Our Company & Facilities
Stardust Memorials is the USA's leading online cremation urn store. We're dedicated to helping people find the right cremation urn or memorial product to hold the ashes of a treasured loved one. We offer an unparalleled selection of cremation urns and cremation jewelry. Our choices are beautiful, made with care, popular with today’s families, and, whenever possible, offer options for personalization.
We know a cremation urn is a purchase no one wants to make, so the Stardust Memorials' team has a shared commitment to being as helpful as possible. To us, being helpful means: an easy to use website, urns that we would recommend to our family members and friends, lots of images and information about every product, quick tips and guides, and of course a friendly, caring customer service team that is available seven days a week.
