Bereaved families in the communities surrounding North Wiltshire Crematorium can now carry a piece of their loved one with them with personal jewellery keepsakes.
The crematorium is part of Westerleigh Group - which has formed a new partnership with EverWith.
EverWith design, manufacture and retail a large range of affordable, high-quality, memorial jewellery which incorporates the ashes of a loved one.
The company says grief of losing a loved one is a very personal journey and one which everyone experiences differently. EverWith and North Wilts Crematorium believe some people can find extra comfort in keeping something of their loved one close to them, which traditionally involved keeping their photo in a wallet or inside a necklace pendant.
Thanks to the innovation in technology, North Wiltshire Crematorium are now offering local people the chance to order a range personal jewellery pieces containing some of their loved one’s ashes or a glass-like stone made from the ashes.
North Wiltshire Crematorium Site Manager Katie Capel said: “We are very pleased to be working with one of the UK’s largest memorial jewellery companies. A big part of grieving is finding a way to honour and keep their loved one with them.
“Creating a piece of jewellery with their ashes, whether it is a ring, bracelet, earrings, charm bead or cufflinks, will provide them with a personal keepsake to forever cherish.
“Anyone with the ashes of their loved one, even if their service did not take place in our crematorium, can still contact us to learn more about how their ashes can be used to create a beautiful and unique piece of jewellery.”
Jonathan Burton, Director of EverWith Memorial Jewellery, said: “My team and I are delighted that North Wiltshire Crematorium has recognised us for our beautiful memorial jewellery and also our growing status within the UK funeral industry.
“Our focus will always be to offer beautiful, affordable and extremely high-quality memorial jewellery, backed up by our brilliant trade and customer service teams.”
