Saying Farewell

It’s a sad fact that most of us loose someone close to us at some stage in our lives. There is little that can prepare you for the pain of bereavement. Many people find that, at such a difficult time, the practicalities of thinking about cremation urns can give them something tangible to focus on, and be a source of comfort.

No-one wants to have to think about cremation urns, or decide on an ash casket or ashes jewellery. Of course, anyone would rather have their loved one with them. But, as well as providing a tangible focus, urns can offer a lasting memorial, and an ash casket or ashes jewellery can be a uniquely personal way of ensuring the person you love is never forgotten.

Or you may opt to keep a small amount of ashes in glass. Finding a way to honour the deceased’s life and the relationship you had with them can really help the healing process. With the right ash casket, ashes in glass, and ashes jewellery, you’ll have a small part of your loved one with you for always.

Cremation Urns

With cremation rates on the rise, more and more of us are having to think about cremation urns and the like, however reluctantly. Cremation urns contain the deceased person’s ashes, and some cremation urns are buried, while others are kept as a lasting memorial.These days, there are a wide range of cremation urns available on the market, and choosing one, or an ash casket, which you are happy with is a uniquely personal choice. Some cremation urns, for example, look fairly traditional, but you may prefer an urn or ash casket with a more modern appearance. Not all cremation urns are used to hold ashes, instead, some relatives like to use an urn or ash casket for the safe keeping of a special memory of their loved one, such as a lock of hair, item of jewellery or other special item.

If you’re looking for cremation urns or an ash casket, bear in mind they come in various sizes. Standard cremation urns have a capacity of around three litres. Something else which needs to be taken in to consideration when you are looking for ash caskets or cremation urns is what they are made of i.e wood, pewter, brass or other metals.

Miniature Cremation Urns

However, if you are looking for cremation urns or an ash casket containing only a very small amount of ashes, you may want to think about miniature cremation urns, holding a small amount of the ashes or a small token of remembrance such as a photograph. This kind of much smaller urns can be a good idea if several family members would like a small memento of the person who has passed away.

It’s probably only when you are faced with a bereavement yourself that you start to think in detail about the practicalities of cremation urns. You may not realise, for example, that some urns have screw tops, while other cremation urns have their tops glued on after the ashes have been placed inside them. It’s possible to seal off the urn or ash casket using a special resin.

Biodegradable Urns

If you are very environmentally aware, or your loved one was, you may also want to consider an ash casket or urns which are biodegradable. This type of urn or ash casket will biodegrade once placed in water or earth, although this can take several months to happen.

But cremation urns are not the only way of commemorating someone after they’ve gone. Here are some other things you may want to think about as well as, or instead of, urns or an ash casket.

Ashes In Glass

Placing some of a loved one’s ashes in glass creates a unique and enduring memorial. The thing about putting ashes in glass is that no two pieces are the same, and so ashes in glass can be your own unique way of saying goodbye.

Ashes Jewellery

Many people find ashes jewellery, containing a small amount of the deceased’s ashes, a real source of comfort. In fact, people have used ashes jewellery for centuries, and ashes jewellery is a touching and popular way of honouring a loved one and keeping them close.
