Your cremated remains can now be pressed into a vinyl record thanks to a company called And Vinyly. The service starts at approximately $4,315. That includes 12 minutes of audio per side that can include final words and memories, licensed music, or simple popping and cracking to 'hear' the ashes.

From there, buyer can choose different ways to customize the vinyl. Jackets can include portraits done by artists Jame Hague or Paul Insect, complete with date of birth, date of death, or vinyl stickers. Additionally, And Vinyly wil add pre-licensed loops or even customized music for an additional charge.

And Vinyly offers this service for 'people, parts of people, or pets'. The UK-based Andvinyly takes a lighthearted approach to a sad time, though the company also recognizes the seriousness of the event throughout. "When the album that is life finally reaches the end, wouldn't it be nice to keep that record spinning for eternity?" the site explains. "We offer you the chance to press your ashes in a vinyl recording your loved ones will cherish for generations. Live on beyond the groove!"

Surviving friends and family members can view the pressing themselves, which involves sprinkling ashes into the involved plate creation and pressing process. And Vinyly also offers to coordinate the funeral for an extra $14,400.
