EWTN Catholic Q&A
Re: Funeral/Cremation
Question from JH on 05-29-2013:

Everything the person wrote about their plans for their funeral and cremation is correct with Church teaching. HOWEVER, in your response you said there was no problem even when they mentioned presenting a family member with an urn containing their ashes and spreading them over a mountain or over the ocean. The cremains MUST be buried or put in a niche in a cemetery.
