Do you want to be buried, cremated, turned into your favourite vinyl album or Diamonds? Expert reveals the many popular ways to dispose of a human body

Other people are opting to be turned into their favourite records

  • Australians are opting to get creative with how their bodies are disposed of  
  •  People are requesting they be turned into diamonds, fireworks and records
  • These options are instead of traditional choices like burial and cremation

Forget about traditional burials or cremation the sky's literally the limit when it comes to what people are choosing to do with their remains after they die.

More and more people are requesting exotic options including being turned into fireworks, diamonds, snow globes and even vinyl records.

According to View Legal director Matthew Burgess the requests for unconventional body disposal options are surging.

'There is a significant and growing interest in alternative disposal approaches,' Mr Burgess told news.com.au.  

The new trends are relating to big bucks for a number of businesses who specialise in the 'body disposal' business.

Heart In Diamond who create 'stunningly beautiful diamonds from your loved one's hair or ashes' offer their services from $3,100 for a budget 0.10 carat yellow - orange diamond with prices exceeding $30,000 for their one carat plus diamonds.

Another method becoming more popular is cryonic freezing which was made famous in 1967 when Dr. James Bedford, a psych professor at the University of California became the first person to ever be cryonically preserved.

Southern Cryonics Holbrook in southern NSW is now set to be only the second cryonics plant outside of the US.

The estimated cost for people to become frozen will be an estimated $90,000 per person. 

Mr Burgess said there are up to five requests a year for people to be turned into snow globes post-death. Vinyl records are a popular request among departing baby boomers. 

Another company, Ashes to Ashes, specialises in making fireworks to spread the ashes of loved ones. 

But there are many more ways the human body can be laid to rest including mummification and being taken out to sea. 

Hunter S Thompson's ashes were reportedly 'shot out of a cannon'; Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards who claimed to have 'snorted' his father's ashes; and rap artist Tupac Shakur's whose former Outlawz band members revealed they smoked his ashes after the funeral.

I would say that that's quite unusual and interesting. Well, I understand all these wishes, such as to be buried, cremation, but to be turned into diamonds, that might get impressive. I wouldn't say my desire because I don't want to ever think of this. Still, about the vinyl album, that might be strange. Because just yesterday, I bought three crates that I saw on https://www.scatrecords.com/best-vinyl-record-crates-and-boxes/. They are of high quality and spacefull, and they look os beautiful and suitable for my room. Great page!

I'll tell you what's not funny, my moms past away and was cremated, and I saw her in my dream burning and like she was on the run from something or somebody.

Bury me, from dust to dust. Cremation means you going straight to hell when you crossover.
