Only a very small amount of ash is required – quarter of a teaspoon per piece is enough. A little goes a long way and you will be able to clearly see the ashes in the finished piece.
All unused ash is returned to you, along with your completed Memorial Glass® order, unless you request it not to be returned.
Once you have placed your order we will send you a kit which includes a small container for you to put the ashes in.
We ask that you post it back to us via registered mail. When we have made your order we will send it to you along with any unused ashes, also via registered mail.
The kit consists of a small container for the ashes, a return address label and a letter with instructions explaining how to post the ashes to us.
