If you have already decided to go with cremation in Henderson, NV for your loved one, you’ve made one important move upfront. However, there are still things you’ll want to think over, including what you will do with your loved one’s cremated remains. While your funeral home and cremation provider will give you a simple container for your loved one after cremation occurs, you might choose to purchase a different urn for their remains. You may want something that looks nice for display in your home or at a memorial service or you might want to customize something to suit their personality. There are certainly plenty of options on the market. 

If convenience is highly important to you, it’s easiest to work with your funeral home to find an urn. They have a wide selection of urns readily available to you. However, you are not forced into purchasing an urn through them. You can also get an urn anywhere you’d like. If you don’t see anything that strikes you as just right from the funeral home, they can offer you resources for outlets they know to be quality and conscientious. 

You will want to consider what you are going to do with your loved one’s cremated remains. If there’s going to be a memorial service, but then you are going to scatter their ashes in a special location, you might want an urn that looks nice. However, since it will be used for such a short time, you might not want to go all out on costs. On the other hand, if you want to keep your loved one’s remains within an urn in your home, you want something that will work well with your décor and fit your loved one’s personality. There are many different materials available and you can even customize urns with carvings, pictures, or anything else you’d like. 

If you’re skipping the memorial service, or you don’t plan to have the urn on display, you can go with something simpler. You may consider a scattering tube, for example, to help you scatter your loved one’s ashes in a good spot. Or you could get a simple urn since the resting place is only temporary. There are also families who feel most comfortable burying the urns. They sometimes get biodegradable options so the urn will break down faster and not harm the environment with metal. 

If you would like to go over options for urns you might consider for your loved one once Henderson, NV cremation is complete, the specialists at Kraft-Sussman Funeral & Cremation Services are here to help. We can start out by figuring what size urn you need based on your loved one’s height and weight. After that, we’ll discuss what you want to do and where the urn will be seen so we can make further recommendations. Give us a call with your questions at (702) 485-6500 or visit with our funeral director to look over options at 3975 S Durango Dr Ste 104, Las Vegas, NV 89147.
