Urns and Ashes Jewellery ? A Lasting Tribute

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Cremation is increasingly popular and is now a widely accepted way of saying goodbye to your loved one.  The rise in popularity has led to an increase in the choice of materials, presentation and styles of cremation urns and other ashes jewellery available to grieving relatives.

Cremation urns have been used for thousands of years and you can find traditional designs and the option to make them custom made.  If you have made the decision not to scatter your loved one’s ashes then selecting a special container to hold the ashes or to provide family members a keepsake is a beautiful way to commemorate those who have passed away.

More families choose to divide the remains between the family in ashes jewellery or choose to put ashes in glass.  Another idea is to select an ash casket to hold the remains.  In cases where several family members would like a keepsake, then small vessels in the form of jewellery or glass containers can be a unique and stunning way to remember that person.

When choosing your ashes vessels think about whether it is to be displayed or kept somewhere private.  When that decision has been made you can better decide on the style and type of vessel.

Many people choose to personalise cremation urns in the same way people customise grave stones.  By personalising you can give comfort to the grieving family and add dates, special words or emblems to the urn.  By personalising cremation urns you provide a lasting tribute to a life lived.

At Lay To Rest we offer compassionate advice so that you can choose the most appropriate urns for your loved one.

Urns to Remember Your Loved One

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

There are several ways to preserve the memory of a loved one but cremation urns are a very popular choice.  Urns can be used to house the ashes of your friend or family member as a final resting place and allows you and other friends and family members to feel near to your dear one.

Cremation urns come in a wide selection of shapes, sizes and designs.  You can make the choice of urn truly unique and personal to your departed friend or family member.  There will be an urn that will reflect the style and personality of its occupier, therefore keeping the essence of that person close by.

An urn can then become the focal point for your reminiscences and quiet moments of remembrance.

Take time when choosing cremation urns and consider the following points before selecting one:

‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†Cremation urns come in a variety of sizes.¬† There are cremation urns that are large enough to hold couples for those who wish to remain together after death.¬† There are standard sized urns and then keepsake urns that will hold a small amount of ashes.¬† Some families choose to have small keepsake urns for different members of the family as a mark offamily reverence.¬† When choosing the size also consider where you will keep the urn.

‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†When selecting the colour think carefully about the personality of your dear departed.¬† Bright and colourful urns may reflect an outgoing and bubbly personality for example.¬† Materials such as wood and brass can be strikingly beautiful and different designs can add a creative dimension to the urn.

‚Äʬ†¬† ¬†When considering the material, think about where the urn will be kept.¬† If its outdoors then steel or brass may be more appropriate.¬† Glass or wooden urns can make a beautiful centrepiece indoors.
