    Thank you for sharing these tips! I am in the middle of planning my estate, just to be prepared, and now I have to choose an urn. However, I have barely seen any urns, so I don’t really know what I want to look for. I’ll be sure to set a budget first, and then look at the urns that fall under my price range.

    Thanks for the tips! My grandmother just died and she’s asked to be cremated. The information about finding an urn for a good price will be helpful. My grandmother wants her urn to look a certain way, so knowing where to look for discount urns is very helpful. Are there funeral directors who offer services to help people find discount urns? I’m already looking for a funeral director to conduct my mother’s service, so it seems best to get an idea whether that’s a service that’s commonly offered at funeral homes.

    Hello,

    I live in southern Spain close to Malaga. For my father I found the perfect urn:

    He always wanted to be spread under his favourite tree in his garten.
    But my mother still cant do it.

    Close by lives an artist who creates urns you can put in the garden or in a tree.

    I am so happy to fulfill my fathers wish and still have him close by.

    I really like your tip about looking at different styles and customizations. My grandma has been struggling with her health for the past few months and she has told us that she wants to look into cremation. Having something that is personal to her would be a great way to remember her. We will have to see what options are available.

    My mother is trying to preplan her funeral and has decided that she wants to be cremated. I had no idea that you could get cremation urns engraved and customized. I’ll have to talk to mom and find out what she wants. Hopefully, we can find a funeral home that offers cremation.

    Hi Sarah,

    Planning ahead is something we encourage everyone to do, I hope that your mom finds an urn that is truly special to her.

    Best Wishes,

    I hadn’t thought about where the urn will be sitting after the service. The urn’s surroundings can play a big role in honoring the past loved one. If the urn belongs where it rests, as opposed to looking as though it was a spot on the shelf where the urn sat, it has a more reverent home.

    That’s really cool that you can get customized cremation urns with different things to match your loved one’s personality and style. I’ve heard of lockets you can buy that you can have the ashes put inside of as well. It’d be neat to give those to important people after the cremation service.

    Thanks for the information on cremation urns. My grandmother recently passed, and we have been trying to find the right urn for her ashes. I didn’t realize that there were different urns for burial and display. We will need to decide which direction we want to go before choosing an urn.

    Susan, I can definitely see why you would want to have a set budget when planning a funeral. My great uncle has recently passed away and he has expressed his wishes to be cremated. I definitely think that we should find a funeral home that could help to create a memorable memorial service by commemorating all of his accomplishes and supplying an attractive urn.

    My grandpa is dying and has decided that he wants us to use some cremation services on his body so that he can be close to us always, and not just in a grave a few miles away. I love your idea to customize the urn in some way towards something they loved. Since my grandfather absolutely loves to sing and play his guitar, I’m sure we could find a great musically themed cremation urn for him after his death.

    I recently decided to try and plan my funeral services although I would like to be cremated to it is important that I know what kind of urn I want to be placed in. You mentioned to decide on a resting place or display so that you know how to choose a memorial urn that can go with the place it will stand. That is a great point for me to consider with the rest of the process.

    I didn’t know you could get an urn personalized and customized into many different things. I think it would be sweet to do this for my grandma. She wants to be cremated, and I would love to do something that represents her for her urn. Thanks for the idea! I will have to talk to my family.
