Our urns are handcrafted in brass and beautifully finished. There are many different designs for children including tiny footprints and teddy bears. Some have classic forms and elaborate details. While others are simpler and less ornate.
If you are planning to scatter the ashes of your child, we offer a selection of small scatter tubes with appropriate designs. You can also use these to permanently store the ashes or to travel with them.
Child keepsake urns
We also offer miniature child urns. These little urns hold just a token amount of ashes. Many people find comfort in holding these tiny urns in their hands or having them nearby. Many of the designs match the larger urns.
Additionally, there are miniature urns with tea lights. These can bring much comfort contemplating the flickering flame.
The memorial bear is a lovely way to still have your child close and cuddle them. Inside there is a small pouch where you can safekeep a small amount of your child's ashes. The soft fur of the keepsake bear will calm and soothe you as you hold him. Also, his gentle smiling face will make you feel better, even at this sad time.
