“He is one of those people who would be enormously improved by death.” H.H. Munroe
Like coffins, urns are also becoming funkier and more varied in design. It’s possible to have all shapes and sizes. Before you check out the following designs, it’s worth remembering that there’s nothing stopping you from simply making a note of a container that may have sentimental value to you, to be used as your urn. Containers such as a jewellery box, teapot, or even a can of beer may be more appropriate!!!
Have an urn in mind for the ultimate celebration of your life? Then make a note of it in your very own Funeral Plan.

Share the love …
An idea we like, is for your ashes to be placed in several tiny vials and to be given out to your friends and family. Your loved ones can then go forth and scatter your remains in special places you may have shared. Nice… On the other hand, however, you could have your remains placed in an eight ball and your loved ones can continue to pester you with ridiculous questions…

There’s nothing stopping you from coming up with your own container for your ashes to reside in. A favourite handbag, boot, ornament or even a bottle of your favourite tipple can reflect your personality just as well!
