Storage Options for Cremated Ashes

Cremation has been steadily rising over the last few decades and is expected to surpass traditional burial by the year 2040. With this increase comes the need for options for the cremated remains.

Cremation Urns

The traditional choice for containing the ashes of a loved one, cremation urns are a container usually made from a wide variety of materials. They are used for both indoor and outdoor use. There are many styles and types of urns. From decorative to theme based urns and religious to sculpted urns there is a diversity of choices to suit any need.

Urns can be displayed in one’s home or in a glass front columbarium niche within a cemetery mausoleum. They can also be stored in an outdoor columbarium niche or even buried in a burial plot within a cemetery garden. Some urns are made from biodegradable materials for the environmentally conscious which can be placed in water or buried in the ground.

Cremation Memorials

Cremation memorials generally refer to any outdoor memorial designed to hold the ashes of a loved one. These can be a grave marker, cremation bench or memorial rock. Each of these memorials has an integrated repository which can hold the ashes of one or two persons.  

Cremation memorials are versatile enough to be placed either in a cemetery or a private garden.

Cremation Jewelry

This type of jewelry has been around for just over a decade, yet it has created quite an impact. Cremation jewelry pendants look just like a normal piece of jewelry, but have a small repository for storing a tiny bit of ashes. The repository is usually accessible by removing a screw or plug in which the ashes can be placed. Cremation jewelry gives one the opportunity to have their loved one close to their heart. Cremation jewelry is available in many styles, shapes and metals and they are discreet enough so that only the owner knows what it really is.

This type of jewelry is the perfect choice when several family members wish to keep a portion of the ashes. It allows them to store the cremated ashes in a cherished keesake.
