Alternative way of thinking

Saturday, September 12th, 2009

Talking to the living about cremation urns might seem a rather odd thing to do. It seems so at first, but in reality it is a logical and forward thinking subject.

Everyone who has gone through the devastating process of losing a loved one knows that it is a traumatic time when nobody thinks very logically. However, in life we pick out what car we want to buy, the home we want; we are very verbal about our likes and dislikes in clothes. Nobody finds that strange.

So actually expressing your wishes about what should be done in the unfortunate event of your death is not macabre or sombre. Think of it this way, you get to make your personal choice of cremation urn and make the important decisions so that your loved ones don?t have to.

It can be a way to let your family and loved ones know what you like and want should the unforeseen happen. It simply makes things so much easier for people when they don?t have to organise something like this during a time of grief.

State your wishes

You don’t exactly have to call the family together and state that you want to plan your funeral, instead simply browse the online gallery we have available at Lay to Rest and get ideas about what sort of urn you prefer.

There is so much choice at Lay to Rest from decorative urns, designer urns and speciality urns because everyone is unique and deserves to have a an urn which celebrates that.

We also have biodegradable cremation urns for those that prefer to be buried in an environmentally friendly manner. Cremation urns are a way to celebrate life and a wonderful, personal way for people to honour you.

A Fitting Tribute

Friday, September 4th, 2009

There comes a time in everyone’s life when they have to deal with the death of a loved one. This is an intensely traumatic time, so people often do not feel able to deal with the finances involved. Also, when in the time of having to make decisions about burial or cremation, people go through intense guilt if they have to consider the high costs of traditional funerals.
They feel as if they dishonour the deceased loved one by talking budgets. In this time of mourning they feel that they should not care about costs; after all this is the last way to show how much they honour and love that person.
This is natural psychological reasoning in a time of grief. At Lay to Rest we understand that. This is why we are always available to advise people and answer their questions, and show them how cost effective cremation urns can be.
Beautiful and respectful
The price of a traditional funeral with casket and all that goes with that is astronomically expensive. Cremation urns cost a fraction of that, yet they can also be far more personal. With the huge variety of cremation urns available on the market, there is no shortage of choice.
We offer cremation urns that you can associate with an aspect of the loved one’s life, or more traditional and formal urns as well as hand painted urns. We feel that the wider the variety is, the more at ease our clients will feel and the more appropriate their final choice will be. A cremation urn allows you to keep the memories alive and having a fitting tribute to your loved one, without incurring a huge debt in the process.
