On the other hand, there are numerous expenses for services provided by external service providers, also known as third-party services. These include the issuance of the death certificate and the death certificate, the expenses for flower arrangements and funeral wreaths for the funeral, funeral cards and obituaries in the newspaper and the cemetery costs, if the deceased is to be buried in a cemetery.

Every funeral home in Chemnitz is subject to the current burial law of the state of Saxony. This stipulates that every deceased person must be buried in a cemetery. Ash capsules in decorative urns from cremations are kept in cemeteries in special grave types such as columbaria, urn row graves or anonymous grave fields. For scattering ashes on land, there are cemetery forests and cemetery meadows; at sea, there are specially designated scattering areas. The choice of cemetery is left to the relatives or to the last wishes of the deceased, if he or she has regulated this in a will or by disposition. Private burials on one's own property or taking ashes home are not permitted in Germany. The only exception is a Tree Of Life burial in Chemnitz, which is a tree burial on one's own property, where a portion of the deceased's ashes are removed by the funeral director and added to the soil of the planted tree.In a diamond burial in Chemnitz, a portion of the ashes can also be removed by the funeral director and formed into a diamond pendant through an external process. In this way, a part of the deceased can "live on" with their loved ones.
In a funeral provision contract, which you can conclude at any time at a funeral home in Chemnitz, it is regulated at an early stage, how the own funeral should look once. Here you can, for example, specify your desired type of burial or in which cemetery in Chemnitz you would like to be buried.

But even after that, the newly laid out gravesite requires intensive care.

This may be necessary, for example, if the relatives do not live in Chemnitz themselves or the grave care is no longer manageable for physical reasons.
