My brother has never been married and has always been alone. I will have to have him creamated if something should happen. Can I have his urn buried in my mother's grave for a fee as they were so close otherwise I dont' know if I could afford a plot for him -he has no money and lives on a fixed income like we do ? Do they allow that.

My husband and I will also be creamated, since it is now allowed. Can we both be buried in the same grave site in our own urn of course.?

I think more and more CAtholics are being cremated now as the money involved.

I know that the ashes can't be spread.

Just to give you the facts, and the Church's views on the matter:

Cremation was a pagan practice from the beginning. "Cremation societies" were started in the USA to make it more acceptable, and it has eventually caught on in popularity in this once Protestant nation.

It tends to destroy faith in the Resurrection of the Body, which is a dogma of the Catholic Faith.

The body was a temple of the Holy Ghost, and should be treated with reverence even after death. I've heard of COUNTLESS cases of people burying their beloved dog or cat. Meanwhile, I burn my trash all the time. (Do the math!)

The Catholic Church allows for cremation in times of pestilence. Other than that, it was forbidden.

We all know the mainstream Catholic Church has opened up to the Modern World since Vatican II, with uniformly disastrous results. We should keep that in mind.

While I do not support cremation, I realise that money is a huge factor, and often times prevents one from having a proper Christian burial.

I am not sure as to the answer of your question. I suggest asking a traditional Catholic priest, since each case is different.
