While a cremation urn serves to safeguard the cremated remains, it should also reflect the personality of the deceased individual.Many of the urns can be personalized to reflect the hobbies, lifestyles and other interest of your loved one. Urns can be engraved with names, dates of birth and death, and other special text.
Cremation urns are made from a variety of natural and man-made materials. They can be simple and quite inexpensive or intricate and as costly as a one-of-a kind sculpture.
Selecting an Urn
Before a cremation urn is selected, some thought should be given to the final placement of the urn. If the urn is to be kept at home, then something more decorative might make sense. If it is to be buried in a cemetery, then an urn crafted out of something durable would work nicely. The presence of the urn at the memorial service might also impact the selection.
