        To help you with size and choose the correct urn Secure Haven have a simple step by step guide.



        1. Start by taking some digital scales and the container of ashes that you would have received from the crematorium.
        2. Place this box onto the digital scales and weigh the ashes.
        3. If your ashes are contained in a poly-tub, remove 230 grams from the additional weight

        4. Our rule of thumb is that for every kilogram of cremated remains, this equates to 1 litre of ashes.

        5. This means if you have approximately 3 kilograms of cremated remains you will need to purchase an urn of between 3-4 litres in capacity.

        6. Secure Haven have urns to suit all needs available from 0.75 through to 8 litre capacities.

        7. If you are unsure about sizing an urn please call us on 01277 353776 and we will be able to assist you.

Details

Return your loved one to nature in a beautiful Spiritree. Spiritree offers a poetic life-from-death metaphor as a celebration of the loved ones memory, transforming the funeral path from one of sadness into one of hope, all while promoting environmental restoration and awareness. The Spiritree is a biodegradable cinerary urn that transforms into a living memorial in the form of a tree. The two piece container is composed of an organic bottom shell and a chemically inert, weathering ceramic cover. The bottom piece holds the cremated remains within its internal concavity, while the top part protects them from dispersion. When planting along with The Spiritree, the growing plant gradually feeds itself from the biodegradable bottom shell and the calcium-rich cremated remains. In due time, the protective ceramic cover is broken by the growing tree, which becomes the actual living monument to the loved ones remembrance, be it human or pet.This Biodegradable urn comes with a free seed of your choice from the following. Beech, English Oak, Norway Maple or Ginkgo Biloba. The funeral director or crematorium can assist you with the interment of your loved ones ashes. SECURE HAVEN ARE THE EXCLUSIVE UK & EUROPEAN DISTRIBUTOR OF THE SPIRITREE.
  1. To use The Spiritree, dig a small hole in the ground and plant the sapling of your choice. Place the fertilizer packet next to the plant. The packet does not need to be opened and will dissolve over time, releasing important nutrients. You could also add some pea gravel to promote plant aeration.
  2. Place the base of The Spiritree on the ground passing the stem through the middle protrusion and spread the ashes around the central protrusion of the organic base.
  3. Place the ceramic cover over the tree sapling and the bottom part of The Spiritree and water adequately as per your tree care instructions. The centre must be covered with soil and watered on regular visits to nurture the new life of the tree.
  4. When the tree trunk becomes large enough it will break the ceramic top.
  5. The Spiritree is designed so that both the ceramic top and the organic bottom will degrade as part of the intended germination process.
  6. Secure Haven can also provide the full planting process at an additional cost if you contact the team and are local to Secure Haven / Pet Sanctuary.

Hope and Renewal
A lovely idea that gives a feeling of hope and renewal. I didn’t like the idea of just scattering Mums' ashes and also didn’t want to just put them into the ground and cover them up. The Spirittree allowed us to have a proper planting ceremony and now a place to sit by and watch the Acer grow as time goes by. Thank you Secure Haven for your helpful and considerate approach.
