Urns and reliquaries

Your cooperative offers a very wide range of cinerary urns, including totally "green" urns, to suit everyone's tastes. They are available in bronze, wood, marble, granite, clay, porcelain, glass, metal and acrylic. They are sometimes of artistic design, and may reflect the various interests of the deceased person. It is this diversity that explains the often substantial differences in price.

After cremation, the urn is used to dispose of the ashes. It may subsequently be placed in a niche in a columbarium or in a cemetery plot.

Reliquaries are miniature versions of cinerary urns. They are also available as medallions or lockets. They contain the ashes or a lock of hair of the deceased. In this way many members of the family can preserve a portion of the ashes after cremation.
