“When the album that is life finally reaches the end, wouldn’t it be nice to keep that record spinning for eternity?”​

"Live on beyond the groove" is the slogan of a company which allows you turn your deceased loved ones ashes into vinyl.

Vinyly - which has actually been active for quite a few years now - isn't cheap, with costs starting at £3,000 for the conversion into wax, which includes scattering the ashes as part of the pressing process, but what better way to celebrate the life of someone close to you than on a record?

You can either put licensed music on it, previously recorded spoken words or leave it audibly empty to revel in the cracks and pops as the record spins. The service also allows you to have personal sleeves designed, including details such as date of birth.

The UK-based company founded by Jason Leach says: “When the album that is life finally reaches the end, wouldn’t it be nice to keep that record spinning for eternity?”

Yes it would.
