Cremation urns are used to house the cremated remains (ashes) of a loved one. Natural stone has long been used to make funeral urns. Urns can be used as an addition to a memorial or monument at a burial or, alternatively, urns can provide a special keepsake at home for cremation ashes.
The selection of a cremation urn is a very personal process. Some people choose to share the ashes or scatter ashes in a special location. MMS Memorials can custom design large and small urns depending on your individual requirements.

Greek Decorative Urn 850 BC
Urns have been around for centuries dating back as early as 7000 BC. Without knowing the first true origins the oldest on record is from Jiahu in China.
There is evidence of the use of urns all through the bronze age. Cremation in Greece was common and the cremation urns were decoratively painted. The Romans would place their urns in a collective tomb called a columbarium.
In some European countries, the royal tradition was to separate the Kings organs from the rest of the body, place them into separate urns and then place the urns in various places around the country.
These days ashes are stored in urns and kept in homes of the loved one's family. Some even keep the urn so that their ashes can be combined with the loved ones and scattered in a desired location.
