5 Casket and Urn Options to Consider for a Loved One Who Has Passed Suddenly September 20, 2017

If a loved one has passed suddenly, not only are you stunned and grief-stricken, but you also might be in a position where the deceased has not made known their wishes for how to go forward with their remains. There are, however, a number of routes to take, and by consulting a reputable funeral home you’ll be able to talk to a compassionate expert about what might be the best decision for your situation.

From mahogany caskets to simple keepsake urns, there is a wide variety of choices to fit varying budgets and situations. Here’s a look at five casket and urn options to consider when a loved one has passed suddenly.

Wood Casket

Wood caskets are a classic choice. Like most woodcrafted products, the price range will depend on the kind of wood that is selected. They tend to be made from hardwoods like cherry and walnut. There are also high-end options available like mahogany. A funeral home representative can help you figure out what will work best for you.

Metal Casket

Options with metal caskets include bronze, copper, and steel. They are reputed to last much longer than wood.

Cast Bronze Urn

This type of urn brings a touch of the dignified. It has something of a classical appearance that speaks of elegance.

Keepsake Urn

These can be fashioned into jewelry items that will allow you to keep the memory of your loved one with you wherever you go.

Ceramic Urn

This type of urn can be a good way to commemorate a loved one who had a passion for the arts, or was a skilled craftsperson.
