Solidified Remains

Published: April 21, 2020 by Matt Bailey

Following the cremation of a loved one, you have the option of receiving either cremated remains or solidified remains. We are honored to be the first provider in New England to offer this choice!

Conventional cremated remains are gray and come in a granular form yielding about 8-10 cups of remains, while solidified remains are stone-like, typically white, and yield around 25-30 "stones."

Families planning for permanent placement such as burial or interment typically choose cremated remains. Families planning to take the remains home, typically choose solidified remains because they are comfortable to live with and easy to share with family.



You can order them directly from Parting Stone or ask our caring and professional team to assist you. We charge only the direct Parting Stone fee plus the cost of shipping the cremains. You can click here to learn more from Parting Stones.
