Cremation Urns conjure up a very traditional ‘Urn Like’ picture in one’s mind and there is a myriad of wonderful designs available. Caskets figure quite high on the thought process as well. However, with further investigation more contemporary and indeed some ‘avant-garde’ creations are available.
Finding the Right Urn for You
There is a lot to look at, such as colours, sizes, designs and other features.
The top is an important subject– some urns have a screwed lid, whereas others are sealed with glue. This secures the urn and saves you having to worry about the ashes having an accidental and impromptu scattering. Additionally, you must think of the size, standard cremation urns have a capacity of approximately three litres, (200 cubic inches) but smaller and larger urns can also be found. Do you want wood, brass, porcelain or one of the other materials available, maybe more desirous which come in different colours and with various patterns engraved? Would you like a traditional urn or maybe a more modern one? You may even decide against an urn and prefer a simple keepsake to keep something aside from ashes or for portability.
Instead of getting a full sized urn you can get a keepsake container or maybe cremation jewellery. Keepsakes can be a lot more discreet and only contain a small amount of ashes or something special to you such as a lock of hair or another meaningful item. It is a small token of remembrance which you can keep with you at all times. Cremation jewellery allows you to keep your memories of the deceased close to your heart, where it belongs.
