Ashes for ever


Changing Trends

Changing trends in mourning has led to Douch Family Funeral Directors in Dorset introducing a new website for urns for ashes, cremation and memorial jewellery.

The ‘Urns and Keepsakes’ collection from Douch Family Funeral Directors ranges from memorial necklaces to urn keepsakes and are designed to keep the memory of loved ones alive.

Douch Family Funeral Directors have examples of the products in its branches so people can see, touch and feel them.

The online shop means they are easily accessible and already, the products are popular with relatives.

After a cremation, all or part of a person’s ashes can be retained and more people want to keep a physical memory of a loved one.

The products also include ‘cuddle stones’ which contain ashes, are meant to be held and are available in a variety of materials.

The Urns and Keepsakes range is the latest innovation from the Douch Family who have eight branches of funeral directors in Dorset.

Keeping up with change

Marcella McDonagh with the new range of products.

Marcella McDonagh, from Ives and Shand funeral directors in Parkstone, said,

“The way people mourn and chose to remember lost loved ones is changing. Rather than scattering all the ashes, more people want to retain some to keep their loves ones’ memory alive. This range is to satisfy that demand and it’s proving very popular. There is a wide variety so there’s something for all tastes. We have them in our branches but they’re also available at our online shop.”

“It is noticeable now that people are dealing with the mourning process in different ways and as funeral directors we want to offer people what they want.”
