All memorials are available whether or not cremated remains are laid to rest within our cemetery or crematorium grounds. Memorial products are subject to a lease agreement unless otherwise stated.

Transforming Farewells into Flourishing Gardens
Bio-Urns offer a distinctive way to memorialise your loved ones. Our handcrafted living terrarium urns are carefully designed to cradle the ashes of those passed, blending artistry, nature and remembrance into every captivating piece. Each Bio-Urn is meticulously created, ensuring that it becomes a unique and personalised representation of your loved one’s spirit.
Bio-Urns are made by incorporating the cremation ashes into the soil base of the urn. By blending the ashes with the soil, the final resting place becomes the foundation that nurture’s and supports the urn’s vitality. The approach ensures that the ashes harmoniously coexist with the thriving plant life, fostering the start the start of a new eco system.
