Coffins and Other Products Used In A Funeral


« Previous


An Urn is a container that is often used to hold the remains after a body is cremated.

  • Urns come in all types and sizes and styles.
  • An Urn may be purchased from a funeral provider, cemetery, third party such as Costco or from an internet provider.

If you are planning on a visitation or viewing prior to cremation ask the funeral provider about renting a casket. For direct cremation, the funeral provider must offer an inexpensive unfinished woodbox or alternative container that is cremated along with the body.
