First, we will define what is cremation before we proceed to the meaning of cremation urn. So, what is cremation really is? Cremation is a process or a method of the final disposition of the body. This method is through burning the body until it became ash. These will serve as a funeral instead of the traditional way of burial. In some countries, cremation is an ancient tradition already. While here in the Philippines, it is already a practice of some of our ancestors but just recently legalized. 

  • Definition of Cremation Urn

An urn is a vase, with a cover, with a typically narrow neck above a rounded body and a footed pedestal. Describing a vessel as an “urn”, as opposed to a vase or other terms. Cremation urns generally reflects its use rather than any particular shape or origin. These vessels are used in burials, called as funerary urns that hold the ashes of grave goods. Vessels that caters or use in serving tea or coffee are often called “tea-urns”. Large outdoor sculpted vases that we see in some of our gardens are still urns.

  • Cremation as Part of Traditions

Cremation has a longer history than most people expect. It is one of the longest standing processes and memorial traditions in our history. Cremation has long been a controversial topic throughout human history. There are cultures and religions support cremation. Some find it lugubrious and even go as far as to say that it is an inappropriate disposition of the human body.

Some of the civilizations are using cremation urns (funerary urns or burial urns). After death, corpses are cremated or burned, and the ashes are collected and put in an urn. According to different research works carried out in different corners of the world. To study the role of cremation, its existence, and the various cultural and religious practices, they found that cremation urns have a significant role in different cultures. We can trace the history of urns back to thousands of years.
