Helpful Information about Cremation Urns


Cremation Urns

Cremation urns come in an infinite number of designs, shapes and sizes, but it's important to know which one is right for you. As a result of the many variables in the cremation process the quantity of ash you receive after the cremation can vary but as a basic method of estimation you can say 1 pound of live body weight would equate to approx 1 cubic inch of ashes.

Cremation urns are a beautiful way to have a permanent tribute to the life of a loved one and they can have several uses depending on your preferences.

They can be used to hold the ashes, or if you prefer, they can be used to scatter the ashes, you can use them as a keepsake container for photographs, jewellery, wedding rings, a lock of hair, letters, or anything else that you consider precious and that will fit inside.

Or you can use them to inter the ashes, but it's worth mentioning that you should check with the proprietors of the location of the interment for rules and restrictions.

Cremation is definitely becoming more popular all the time, one reason for this is the lack of space in our churchyards.

Another reason is that it's thought of as being a more eco friendly option, as there is a huge amount of chemicals find their way into the ground as a result of a burial.

And thirdly there is obviously personal preference and these reasons are many and varied.

Cremation urns can be made of all sorts of materials, including wood, brass, steel, aluminium, plastic, copper, pewter, fibreglass and a number of biodegradable material. This is worth considering as what you intend to do with your urn may dictate what type you should buy, this point is particularly pertinent with regard to bio-degradable cremation urns.


Keepsake Mini Urns

Keepsake mini urns are more often than not miniature replicas of the full size adult urn. Many people find this the perfect way to divide the deceased's ashes amongst family members, and being small allows one to store them away privately with ease if you so wish. There are also heart shaped urns which are very beautiful and have a tactile quality which many find comforting, as the smooth, curvy shape of the heart fits perfectly in the hand. These keepsakes are also easy to display as a special display stand can be purchased specifically for this.

Keepsake Mini Urns and Hearts are all made in just the same way, out of exactly the same materials, by the very same crafts people as the full size adult urns, so you can be sure of the quality and the match ability of these keepsakes if you are to pair them with a full size urn.


Ashes Caskets

Ashes Caskets are generally made of timber, usually oak or mahogany, and they all have the advantage of being suitable for display or interment and being made of wood are also bio-degradable. The same consideration regarding the interment of ashes should be applied here as with cremation urns, so you should check with the proprietors of the location of the interment for rules and restrictions.

Wooden ashes caskets are generally of two types, with access from the top or the bottom. Caskets with top access are largely of a jewellery box design, with a hinged lid and either a magnetic catch or a little lock and key.  

Ashes caskets with bottom access usually have a screw fixed bottom section and will require a screwdriver to complete the filling task. We recommend that if you intend to keep the ashes casket it is advisable to seal the ashes in a plastic bag or container and then place that inside the ashes casket (this is often supplied with the casket)


Ashes Jewellery

Ashes Jewellery is enormously popular nowadays with more and more people discovering that there is such a variety of beautiful designs, this makes it possible to carry with them a very personal little keepsake containing a tiny pinch of cremation ashes in an elegant and discreet piece of jewellery.

The cremation ashes jewellery is mainly manufactured from stainless steel and to a lesser extent sterling silver and they can be finished either plain and simply or adorned with intricate engraving or inlaid with stones or crystals.

Ashes are placed inside the piece through a tiny threaded hole, a funnel is most often provided for this procedure, and then closed off with a little grub screw that either forms part of the connecting bail of the pendant, or act simply as a discreet method of plugging the tiny hole, we recommend using a drop of adhesive to make sure the plug does not unscrew.


Pet Cremation Urns

Most pet owners would insist their loving pet is just another member of the family, and as such are treated in much the same way as there human owners on their passing.

Cremation urns for your pets are available in a wide range of designs, many of them baring animal specific motifs and each style of urn is available in a range of sizes to suit the different pet sizes.

Pet cremation urns are made in just the same way, out of exactly the same materials, by the very same crafts people as the human urns, and many of the same considerations apply here as well, particularly the issue of whether an urn is bio-degradable or not.
