Your loved one’s remains can be preserved in an elegant urn placed in a special spot in your home. This allows family members and friends an opportunity to remember that loved one and admire the decorative vessel. Metal, Marble, Cloisonné, Wood and Glass are the popular choices. Cremation Urns are available both in traditional and contemporary styles. Many contemporary urns do not look like standard urns - they have unique shapes such as a shape of a bird or a heart which look more like sculptures.
Scattering has become an increasingly meaningful way to remember a loved one by providing the family an opportunity to choose an ideal final resting place. Scattering urns are designed for loved ones who wish their remains to be scattered. Some scattering urns are made to scatter the ashes at sea and some are better suited to scatter the ashes over land and some are suited for both. Each state has its own laws on scattering, So as part of your planning, check local, state laws and federal laws that may apply.
Many cemeteries have urn gardens specifically designated for burying urns. The burial urns are interments where ashes are buried inside an urn in the ground. A small marker is typically added to the urn burial plot. For burial, metal or bronze is often the material of choice. Burial urns come in various sizes to contain ashes of a child, an adult, or even two people.
A columbarium is a place too for storing urns, so they give a specific place to visit the deceased. A niche is a recessed space in a wall or in a columbarium used to place urns containing cremated. They vary a lot in sizes. Some columbarium niches are designed for specific size urns while others may contain a double size space for two urns or even larger niches for multiple urns. We advise you to check with the columbarium or niche manager to make sure that the cremation urn you choose will fit within the space and meet any other requirement they may have.
