Dublin, OH direct cremation

“How Much Do I Want to Spend?”

How much do you want to spend on a cremation urn? When visiting the crematory, ask to see some of the urns they sell. You’ll quickly find out that there are various types of urn and that they come at multiple price points. Once you determine how much you can spend to buy a cremation urn, you’ll be able to conduct a focused search using the crematorium’s price list.

“What Material Do I Want?”

Urns are available in lots of different material types. From wood to ceramic, from glass to brass, and from marble to some other type, cremation urns are versatile as per materials. Perhaps there’s a specific material that the deceased would have liked. You might also choose based on your budget since some materials will cost more than other types. A crematorium will be able to help you make the right choice given your material preference and stated budget.

“What Do I Want to Do with the Ashes?”

What is your intention as far as the urn is concerned? Do you plan to keep it at home? Will you ultimately scatter the ashes? Do you want to keep it on the back deck in an outdoor living space? Do you want to bury the urn in the backyard? Different urns will be better for some purposes than others. For instance, a metal urn will work better outdoor than will a wood urn. The crematorium you deal with will be able to offer expert recommendations to assist you.

“How Many Urns Will I Need?”

If more than one person in your family wants some of the cremated remains as a keepsake, then you may need multiple urns. This might play a role in your deciding what kind of urn makes sense. You’ll need to consider material types and price points to make a decision.
