Sorry to hear of your loss 🙁. Yes this is the norm. I lost my stepfather last year and was quite surprised to see his ashes in a clear plastic bag in a container with just a sticker with his name and cremation number. I don't think my mum was offered any alternative at the time.

I would suggest that ashes are scattered or buried in a more public space that will always be available to family and friends.
The ashes are scattered on Dartmoor the empty box is going to be buried in our garden out of respect as we didn't know what to do with it and it is biodegradable.

I just wanted to thank the OP for posting this thread which I first read at the time it was posted.

DH & my Aunt picked up Dads ashes earlier & they were expecting the large plastic sweet jar type of urn with them in.

DH just rang me & said he was in a bag, in a box.

So thanks to this thread it wasn't a shock to hear.

We are laying him to rest in a big pot my Aunt has in her garden & will grow flowers on the top. If she decides to move he can go with her.

When my farther died, we all went into the office of the funeral director.
They had a good number of urns to choose from, we just picked one that we could keep at home. When the time comes we will put my mothers ashes with his and scatter them.
At the moment my mum keeps him in the wardrobe! But Im sure he would have rather been kept in the shed!
