We hear everyday of innovative and creative ways of body disposition. Some are more practical than others. however, the current availability in Alberta presents three options. These include:

1.  Cremation- with cremation there still needs to be a plan for what to do with the remains after cremation.

2.  Burial – cemetery costs and cemetery product requirements add considerable dollars to your costs.  The Cities of Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan each have municipal cemetery services. There are many rural cemeteries in Alberta. 

3.  Anatomical Research - body is donated to the University of Alberta. There is not always a need for anatomical research. The University of Alberta reserves the right to decline donations. In that case, family is then responsible for disposition. This link provides detailed information with regard to procedures and legalities of donation.
