Can I ask to have my pet’s ashes be buried with me in the same grave?

In most states it is illegal to bury pets in human cemeteries. Florida is an exception to this law in allowing human and non-humans to be buried together. Notwithstanding, it is a fairly common practice for the pet owner to ask the funeral director to secretly place the urn of a deceased pet into the casket prior to its being sealed and placed in the burial vault.
