Cremation Urns & Keepsakes
There is a huge selection of Cremation Urns and Keepsakes for you to choose from at Virgo Funerals. You’ll see urns for ashes in a variety of styles and materials — from brass to ceramic, from crystal and marble, to wooden urns.
Most urns have threaded screw lids to secure the ashes. However, there are no rules when it comes to what constitutes an urn. Often the cremation urn will be lodged in a wall niche at a memorial park. Alternatively, it can be buried in the park’s grounds.
Urns for Scattering Ashes
The idea of scattering the ashes does not mean that an urn would not be needed. Bio scattering urns are designed specifically for the scattering of cremation ashes. These scattering urns made from 100% recycled cardboard. They are built for releasing the ashes, either over the grounds at a favourite site or for burying the ashes in the soil. Bio cremation urns are also available for scattering the ashes out to sea. A water burial cremation urn is designed to sink slowly and is typically released off the side of a boat in the deeper ocean waters.
Keepsake Cremation Urns
Keepsake Urns are designed to keep only a portion of the cremation ashes — generally equivalent to about a handful of ashes. You can choose from many different styles of Keepsake Urn. Most have a threaded screw lid. Some are covered in velvet. Solid brass is extremely popular. Keepsake urns are sometimes placed on display but in most instances, they are safely stored out of sight. It all depends on your personal circumstances and how you’re feeling about displaying an urn for ashes.One of the important aspects of having a Keepsake Urn is that it allows you to keep the ashes of the dearly departed with you, wherever you may go. At the same time, because the Keepsake Urn holds only a portion of the ashes, the remaining ashes could be scattered in accordance with the wishes of the deceased.
