Salem Funerals & Cremations offers a wide selection of urns for burying, placing in a niche or
columbarium, scattering, or memorializing.
Niche or columbarium
Niches and columbarium's are more relevant in today's world, and many churches and cemeteries
have built their own columbarium for their congregation and family. Columbarium's come in many
different sizes and shapes, which requires special attention during the urn selection process.
Salem Funerals & Cremations will assist you in making your decision with regards to the specific
size and shape of the urn.
Memorializing or for the home
Many families choose to keep their loved ones at home, and decorative urns are a wonderful way to
provide a memorial piece in the home. Some urns are designed with this specific intention in mind.
Many families choose to bury their loved one. Having a physical location to visit and remember and
honor the loved one offers comfort and peace of mind. Many churches today will have a designated area
for burying ashes as well. It is important to recognize that some cemeteries require an urn to be in
an urn vault to help with perpetual care and maintenance. Also in some cases because urns are much
smaller than caskets cemeteries will allow two urns on one grave space. Salem Funerals & Cremations
will help you determine what your options are based on your needs and arrangements.
Many families also choose scattering as a disposition. Cremation allows the family to scatter ashes in
multiple locations at any time. If your loved one enjoyed both the beach and the mountains, this option
may provide comfort to you in knowing that your loved one can join all the beauties of the earth.
Families may also scatter ashes in various places that hold specific treasured memories for a number
of family members. Salem Funerals & Cremations will help make your scattering ceremony a lasting memory.
A keepsake is an intimate way to keep a smaller portion of your loved one's ashes in a decorative piece
that can be saved and passed down among generations. There are many options for keepsakes with many of these
commemorative pieces are miniature versions on the original sized urns. You may also have your own ideas to
for this purpose. Salem Funerals & Cremations will gladly discuss these many options with you.
