In a recent survey, it was learned that 1 in 5 families kept the cremated remains of their loved one in their home. Placing a deceased loved one in a prominent place in the home is important to many. The most common repository for a loved one’s cremated remains has been the urn. But urns aren’t for everyone. For many, a cremation box suits their needs perfectly well.
Cremation boxes, unlike urns, are typically less ornate and are more easily assimilated into the decor of the home. Many cremation boxes feature a small metal plaque inscribed with an important message or saying that encompasses the life of your loved one. Others are more artfully crafted and carved boxes, either purchased or designed and built by a family member.
Some cremation boxes look more like trophies won in competitive battle. With metal motorcycles, fishing boats, and other designs meant to visually evoke the life of your loved one, the sheer amount of options in cremation boxes means your loved one’s hereafter will be as unique as the life they lived.
