Cremation urns (also known as funerary urns, cinerary urns or burial urns) have been used by many civilizations. After death, corpses are cremated, and the ashes are collected and put in an urn. According to research it has been found that cremation urns have a significant role in different cultures. The history of urns can be traced back to many thousands of years. An urn is a vase, often with a cover that usually has a somewhat narrowed neck above a rounded body and a footed pedestal.

The utility of the urn depends on what is to be done with the ashes of loved one. The ashes can be scattered on land or water or can be kept at home interred or buried. Some people keep ashes and use it in the funeral of a spouse or other loved one. There are many options and deciding what to do with ashes will create the choice of the type of urn to be used.

Finding the right urns for ashes means:

  1. If the plan to scatter the ashes, then traveling to a location is involved. There should not be a problem with placing urn in the tray at the airport to let them scan the urn. The airport rule is not to open – weather it is brass or a wood urn as long as the relevant papers are available in support.
  2. Many of our urns are unique and can’t be found anywhere. The reason is that we create our products and hence, you may never have seen these products before.

  4. Some urns are for water burial and others for land burial and are available in several shapes and sizes.
  5. There are urns that are meant to be used for scattering ashes in the ocean or a river.
