Cherished Urns About Us

Cherished Urns is proud home of a team of highly talented artisans and craftsmen. With years of experience, our team applies the very best care, attention, and skill, to each and every urn we craft. We’re a small, local business, and extremely proud of it. To ensure we bring the very best quality urns to our customers, we harness talent from across the UK, and overseas. The combined skills of our team members allow us to offer the highest standard of product to our customers. All our urns and jewellery are carefully designed by us, and then skilfully produced by our team of expert craftsmen.

I’m Mark Smith, founder of

Mark Smith, our founder, is highly skilled in metalwork, and passionate about the design and production of the very finest metal products. Mark’s high standards are applied by every team member, to everything we do. As such, Mark takes great pride in putting his name to our products. Mark designed his first custom-made urn over 10 years ago. He soon realised that his passion for beautiful metalwork could be put to valuable use, protecting the memory of loved ones who are no longer with us.

Each and every one of our urns is designed, and made, with quality and beauty in mind. This focus continues through the design, metalworking, decoration, and packaging stages. Whilst the quality of our urns is a key driver for us, Mark has been very disappointed to see the poor quality of other urns available on the market. It’s his opinion that an urn should be a truly fitting tribute to someone. Poorly produced, low-quality, and cheap products simply have no place in urn production.
