Are urns only for ashes?
No, an urn is just a container. Whilst originally designed and purchased for storing human ashes, they can be used to keep other mementoes safe too, whether this is a lock of hair or the possessions of the deceased.
It is not uncommon for there to be empty space in the urn when you have transferred the ashes, you can add any mementos you wish that will fit in this space. We recommend to keep the ashes in a plastic bag if this is the case you can easily access the keepsakes at a later date should you wish to. .
Also, if you purchase an urn and later scatter the ashes, the urn is a perfect place to store mementos of your loved one. This could be a watch, jewelry, photographs or something else sentimental to you that is kept within their memorial.
