Cremation Memorials

Cremation Memorials

After a loved one passes on, it is natural to want to create a memorial in their honor. When the deceased has opted to be buried in a cemetery, the memorial used is normally the traditional headstone or marker form. The memorial may not be as straight forward, though, when cremation is the deceased's selection.

Cremation is becoming increasingly popular. In fact, in the United States it has increased dramatically over the last twenty five years. Currently, over 28% of final arrangements are now cremations. The Cremation Association of North America projects this number to increase to 46% by the year 2025.

The grieving process is the same regardless of the deceased's final arrangements. The survivors will want to create a memorial to honor the deceased. The bereaved of those who have opted to be cremated have several options available for memorials. This need is satisfied through cremation memorials. The available cremation memorial options are varied, and also include those that are either indoor or outdoor memorials.

One of the most popular cremation memorial is the cremation urn. This urn securely holds the ashes of the deceased loved one. Cremation urns are available in a broad range of designs and materials. Traditionally, loved ones that want the urn for a permanent memorial will opt for the strength and durability that bronze has to offer. For others that want a less permanent memorial, there are other available options. Biodegradable paper urns will dissolve in water after two or three days. This type of urn is a very popular choice for burial at sea.

Sometimes those who are cremated also wish to be interred. In this case, multiple memorials may be required. The cremated deceased will be buried in a memorial urn. The burial spot may also be marked with a headstone, statue or plaque.

While memorial urns are both the more traditional and popular option, it is not the only choice available. Today, cremation jewelry is offering a way to keep the deceased close to your heart. This very personalized form of memorial is normally in pendant form. Inside the piece of jewelry, a small amount of the deceased's cremated remains is held securely.

These pieces of memorial jewelry can be even further personalized. If the piece has a surface that can be inscribed, a laser may be used to etch in an image of the deceased loved one. There is also the option of engraving a name or date as well. Memorial jewelry allows the bereaved the opportunity to create a last memorial in tribute to their loved one in a form of their choosing.

Cremation memorial rocks are also an option for the bereaved. These memorials are manmade boulders that have been created to look like real stone. The cremated remains are securely held inside the memorial rock. This memorial may be placed in any setting. Some opt for memorial gardens, while others choose the back yard for the rock's final resting place. These durable memorials are built to last.
