Retro tribute remains are cremated. A sprinkle of the remains is scattered over the sand of the colosseum floor upon which tributes continue to fight and fall, while the rest is set aside in storage within the catacombs. The names and districts of fallen tributes are carved into the stones of the arena wall (including those from the 1st Games), from the bottom up, as if their legacies had always been the very bricks upon which all of this was built.
In modern day there is a memorial columbarium for retro tribute ashes in each district's Hunger Games museum, separate from the exhibits, where urns are displayed and families are allowed to leave small mementos and gather for remembrance. Upon written request, with official government-documented proof, families of tributes may request that a retro tribute's ashes be released to them. However, the memorial urn will continue to remain on display in the columbarium.
As the Games progress and the colosseum goes out of use in favor of new and varied arenas, the Capitol will begin shipping remains back to each tribute's home district, as is done in modern day.
