    1. [TMG] Re: Burial vs Cremation
    2. Karla Huebner
    3. True, often people are cremated and then later interred (my own father, for instance); but this is still something that could work as a Burial role. Sentence being something like John Doe was cremated and the urn was buried on 1 January 2020 at Pleasant Cemetery. Not that some people wouldn't prefer two separate tags--that is an individual choice. I don't think my family paid much attention to the date my father was cremated (I didn't, and I was involved), but we did a memorial ceremony a few months later. Now, I do have a separate Funeral tag which has a Memorial role for that type of event. It all depends how you want things, as is the case with so much in TMG.
