Learn @ Lakewood: Considering Cremation?

Saturday, April 27, 2019 | 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.

Thank you to everyone who attended this event! We're offering it again on Saturday, October 5, 2019.

More than half of all Americans are now choosing cremation, and even more in Minnesota — probably including people you know. Why is cremation so popular? How can you make meaningful memories? What’s possible beyond an urn on a shelf?

Join us for a conversation at Lakewood about cremation, including about the process, answers to common questions and what to consider when choosing cremation.

After the session, you can choose to take a tour of Lakewood's historic and new crematories, located in the lower level of the beautiful Lakewood Chapel, where more than 1,400 cremations are performed each year. And we may visit a few sites, indoor and out, where Lakewood has created space for preserving ashes in perpetuity.

About the Learn @ Lakewood Series Learn @ Lakewood is a new series of events that explore topics associated with death, dying and remembering. These workshops and seminars invite diverse perspectives and shine fresh light on meaningful subjects that haven't always been easy to talk about.
