Some people feel that cremation services in Baltimore, MD are impersonal, but that’s not at all the case. In fact, these services can be even unique and more personal than other options. The cremation itself is the same for everyone, but the details that come after the service are completely customizable. One way families often customize the experience is through purchasing an urn for their loved one. Funeral homes will provide a simple container for remains after cremation takes place, but many families like to buy an urn that means more to them. Here are a few things you will want to do to find the right urn for your loved one after cremation services take place.
Recognize The Budget
Cremation itself costs a lot less than a traditional burial so there is often more in the budget for an urn than you might think. But you will want to make sure you can afford the urn you choose. Urns go for anything from $100 to $2000 or more. You will want to know what range you are comfortable with to help you narrow down the initial options.
Consider Urn Size
Just are there are different casket sizes, there are different urn sizes and what size you need depends on the weight and size of the person who will be using it. You can also get things like urns that are big enough for two, if a couple wants to be together in that way later on. Once you know the size, that can narrow down the choices as well. The funeral home can tell you what size you need.
Look At Style Options
There are so many different styles that it can be hard to make a choice, but simply looking over the styles can help you form some preferences. As you consider your loved one’s personality, that can rule some things out. Thinking about how you will use the urn (will it show at your home or just at the services?) can also help you rule items out and put some on the favorites list.
You can also customize urns in a number of ways to give your loved one something even more special. You can have them engraved with a name, a quote, their birth and death dates, and anything else you want.
