What to do with ashes?

What to do with ashes?

When a loved one sadly passes away organising the funeral is often a very stressful time. That is why here at A Cain Funeral Services we work tirelessly to make it as easy as we possibly can for you. A question we have to ask is are you having them buried or cremated?

When you have your loved one buried it almost feels like a finally. That it is all over as the coffin descends into the ground. The option of cremation comes to no such conclusion. With cremation, you get a version of the body back.

Ideas For Ashes

Scattering Ashes

Scattering the ashes is the most common act carried out with the cremated remains. It is what people tend to think about doing the most. This can be a great idea to scatter the ashes in a place the deceased person loved. Such as a holiday destination, park or perhaps even football stadium.

Planted as a tree

Planted as a tree

Having your loved ones remains used to grow a new tree on the planet is a beautiful idea. You can watch it nourish from a young sapling into a marvellous oak, willow or cherry tree. The options are really endless. It also gives the family a spot to come and remember the deceased.

As a diamond

Companies such as www.lifegem.com offer you the chance to have an authentic diamond made from the ashes of your loved one. This is a special memorial to the life they have lived. You can choose from several different colours, carat size and gem cuts.

Cremation Jewellery

Sticking with the same sort of theme as above you can have the ashes turned into a memorial piece of jewellery. You can have a portion of the cremated remains encased so you can carry them around with you constantly. A great idea for a piece of jewellery to be passed down the family.

Inside a teddy

Choosing to have your loved ones cremated remains made into a teddy offers a cuddlier memorial than a classic urn. You can find out more details in regards to the memorial teddies here - www.achildofmine.org.uk

These are just some different but still special ways to use the ashes of your loved one. The range of choice you have is as wide as your imagination goes. We hope you have enjoyed reading our blog, be sure to check back soon for our next post.
