Companion Natural Burial Urn: Wistman
A companion natural burial urn, for the ashes of two people. The solid oak that shows off its character and beauty. Completely handmade in Devon, England by our local craftsman.
This companion wooden cremation urn is truly unique. With smooth curving lines it is both subtle and stylish. Choose your finish from either Danish natural oil for a rich sheen or wax from the carpenter’s own bees for a more subtle sheen.
We can also provide you with an ashes bag hand sewn in Devon for a small additional charge, this is helpful if you want to potentially move the ashes at a later date. Please note these bags may not be suitable for all natural burial grounds.
You can also choose an inscription of up to 70 characters directly inscribed onto the wood.
