 CLIFF BURIAL

Although the tradition is no longer practiced, it is interesting to note that “cliff burials” evoke a modern perspective. This ancient custom, most widely practiced by the Bo people of southern China, involves placing caskets carved from a single, whole piece of wood in small caves on a cliff face or on natural or man-made projections on the face of a mountain. Similar burials are also in evidence across Cambodia and even in some parts of North America, where native tribes believed that elevating the coffins allowed souls of the dead to linger and watch over the tribe. Comparisons may be drawn with present-day hanging urns, which allow the living to keep relics of the dead nearby.

We encourage families to create very personalized services. It is important to acknowledge that life that has been lived and to offer to the community a way in which to celebrate that life. By offering services and memorialization features that are personal and special, a unique life can be remembered and honored in an individualized way that is comforting to the family and friends. To learn more about the memorial and funeral services we offer, please call 609-737-2900, or visit our home at 21 North Main St. Continuous Family Service Since 1881.
