One of the biggest reasons that Warman, SK cremation services have a good reputation is because our clients have lots of freedom to design an ideal memorial. At Cherished Memories Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc, we specialize in working with our families to develop a personalized and unique tribute after cremation. In this article, we’ll look at the most popular choices for post-cremation memorials at our facilities and on your schedule.
A Permanent Residence
Cemeteries aren’t just for earth burial anymore, as more people are choosing to pair cremation with a traditional funeral. The ashes will be stored in a cremation vault and laid to rest in a similar ceremony to a burial, or can be laid to rest in an above-ground mausoleum or scattered in the cemetery’s in-house scattering garden. This is ideal for when a family has a plot and wants to keep everyone together.
The Traditional Urn
The classic cremation urn is still the most popular choice for bringing ashes home, and it’s not hard to see why. These urns come in hundreds of styles, can be personalized with inscriptions, and are perfect for a place of pride on the mantle where everyone can be reminded of their loved one’s presence. The new urn designs are spill-proof, meaning you can display them proudly without worrying that a frisky cat will knock them over.
Goodbyes in the Wind
A popular choice for families after cremation services is to take the ashes home and then arrange a private scattering ceremony at a beloved location. We offer special scattering urns that allow for a controlled release even in windier weather. Cremation ashes are sterile, so it’s legal to scatter them in any public location. If you’re interested in a scattering at a private location like a ballpark, we can put you in contact with the manager to discuss a time.
Many families want to take the ashes home, but prefer to split them across more than one household. Ideal for bigger families, we offer a selection of miniature urns that are perfect for dividing the ashes between close family members. If you prefer a more portable option, we offer a selection of vials and pendants that can hold a pinch of ashes so you can wear them like jewelry and carry them with you at all times.
Cremation ashes can be incorporated into any number of substances, making it easy to create a personalized tribute. Artists often mix them with ink or paint to create a unique artwork with a personal touch, and an experienced tattoo artist can mix them in with ink for a permanent tribute on the skin. Third-party companies can even compress the ashes into a synthetic diamond that makes for a stunning and near-unbreakable tribute.
