Urns

For families who choose cremation, an urn is used as the vessel for your loved one’s remains. We offer a variety of styles that serve as a dignified final resting place following funeral services and cremation. Each urn is designed for its intended final resting place, including a loved one’s home, mausoleum entombment, ground burial or scattered in a location of the family’s choosing. Personalization options are available, including engravings, keepsake urns, keepsake jewelry and fingerprint jewelry.

Decorative Urns

These urns most often serve as a temporary urn when a family needs an urn for a cremation ceremony, but has yet to decide on a permanent urn. They are also used for displaying in a columbarium niche or urn garden.

Wood Urns

Cherry, maple, pine, oak, walnut and poplar are the most common wood used for urns, but exotic woods can also be used. Generally, urns are stained and often adorned with inlays and laser etchings.

Ceramic Urns

These urns are handcrafted from porcelain or clay that is burned in a special stove. The result is a glass-like finish that is covered with a hand-painted glaze. It should be noted that ceramic urns are very fragile.

Marble Urns

These urns start off as blocks of natural limestone that are then highly polished and processed into beautiful marble products. Marble urns are designed to withstand the elements for generations.

Metal Urns

Metal urns—most commonly bronze—are a durable, beautiful home for a loved-one’s ashes. Metal urns are often used when the ashes are to be buried, but are also displayed in homes.

Cloisonné Urns

These are highly detailed works of art. Handcrafted out of brass and enamel, each cloisonné urn is a handcrafted work of art gilded and polished to perfection. The cloisonné process dates back many centuries.

Biodegradable Urns

These environmentally friendly urns are quickly becoming among the most popular in the industry today. Made from non-toxic paper, biodegradable urns are most commonly used when ashes are to be scattered, especially at sea.

Bronze Urns

Bronze urns are suitable for burial, but because of their elaborate beauty, many choose to display them in an outdoor memorial. These marvelous pieces stand up well to the harshest of elements.

Companion Urns

These very special urns allow loving couples who have spent their entire lives together to remain together for eternity. The two main types of companion urns allow for the ashes to be mixed together or stored side by side.

Glass Urns

Ideal for memorial displays, glass urns are handcrafted by expert glass blowers. Some glass urns can even be crafted using tiny amounts of the deceased’s remains.

Infant Urns

These urns can be a great comfort to families who have suffered the loss of an infant or a child, or even those who have suffered a stillbirth. Many are specifically built to evoke the carefree, playful spirit of childhood.

Sport Urns

Sports Urns are specially designed to capture the spirit of someone with a lifelong devotion to sports and the outdoors. Many of these urns feature scenes of fishing or hunting, but they also can be shaped in the form of balls or other sports equipment.

Hobby Urns

Similar to Sports urns, hobby urns are specially designed to memorialize a lifelong devotion to a specific hobby. Those who are fans of needle crafts, for example, may be memorialized with a beautiful metal urn shaped like a ball of yarn.

Military & Veteran Urns

These urns pay tribute to America’s heroes. Military & veteran urns are available in a wide variety of styles and designs, but all are designed to reflect the values and achievements of American soldiers.

Art Urns

These urns are works of fine art that have been designed to include a storage place for cremation ashes. Some art urns are commissioned well in advance of a death to reflect the personality of the deceased precisely.

Sculpted Urns

Sculpted urns are beautiful mini sculptures that have been designed to accommodate cremation remains. And, since sculpture is a fine art, it is appropriate to think of these urns as being art urns as well.
