Glass Candleholder Urn
A simple way to remember a loved one is by the action of lighting a candle: whether on a birthday, anniversary, at a family gathering or a quiet moment of the day, to reflect and find comfort.
They will make an exquisite addition to any home and will hold your loved ones safely at home.
Available in Amethyst, Turquoise Blue or Emerald Green hand blown glass.
These Urns come with a bag which is specially designed to hold the average quantity of ashes for an adult.
Capacity: 3.5 litres (average adult)
Engraving is possible for an additional charge, £5 per character for smaller font on the base or £8 per character for hand engraving on the artwork.
Keeping the ashes
Many people keep their loved one’s ashes at home, some because they are not sure what to do with them, some because they are not yet ready to do something with them and some simply want to keep them close by, in the house. Sometimes, very well meaning, friends will give advice such as ‘it’s time to move on’ or ‘you’ll feel better if you scatter/bury them’. But only you will know how you feel about the loss of your loved one and only you will know when and if the time is right to do something, if ever, with their ashes. Until then these urns can keep the ashes safely and discreetly at home without you having to explain your reasons to anyone, if someone admires the beautiful urn then it is up to you whether you tell them or not.
Splitting the ashes
As long as there are no religious reasons it is worthwhile thinking about splitting a small amount of the ashes amongst the family or friends, it can help them to satisfy their need to do something with the ashes whilst you get to keep the majority with you at home. The Glass Urns also have keepsake options that are perfect for passing a token amount of ashes on to the other people in your loved ones life. This will give you more time to decide what you want to do as your feelings may change over time.
