Following the cremation of a deceased loved one, you will have to retrieve their ashes. Have you considered what you will actually do with the ashes after the Dublin, OH direct cremation is completed? If the deceased had let someone know what they wanted, then your job will be easy since you’ll simply need to honor their request. But if the decision is up to you and your other family members, then it will make sense to consider all the options available.
Here are some ideas as to what you can do with the cremation ashes of your deceased loved one following the body disposition.
A lot of people simply choose to hold onto the ashes. What this means is getting a cremation urn from a crematorium. A crematorium will help you choose the right urn by showing you your options and by finding out where you plan to keep the urn. For instance, a metal urn is a great option if your plan is to place the cremation urn on your back deck. It will stand up to the elements better than, say, a wood urn. So be sure to determine where you want to place the urn so that you can an appropriate urn to place the ashes.
Another popular option is to scatter the ashes. You can scatter the ashes on private property (as long as you have the property owner’s go-ahead), at a camping site, in a garden, on water, and more. Your best bet is to figure out what scattering option would best honor the memory of your loved one. If you need some suggestions, ask the crematory that handles the cremation service. They will be pleased to offer you some recommendations.
You can also get some cremation jewelry, which is similar to traditional jewelry. What makes it different from traditional jewelry, however, is that it contains a compartment that cremation ashes are placed into. So if you’d like to wear cremation jewelry in honor of a loved one who has been cremated, you can pick out something you’d enjoy wearing and have some of the ashes placed in the appropriate compartment.
