For many, it is important to place a deceased love in a prominent place in their home, for burial, or in a cemetery niche. The most common repository for cremains is an urn, but urns are not appropriate for all. In those cases, a cremation box may suit their needs.
Unlike urns, cremation boxes tend to be less ornate and can therefore easily be displayed amongst other home decor. Cremation boxes are also suitable for burial scenarios or for a niche at the cemetery.
Cremation boxes are available in traditional wood, stone, or metal. There are various styles available as well. From simple, clean lines to embellished boxes to graphics. Many cremation boxes can also be personalized by adding engravings or photographs. Some choose to adorn the cremation box with an important message, quote, or saying that encapsulates the life of your loved one.
