The United States Postal Service has a very helpful brochure titled How to Package and Ship Cremated Remains. You can find it here (html) or here (pdf). The pdf version is easier to read.
The brochure begins with this helpful information: the Postal Service “offers the only legal method of shipping cremated remains domestically or internationally.”
Just because I think the USPS should not be providing banking services doesn’t mean I don’t rely on it for the services that it was created to provide. I probably send more snail-mail letters than most people do, anymore.
I covered the related topic of burial instructions in a recent post on this blog and in my monthly newsletter.
