Guide to Glass Caskets
By Thomas Morva
Glass caskets are not
commonly used for human burial, but they are widely used as funeral
caskets that display the body of the deceased. Glass caskets are used for
the burial of small pets. Glass urns are used to contain the remains of a
person who has been cremated. Some glass urns can be made with the ashes
of the deceased actually baked into the glass.
Glass caskets are often
used in funeral services to display the body of the deceased. The caskets
are usually completely translucent from head to foot. Glass funeral
caskets are usually laid horizontally so it appears that the person inside
is resting. The bodies can be left in vacuum-sealed glass caskets for up
to two days before they start to decompose. Glass caskets are not used for
burial, as the glass is not sturdy enough to withstand being put to earth.
Glass caskets are usually rented from the funeral home.
Glass caskets are much more
common for pets than they are for people. Several companies make small
glass caskets for pet burial, as well as glass urns for cremated pets.
Some manufacturers can make custom glass caskets built to the
specifications of the pet owner.
Glass urns are an
alternative to traditional burial caskets. These urns can hold the
cremated remains of the departed or they can hold personal keepsakes.
There are an endless number of shapes and sizes of glass urns. Some are
elaborately decorated while others are simpler. Some custom glass urns can
have some of the ashes of the deceased contained within the glass itself.
These urns are frequently used to hold keepsakes. The ashes are baked into
a pattern in the glass, with the keepsakes inside the urn.
Glass caskets are commonly
used for display during funerals. They are also commonly used for pet
burial or as containers of ashes. Glass caskets provide a nice alternative
to more traditional funeral caskets.
