John Lennon was cremated at the Ferncliff Crematory in Hartsdale, NY. He did not have a funeral service; instead, Yoko Ono asked that everyone who wished to do something in his honor spend ten minutes in silent remembrance of him the following Sunday (December 14, 1980) at 2pm EST.

Lennon's ashes were returned to Ono and it is not publicly known what she did with them. It is traditional in Japan, her home country, for the dead to be cremated, sealed in a container that resembles a wrapped gift, then buried in a family plot, but it is unknown if she buried or scattered the ashes or if she still has them.
