Urns & Caskets
Urns and caskets are the vessels used in order for the ashes to be held. We offer a wide variety of urns and caskets to suit everyone’s needs including more traditional hardwood caskets, scatter tubes (made to make the scattering of a loved one more dignified) and even water caskets – the perfect way to rest a loved one’s ashes at sea.
It can be extremely important for some to keep a piece of their loved one with them following the funeral, which is why we offer to take a fingerprint, a lock of hair or a small amount of the ashes for you to make something special. We offer a wide range of options, including a discount from companies such as EverWith, Ashes Into Glass, Ashes Memorial Jewellery and Hold Upon Heart to name but a few. We have also teamed up with a local turner to make bespoke resin and resin/wood hybrid ornaments such as candle holders, vases and decorative bowls in which the ashes or can be integrated with.
As Neil served his apprenticeship as a carpenter and enjoys wood carving and wood turning in his spare time; he has made and turned a large variety of caskets and urns from locally grown and sourced wood. His work includes handmade mahogany caskets, chestnut urns, ash keepsakes and even yew candle holders that can contain a portion of the ashes.
