Am I allowed to buy a special urn for myself?

Yes, it is common and you're allowed to buy an urn as a free decision for a deceased person. You can place the urn in the living area or also outdoors and keep your beloved person in dignified and special memory and in your thoughts.
With our small ones "Objects for memory" and the "Pendants" for the memory you can keep a small part of the ashes back or create a momento on the website "www.placeofmemory.com" . If you want to spread the ashes in a special place later, you can keep the urn as a special momento.

Can I "buy" my urn whilst I'm still alive?

Yes, you can choose your very special urn now and buy it here.
The urn as symbol and companion, in which you keep very personal things...

Which regulations are there to be aware of?

We are happy to advise you about the regulations and handling of an urn.

Trustworthy and empathic - contact with crematoriums and public authorities

Since 1998 we have built on our experiences in relation to the topics of farewell and memory, coupled with a holisitic philosophy that is foundational to our craft. We are always determined to treat your wishes empathically and we are aware of the immense responsibility which comes with the handling of the ashes of a beloved person. We would like to encourage the family members of the deceased to actively create a dignified goodbye for their beloved. The consultation is therefore friendly and discrete and we always nourish trustworthy contact with public authorities. This enables us to provide a professional administration of all necessary steps until the handing over of our special urn to the relatives and bereaved.
