When you need to cremate a deceased loved one at a Cleveland, Ohio funeral home or crematorium, one of the things you need to think about is the urn. It’s traditional to simply buy a cremation urn from the death care services provider you sign up with, but you have other options. Here’s a look at how you can get an urn – and a look at which is the safest route.

Funeral Home

It’s convenient to be able to get your cremation urn from a funeral home or crematorium since it can be rolled into a package. Most death care services providers offer a wide range of urns that are intended for different purposes and that are made from different materials. So, you can usually find what you want all under one roof. Another benefit of buying it where the cremation will take place is that you can speak to staff who are experts rather than to staff who are generalists. Staff at a death care services provider will know all there is to know about cremation urns and will therefore be in a position to advise you of your options. You’ll also be able to get the urn quickly rather than have to order it someplace and have it delivered.

Other Sources

The e-commerce revolution has brought about a lot of choices since you can pretty much find anything you want online. In fact, even some large retailers now allow consumers to order cremation urns from their online storefronts. That might sound convenient, and the prices might be attractive, but there are some drawbacks that you should be aware of. For one, you’ll probably be dealing with staff members who are not as well-versed in the industry as are staff members at a death care services provider that knows all about cremation and urns. You will also be at the mercy of alternative urn providers in terms of delivery. What if you schedule a cremation and are left waiting for an urn that should have been delivered by a certain date?

Which Route to Take?

At the end of the day, you have the right to choose where you buy a cremation urn. You can get urns to suit your needs from many different providers. But if it’s important for you to talk to experts who can answer your questions knowledgably, then you might want to buy a cremation urn from a specialist rather than from a generalist.
