If you decide to have cremation services in Charleston, IL for a loved one, you would choose a cremation provider and then look at the cremation packages. These packages have everything you have to have for the process. It’s good to know that even if you just choose a package, you will be able to give them everything they need. The packages even come with a simple container that will allow you to give them a resting place until you figure out a final resting place. However, you can add whatever you want to those packages and one thing many families add is some kind of container for their loved one’s remains. Here are some of the options:


Urns are the most popular and common option that people use for containers for a loved one’s remains. There are enough urn options that you can find one that functions well and looks nice for the right price. The price range varies quite a bit, but you can let the cremation provider know what budget you have in mind and they can help from there. You can also get an urn from other vendors and the cremation provider will still use it. They just want you to be able to honor your loved one in the best possible way, whatever that means to you.

Cremation Jewelry

Cremation jewelry can be a very special thing for your loved one’s remains. They take a small number of remains and you can place a bit of your loved one inside. You can get several of the cremation jewelry pieces and your loved one can be split up among various family members. These items can become very special and something you might even pass down through the generations.

Cookie Jars
