Although Tower Hill is a garden of great beauty and inspiring tranquility it is not, in the classic sense, a consecrated cemetery. Yet, since the garden first opened, members and friends have expressed their desire that Tower Hill be the final resting place of cremated remains (cremains) of family members and/or companion animals.
The most requested preference is to place cremains in contact with the roots of trees or other plants. The belief—and reality— is that cremains contribute to the health of the soil and the added nutrients are, in part, absorbed by the plant, generating a "living tribute" to the departed.
