Urns for ashes

Urn is the term used for a vessel that is purpose made to contain the ashes of a loved one.

There are many different types of urn to choose from, some intended for permanent retention, whilst others may be simply used as a more temporary container until such time as you wish the ashes to go to their final resting place. We have a wide range of urns, please talk to us and we will be happy to show you the choices available.

Please find below some examples of the types of urns available.


This is a very basic container as supplied by most crematoria.

Wooden caskets

These are hand crafted and available in a selection of differing types of wood.  These are preferable where ashes are intended to be buried.

Metal urns

These attractive receptacles are fashioned from steel, aluminium, spun bronze, copper or brass and make excellent ornamental pieces where ashes may be retained at home.

Biodegradable urns and caskets

There are many eco-friendly options which are both attractive and functional – making the best of natural resources.

Natural caskets

Caskets made from natural materials.

Keepsake urns and jewellery

These small urns and jewellery items allow a small portion of ashes to be kept either in an ornamental container or piece of jewellery and we have a selection of these at our offices – please do ask to see them.
