Tips for Selecting the Right Urns

Published: June 28, 2021

One of the things you’ll need to get if you’re planning a cremation service in Kent, WA is a cremation urn. It might be easy to assume that all urns are more or less the same. And in some ways all urns are alike since they’re all designed to contain cremated remains. But if you dig deeper, you’ll see that one urn isn’t necessarily as good as another urn. So you’ll need to choose the right one. You might be wondering how to do that. Here are some tips to help you.

What Do You Plan to Do with the Cremated Remains? 

In order to get the right cremation urn, you’ll want to first determine what you wish to do with the ashes of your deceased loved one. There are many different urns available. But the type of urn you should purchase will largely depend on the purpose of the urn in the first place. Do you want to scatter the ashes in a special place packed with sentimental meaning? You can ask the funeral director for recommendations on scattering urns that will make scattering easier. Are you hoping to reduce any environmental impact? You can do so by buying a biodegradable urn or a water-soluble urn. These types of urns will break down in a safe and environmentally friendly way. Whatever you want to do with the ashes, there’s an urn that will help you do so.

What’s Your Budget? 

You will also want to carefully consider a budget. Talk with members of your family to find out how much the family ought to spend to get an urn. You can check out the funeral home’s general price list to see what urns they offer. You’ll see that there are different price points for urns and for urn vaults that will preserve the structural integrity of the urn if the plan is to bury it.

What Material Type Interests You? 

Another thing to consider is what material type interests you. You can go with a simple urn, but there’s no reason why you can’t get an upscale one. It really all comes down to what you want – or what you think your deceased loved one would have wanted. You can get wood ceramic, marble, glass, and other material types.
