2 Things You Can Do With Cremains

When your loved one dies, you may choose to have them cremated instead of interred. Once you have your loved one's cremains, you might wonder what you can do with their cremains if you aren't planning on having them in an urn somewhere in your house or placed in a crypt at a cemetery. There are a lot of options open to you, including some that you might not have ever thought of. 

Scattering the Ashes

You may want to scatter the ashes of your loved one in one of their favorite places. If you are going to do this, you want to make sure that you are doing so legally. There are some places where you may not scatter their ashes. For example, there are many people who have enjoyed being at amusement parks and may want to have their ashes scattered there; however, the parks have banned that from happening, and if you try to do so and are caught, you may be arrested. There are other public places where you may not be able to scatter your loved one's cremains, such as city parks. If the place you want to scatter them is on private property that you don't own, check with the owner and see if they are OK with it. 

Memorial Jewelry

Another option open to you is to use some kind of memorial jewelry. There are all kinds of memorial jewelry that you can go with. One thing you can do is to find a locket that is specifically designed to carry cremains. You put a small amount of ash in the locket or charm and then seal it. You will be able to take your loved one with you wherever you go. There are other choices as well. For example, some companies create decorative glass jewelry. You provide them with some of the cremains and then the company can create some glass with them, including adding in swirls of color or designs. Then you can wear that jewelry whenever you want. There are other companies who can actually create precious stones with the cremains as well. This can be a good idea if you want to spread the memorial jewelry out among a large amount of family. 

When you lose a loved one, there are a lot of options out there open to you. If you have chosen to go with cremation, you open even more choices to yourself. 

For more information on cremation services, contact a crematory such as Neptune  Society-Riverside &  San Bernardino.

Learning About Funeral Home Services

Hi there, my name is Aislen Filick. Welcome to my site about funeral home services. When I lost my granny, I was unable to function as well as I needed to while planning the final services. The assigned funeral director gave me the support I required to finish the process. I received help picking my grandmother's casket and burial plot, writing the eulogy and planning the slideshow. The funeral home even handled creating the memorial cards. I will use this site to discuss all of the ways funeral directors make the planning process easier on grieving families. Thanks for visiting my website.
