Our Ashes/Pocket Memorial Bear offers a deeply personal and meaningful way to honour the memory of your loved one. Crafted with compassion, it serves as a source of comfort and solace for those navigating the journey of grief and bereavement. Featuring a unique design with an inner pocket, this bear allows you to keep a small amount of cremation ashes or other cherished mementos close to your heart, nestled within the bear itself.

We understand the profound pain of losing someone special, which is why our memorial bear is meticulously crafted to help you cherish the beautiful memories shared with your loved one. Serving as a gentle reminder of their presence, this bear will always hold a special place in your heart.

Key features of our memorial bear include:

- Size: Approximately 32cm in height.
- Clothing Requirements: We recommend a minimum of 7-8 items of baby clothing for each bear. If these are mostly newborn sizes, we suggest adding a couple of extras. While 1 item of adult clothing can be used, we recommend 2 items for optimal results if possible.
- Resizing Items: If you plan to have items resized (e.g., cardigans or jumpers), please send one per keepsake. Please note that we cannot change items into something different. For example, if you would like a resized hoodie, please send a hoodie, not a sweatshirt. Additionally, if you desire the bear to appear to be wearing specific items such as shirts/blouses or trousers, please ensure to send one of each item per bear. For flat caps, you will need to supply fabric or a flat cap to be resized.
- Machine Embroidery: Each bear includes machine embroidery on one footpad, typically featuring a name and dates.
- Dust Bag: A complimentary dust bag is included for safekeeping.
- Stuffing: All our bears and animals are stuffed with 100% natural British sheep's wool.
- Variation: Please be aware that there may be variations in the finished keepsakes depending on the clothing received. We encourage you to review our photos to see examples of these variations.
- Order Process: Once your order is placed, you will receive an email with all the details for sending us your clothing.

Trust us to create a cherished memorial bear that honours your loved one's memory with grace and dignity.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much clothing should I send?

The amount of clothing needed for each keepsake varies, please refer to the information pages for these. We recommend if you are sending mostly newborn sized clothing popping a few extras in. You can mark these as spare, or make a note of the favourite items for us to prioritise. Anything we do not need to use will be returned uncut with your finished keepsake.

Do I need to wash and iron clothing before sending it to you?

All clothing should be in a clean state before sending. However, we understand smell can play a big part in a memorial keepsake so you do not necessarily need to wash it before however please unsure it isn't dirty. We also understand stains happen especially when babies are involved, don't worry about these we can do our best to work around stains. If we can't use an item we will return it uncut with your keepsake. Theres no need to iron everything, part of making your keepsake includes a lot of ironing so save yourself a job.

My clothing is really well worn can you still use it?

Possibly. The better condition of the clothing sent the better it will work on your keepsake. If there's a couple of small holes we can usually work around them. If you're really unsure please contact us and we can take a look.

Is there any clothing that cannot be used?

Most clothing can be used. The only things we definitely cannot use is leather or anything made from a loose knit. Items such as scarves made from fine fabrics may need additional lining to strengthen it, in this case there would be an additional charge.
