wood-cremation-urn

It was the ancient romans who first started using cremation urns. Urns are used to store the remains of those who have passed in a dignified and humane manner. In fact it is also customary to use urns for our pets as we see them very much as equal and deserving of a way to keep hold of everlasting feeling of oneness with the departed.

​ The significant advantages of non burial funerals have made the procurement of a tasteful and lovely urn a necessity after a death. But what to look for and what is available? Your local funeral home will no doubt provide you with options but with this guide you can get a full picture.

​We should all plan for death with a funeral plan. That plan could also see yourself picking out your very own urn! It's a funny old world we live in. Planning your own funeral takes a burden away from the nearest family loving members.

Urns are a constant reminder of the dearly departed helping to keep the memories alive throughout generations.

A biodegradable 'Urn' is worth a mention. The idea is that you bury the urn with the remains of your loved ones and mixed in with the ashes are seeds you chose from and a tree grows from the burial spot.
