In the long run, we are able to achieve a tremendous sense of comfort and closure. For cremation using an ideal urn depending on how you wish to honor a loved one is an integral part of the process.

At GetUrns, we carry a versatile range of cremation urns each tailored to match varying family preferences. Here are some of the best cremation urn materials for your loved one:

 

Brass and Metal Urns for Ashes

 

Brass is quite a popular choice for urn fabrication as it is strong, malleable and resistant to tarnishing. Although they are a classic choice, modern designs allow families to find brass urns that best express their loved one's unique style and color preferences. Families often go for brass urns because of their durability. They can last for years whether at home or buried. They are also an ideal choice if you wish to personalize the urn as they engrave beautifully.

 

Biodegradable Urns

 

To honor the memory of a loved one, you may opt to bury their ashes or release them to the sea.Biodegradable urns are ideal for these types of burials and come in a wide range of attractive options. Biodegradable urns are made from eco-friendly materials that will break down gradually. For example, some are made from sand and resin while others are made of sustainable biodegradable paper. These materials leave no trace after they have been dissolved whether in a ground burial or water burial and are ideal for the environment.

 

Ceramic Urns

 

Dating from ancient civilizations in the Roman and Persian empires, ceramic pottery vessels have long been used as cremation urns. They are famous for their stunning looks and can be personalized to express something personal about your loved one. At GetUrns, you can choose from our wide range of ceramic urns, each customized to tell a unique story.

 

Scattering Urns

 

Scattering urns are cremation urns made to make the process of scattering ashes simple and respectful. Most scattering urns feature a tube design, where the ashes are placed. When you arrive at the scattering location, the tube is unsealed, and you can pour the cremated remains on the ground or over water. Scattering urns help share a special place of your loved one which enables you to strengthen the emotional bond you had with them.
