Arranging a cremation for a loved one can mean choosing a crematorium, preparing a memorial service, and choosing the right urn in which to place the cremated remains. Many cremation services have seen that people are not quite sure what options are available to them when it comes to choosing urns. There are a lot of options which can make things a bit confusing if you are not sure how to begin. There are a few suggestions that can make the process easier.
One of the first things to keep in mind is that urns have different uses. Some are just for transporting the remains from the funeral home or cremation service to where you want to scatter them, while others are meant for display. Before making a purchase, consider how you want to use the urn. Do you want to purchase a niche at a columbarium? Do you want to display the remains at home? Or do you prefer to keep some of the ashes with you at all times in a keepsake urn? Knowing the use you want will make everything easier.
If you have a budget, it is important to do a bit of research as to the different price ranges of urns. Prices can differ because of the material the urn is made of, its size, and many other factors. It can be vital to know this so that you can make the right choice. Cremation services in Lake Nona, FL will be more than happy to provide you with a price list of the urns they offer.
Most people think that urns come only in one size, but this is not the case. Urns for infants and children are much smaller than a regular sized, adult urn. The one for adults can hold the remains of a person who weighed up to 200 pounds. This means that if your loved one weighed more, you will have to purchase a larger one. There are custom options you can choose and there are also urns that can hold two people’s ashes. For those who want to be placed with a loved one after death, these urns can be the right choice.
Something else to keep in mind is that urns are available in many different materials. There are metal options, ceramic, and even porcelain. For people who want options that are bio-degradable, there are urns that are made of clay and wicker and many other environmentally-friendly choices.
You should consider all of this when deciding on the right urn for a loved one’s remains. Keep your budget in mind and think carefully on what you want to use the urn for.
