Our policy it to return cremated remains in a standard plastic snap-lock container. This container is suitable for indefinate storage and transport. Additionally, if the decedent is a veteran we place the snap lock container in an American Flag theme cardboard liner and if not a veteran , the snap lock container is placed in a cardboard liner with a beach scene.
Also our location in Florida allows a very unique opportunity for scattering of the cremated remains at sea, which is a service Solace can provide for you. We will provide you with the date, time and GPS coordinates of the scattering.
