What is an Eternal Cross?
An Eternal Cross is a product constructed of special material blended with the cremains of your loved one. You can think of the finished product as you would your loved one. Unlike traditional urns that act as a vessel for storing cremains, the Eternal Cross can be used as a piece of artwork, serving as a beautiful reminder of your departed loved one. The concept of constructing a cross from cremains is unique in all respects. With the Eternal Cross, you will be reminded of your loved one each time you see it.
How do you create an Eternal Cross?
Your Eternal Cross is hand-crafted. We take a measured portion of your loved one’s cremains, blend them with special material for preservation, and craft them into a finished, seamless product. Each product is delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity, including your loved one’s date of birth, departure date, and unique serial number matching the registered engraving on the back side of the cross.
Can I memorialize my pet?
Yes, this is quite common for people with special pets. The process is exactly the same as with the Eternal Cross. Contact us directly to discuss our one-of-a-kind pet memorial products.
Do you use all cremains when you craft an Eternal Cross?
No. We only use a small percentage. You send us a measured amount to unite with the artifact. No need to send the entire amount back and forth. It’s common for our customers to request the creation of multiple Eternal Crosses from the same cremains. For such cases, the measured amount increases slightly. Petitioning the creation of multiple Eternal Crosses allows you to share the memory with other family members or loved ones.
Can I have more than one Eternal Cross made for my loved one?
Absolutely! We can cast a relatively large number of additional Eternal Cross using the same cremain source with a slight difference in the measured amount that we require.
Can I go through my funeral home to order an Eternal Cross?
You can work directly with any funeral home registered to be an Eternal Cross distributor. Contact us by phone or email to locate distributors near you. We also maintain a list of distributors on our web site: Click Here to see our Distributor List
What is a Military, Police or Fire Memorial?
Our Military, Police or Fire Memorials are designed to memorialize the departed Soldier, Police person, or Fire person in your family. They are constructed in the same manner as the Eternal Cross and come resembling each branch of the United Stated Armed Forces including Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines, or in the case of Police or Fire, resembling a police shield or the fire fighter symbol.
What is a Pet Memorial?
Our Pet memorials are similar to the Eternal Cross or the Military, Police, and Fire memorials. They are constructed in the same manner but have the appearance of the type of pet you have. We currently offer many breeds of purebred dogs. We have a couple of generic cats, horses, and rabbits. Click Here to see our Gallery of Memorials. Contact us if you don't see the memorial that best matches your pet and we'll see if we can make a custom memorial for you.
How do you create the Pet Memorial?
Your Pet Memorial is hand-crafted. We take your loved one’s cremains, blend them with special material for preservation, and craft them into a finished, seamless product. Each product is delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity and an engraving of your choice on the back.
Do you use all cremains when you craft the Pet Memorial?
That really depends on the size of the pet. Small dogs, cats, and rabbits we typically use all of the cremains. Larger animals have too many cremains for the small memorials we make so we will only need about one cup per memorial. It’s also common for our customers to request the creation of multiple Pet Memorials from the same cremains. For such cases we evenly partition the cremains.

What if I don't have a photo of my pet?
No problem. We have many photos of standard breeds of pets and will send some to you to choose from. Most likely one of the photos will be similar in coloring to your departed pet. Our artists can also be reached via phone for special instructions.
What is the process for having my pet memorialized?
Contact our local sales Representative or us directly and we’ll discuss your exact needs. Ultimately you will mail us your departed pet’s cremains; we’ll make the Pet Memorial and mail back the finished product.
Are the memorials breakable?
Yes. Think of the memorial as you would a piece of fine dinner-ware. While it is thicker than your average dinner plate, the properties are similar. If you drop the memorial on a hard surface most likely it will break in half. We recommend you purchase your Eternal Cross with the optional display case. The case will protect your family heirloom for generations. Contact us if you break your memorial. We might be able to repair it. If not, we will make you a new one with more of your loved one's cremains, assuming you have some. As a valued customer, we will give you a discount.
