I asked my Deacon and he said he wasn’t positive, that he knew being cremated was okay, but didn’t know any further than that. I’d like my ashes placed into a BioUrn (urnabios.com/urn/) and for the urn to be buried in a forest or park. Is this going against the teachings of the church? Some people said they believed the ashes had to be buried in a cemetery still.
