There are lots of different things you can do with a loved one’s remains after Seattle, WA cremation services. You can place their remains in one urn, or you can split the remains up into multiple urns. You can use the cremation provider’s simple container first, too, and make decisions later. If you are considering multiple urns, here are a few instances in which that can work well.

-Several Family Members Can Honor Your Loved One

Perhaps your parent died and you have one or more siblings. You can split your loved one’s remains into several urns and each family member can honor them within their home in their own way. One family can place them in the kitchen, the heart of the home, while another family can place them in the living area on the fireplace mantel. Your loved one can remain with all of the close family members at the same time.

-You Can Speak To Different Styles With Urn Options

Your loved one was hard to describe with just one word. And you might feel that it’s hard to meet their personality and overall style with just one type of urn. Instead, you can get two or even more urns, all in different styles, to tell the story of who they were. You can split the urns up, or keep them together, and it can honor your loved one in new ways.

-Various Resting Places Are Possible

If you place your loved one in separate urns, you can secure several final resting places for them. You can bury each urn in a different location, for example. One might go in the cemetery while another rests in a memorial garden and so on. You can also take each urn to a different location for scattering. Or different family members can take an urn home to place it in a location of honor. 

-If Something Happens To One, There’s More

You want to keep your loved one’s remains safe after their cremation services. When their remains are in one urn that you keep in your home, most likely they’ll be okay, but what if something happens and the remains are gone? When you place the remains in different urns, even if something happens to one urn, you still have others that hold some of your loved one’s remains. They aren’t completely lost to you in that way. 

When you go with cremation services for a loved one, you can do whatever you want for them following the cremation process. It’s nice that there’s no timeline on the process. You can place them in a final resting place and have a memorial service right away, or you can put those decisions off until a little later. If you want Seattle, WA cremation services for your loved one, choose a package for that and then you can think through what you want and follow through on those things when you are ready for that process. The cremation providers can help with the service options.
