5 Ideas For What To Do With Your Loved One’s Ashes


If you have recently lost a loved one to illness or old age, deciding what to do with their ashes can be difficult. Do you want to keep them with you at home? Would you like to bury or scatter them in their favourite place? With so many options to choose from, we’ve compiled a short list to help you decide what to do with your loved one’s ashes.

Turn Their Ashes Into Paint

One of the more unusual options on this list, it’s possible to turn your loved one’s ashes into paint and then commission an artist to create a beautiful picture with them that you and your family can treasure forever.

Bury Their Ashes

Burying the ashes at a final resting place is often the best choice for families, as it provides somewhere for you to visit and reflect on the memories you have of your loved one. Your local cemetery, crematorium, or memorial garden will have plots available that you can buy, allowing you to bury the ashes in an urn or box. You can then purchase a small headstone or plant a memorial tree alongside this, creating a special place that you can visit whenever you wish.

Scatter Their Ashes

If your loved one had a special place where they loved to spend their time, why not take their ashes to this location and scatter them? You can invite friends and family to join you, sharing stories of your loved one’s life as you gather in their favourite spot.

Have The Ashes Turned Into Jewellery

One way to keep a loved one’s memory close is to turn their ashes into wearable jewellery. Lockets or rings are popular choices, and having a piece of memorial jewellery can provide comfort and a tangible connection to them after their passing.

Keep The Ashes In A Decorative Urn Or Keepsake

If you want to keep your loved one’s ashes at home but don’t feel the appeal of a traditional urn, you could consider keeping the ashes in a decorative keepsake frame urn instead. At Remembered Forever, we stock a number of photo frames with a discrete ashes compartment at the back so that you can store your loved one’s ashes alongside a photo and personalised message.
