More and more families are choosing cremation. With the increased demand, manufacturers are developing an extensive number of urns with styles and prices appropriate for burial, niches, scattering, keepsakes or discreet placement in a home. Your personal plans for the final placement of the urn can play an important part in your selection process. Some urns are ornately designed for display purposes while others are very basic in style. Many of the urns can be personalized with engravings or laser designs – meaningful symbols reflecting the life of a loved one. Remember that urns are permanent containers for the cremated remains.
Urns are commonly placed in protective containers called urn vaults. Cemeteries will require an urn vault if the family decides to inter or bury the urn. Urn vaults protect the urn from being crushed and prevent the ground above them from caving in over time, much like burial vaults for caskets.
At McDougal Funeral home, we offer a wide choice of cremation urns from traditional to contemporary styles with a broad variety of materials – porcelain, metal, bronze, wood, cultured marble, brass, and biodegradable.
