Keepsake urns hold a small quantity of ashes. Keepsakes come in many styles and types so there will always be something that will perfectly suit your wishes for a lovely memento of your loved one.
Some keepsakes are designed to keep close by you, as a comforting reminder. Keepsakes can also be a way for several members of the family to share ashes between them as a remembrance. Some people who decide to scatter their loved one’s ashes also like to keep a tiny amount to put into a keepsake.
Keepsakes can often be personalised with engraving, photos etc. Others can also hold belongings or mementos, such as a lock of hair, a small piece of jewellery or even some favourite scent.
It’s good to think about what you might wish to do with your loved one’s ashes when they are returned to you. If you find you can’t decide right away, don’t feel pressured. It’s better to take your time and make the right choice for you.
