Posted on: 27 December 2014


If you are someone that has chosen cremation as your burial option, choosing the proper burial container is important. There are many options available, when it comes to burial containers. Below is a guide to help you learn more about the options available to you so that you can make an informed decision as to which option is best for you.


Biodegradable urns are made from biodegradable materials. They allow you to be buried in the same fashion you would be buried for a traditional funeral. The urn will break down over time and allow you to become one with the soil.


Memorial urns are urns that feature a picture on the front of them. The picture can feature any image you choose. This will allow your friends and family to know that you are the person in the urn when they see it. This is great for urns that will be displayed on a mantle or bookshelf in a home.


There are pieces of jewelry that are designed to store your remains and allow your loved ones to keep you close to their heart at all times. There are pieces that are ideal for both male and females and you can choose from any type of metal you would like.


Pyrography can be used to burn images, phrases, or symbols into a wooden urn to customize it. Pyrography or wood burning allows you to add intricate detailing to the wood. You can have the urn created before you pass to ensure that you are happy with the way that it looks when you are done.


Marble urns are often a bit pricier than the other urn options that are on the market, but they have a very elegant look. The marble can be carved with any phrasing you choose to customize it to suit your specific needs. The marble is available in many different colors and sizes.


Ceramic urns are often viewed as the most creative type of urn. The urn can be molded into just about any shape you choose. You can choose to have a shell, baseball, car, or any other shape that means something to you. This allows your loved ones to be reminded of something that you enjoyed, when they look at the urn.

Any of these urns can be made quickly and easily, once you choose which one is best for you. Many funeral homes, like Peninsula Funeral Home and others, offer payment plans so that you can pay for the urn over an extended period of time. The urn must be paid in full before you can take it from the home though.
