What Size Urn Do You Need?
To ensure you're purchasing an urn that works for you, it is important to first know the amount of ashes and cremains you will need to store. Generally, one pound of body weight translates to one cubic inch of cremains. We would recommend an urn that is slightly larger than the estimated need. Small cremation urns usually hold less than 140 cubic inches. Medium urns can hold 140 cubic inches, while large urns hold 200 cubic inches. Extra large urns, usually intended to store two sets of ashes, can store 300 cubic inches or more

Where Will You Store the Urn?
The type of urn you buy will usually depend on where you plan on storing it. If you plan to display the urn in your home, we recommend you select a size and style that fits with the existing style and layout. If you plan on storing the urn in a niche or columbarium, you must first know the dimension of the space available. If you plan to bury the urn, it’s important to buy a burial urn that will remain intact even after it’s been buried. Lastly, some cemeteries require you engrave the name of the deceased on the urn itself. We offer a variety of different urns with free personal engraving. Regardless of your circumstance, Urn Garden can help you find the perfect urn for your situation.
