How do we receive the ashes from the crematorium?

Crematorium gives the family the ashes of the deceased in a plastic bag, packed in a temporary urn. It is usually made of plastic or cardboard. Crematoria also provide a service for pouring ashes to urns at the request of the family. If you are uncomfortable handling the remains of the deceased, you can provide us with a shipping address to the designated crematorium. You will then be able to collect the ashes already transferred to the correct urn.

When you do not want to unseal the ashes received from the crematorium, we offer several urns that will accommodate some “temporary urns”. This way you can put in all the contents received from the crematorium without having to open it.
