Urns are a lovely, attentive way to keep your loved one’s ashes near and dear to you after their cremation service and before you scatter them, if you choose to do so. You can also choose to bury the urn or place it in a columbarium as a way to memorialise your deceased loved one.
Here at Bay Cremation Care, we aim to make it as easy as possible for you to bid farewell to your loved one. We understand that the grieving process is one of the most challenging experiences anyone will go through, which is why our qualified, experienced and attentive funeral directors will do everything possible to help you through the process of saying goodbye.
That includes helping with the cremation and, if necessary, arranging for a casket or an urn.
Part of our commitment to making sure it’s as easy as possible for you to say goodbye to your loved one involves ensuring you have everything you need for a meaningful farewell.
If you need help finding a suitable casket or urn, our funeral directors can help. Please take the time to let us know if you have any preferences or wishes for your loved one’s funeral, and we will help you find the right casket or urn to celebrate your loved one’s life and give them a suitable send-off.
While our funeral directors are more than happy to help you source and pick out the right urn, we can also use a vessel that you supply. Please don’t hesitate to let us know any needs or requests you might have. We are dedicated to doing all we can to help you through this challenging time so you can say your best goodbyes.
Urns are available in a wide variety of colours, shapes, designs and materials. They are commonly made out of the following:
Biodegradable urns are an increasingly popular choice for families throughout New Zealand. Ultimately, the best urn for your loved one depends on a range of factors, including your budget, tastes, and what you believe would be an appropriate tribute to their life.
If you have any particular preferences for your urn – for instance, if you would like one with custom features celebrating your loved one – please do not hesitate to let us know.
Many people choose to keep their loved one’s ashes in an urn somewhere in their home. This is an excellent way to feel as though the deceased remains there with you long after they are gone.
You may also choose to keep a small portion of the ashes at home after scattering the rest, interring (burying) them, turning them into jewellery or sharing them among different family members.
Funerals can be a confusing, challenging time when you find yourself needing to make difficult decisions while coping with loss and grief. Urns allow you to keep your loved one’s ashes in a meaningful, respectful place while you take the time to work through your grief and decide what you would like to do with them.
Losing a loved one is never easy. That is why the team at Bay Cremation Care are here for you from the time we transfer your loved one into our care until the moment you say goodbye. Our qualified funeral directors will be with you every step of the process to guide and support your family as you give your loved one a fitting farewell.
