Lemmy Kilmister

Motorhead’s bandleader is famous as much for his hard-rock lifestyle as he is for his hard-rock music. His family and bandmates requested a creative urn that expressed both of those legacies.


Creating the Perfect Custom Urn for Lemmy Kilmister


During the planning process, both Lenny’s family and bandmates had expressed interest in designing a creative urn that would showcase Lemmy’s hard-rock lifestyle and music. It was decided that his cavalry hat, a key performance staple, should be the foundation of the urn’s design.


There are many iconic representations that were incorporated into the creation of Lemmy’s urn. The engraving on the front of Lemmy’s hat, for example, is a copy of his favorite tattoo, and the side of the urn has design elements from his most popular album.


The urn is on display at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood, CA. It sits proudly in a glass front columbarium, where his fans can come and pay their respects to this legendary rocker.
