Contemporary and personal: Forever Urns range grows

JC Atkinson, the leading independent manufacturer of coffins, caskets and urns has expanded its Forever Urns range to meet a growing demand for more contemporary and personalised designs. Among the new additions are urns in the shape of a vase, an acorn, and glitter urns.

“The Memorial Vase Urn has been exceptionally popular”, says Greg Cranfield, Commercial Director. “Flowers are often used as an expression of our emotions, from our deepest sympathy to the greatest joy and sometimes they just let someone know we are thinking of them. Displaying flowers in the vase provides a physical medium to connect with a loved one and celebrate their life. It’s no surprise this clever design has been so well received.”

The Memorial Vase Urn with the appearance and functionality of a flower vase, is made from durable aluminium and comes in either white, grey or blue. The ashes rest in a securely sealed chamber at the base of the vase with a removable receptacle for the flowers.

Those seeking a more stand-out, eye-catching addition to their home can now order a glitter ashes casket in the nine dazzling colours offered in the matching coffin range: gold, yellow, silver, red, black, copper, blue, green and magenta.

The newest product in the range is the Acorn Urn. Made in the UK from recycled paper, this fully biodegradable urn comes in a choice of eight colours: Moss Green, Dark Green, Stone, Russet, Purple, Yellow, Turquoise and Dutch Gold Leaf. The urn base stands 22cm tall with a 19cm diameter top. 

Its specially designed lid and base are made from moulded recycled kraft and paper, with the stalk of the lid made from a twist of tissue paper. Finished with paper made from mulberry pulp and supplied individually boxed, it has a volume of four litres and a close-fitting lid which makes the Acorn Urn ideal for the storage, or burial of ashes.

There are more innovative styles in the pipeline for NFE 2022 says the business.
