    On the website of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), there is a page titled "Cemetery Search" that provides contact information for various cemetery trusts. You can also look at genealogical websites such as 'Find a Grave,' which is a website that collects cemetery records and photographs of gravestones.

    What Is The Difference Between A Coffin And A Casket?

    funeral 26

    A casket is very similar to a coffin in that both are specially designed boxes that are used to hold, transport, and ultimately bury the remains of the deceased. The most notable distinction is brought about by the form of the container. A coffin, in contrast to a casket, has six sides, and the top of the container is wider than the bottom. Caskets only have four sides.

    Can I Be Buried Without A Casket?

    Is a Coffin Necessary for a Burial in the Ground, or Is Direct Burial Allowed? The laws in each state are different, but the vast majority mandate that the deceased be buried inside of a casket. You also have the option of being wrapped in a plain cloth shroud when you are laid to rest. The use of a casket and a burial vault is often required in order to be buried in certain cemeteries.

    When a loved one dies, the last thing you want to worry about is arranging their funeral. Peter Tziotzis Orthodox Funerals offers a professional and compassionate Melbourne Orthodox Funeral Services that takes care of all the arrangements for you.
