Next Steps

There are several options for what is to happen with ashes:

Urns: Many people keep ashes at home in decorative vessels called urns. These urns come in a variety of materials and colours. 

Keepsake urns and cremation jewelry are smaller vessels used to divide ashes among multiple people.
