Keepsakes are small urns designed to hold a tiny portion of ashes for scattering or burial at a later date. Keepsake cremation urns are just a smaller version of a full size adult urn. An adult vase shaped urn will usually measure about 10 or 11 inches high, in comparison, these mini size urns are only about 3" high on average and will hold a couple of tablespoons of cremains.
Some styles are available in medium sizes and are called sharing urns. The sharing size is the answer for families that want to divide portions of the ashes to save, scatter, or bury. Ash volume ranges from trace amounts to approximately 1/4 cup.
Sometimes families will add a piece of cremation jewelry as a memorial gift at the funeral while others may prefer to keep the ashes intact and stored in one container. It's a very personal choice and if you have questions about this process, please contact us for more information.
