Cremation Boxes and Containers for Ashes

For some, it is important to place the ashes of a deceased loved one in a prominent place in their home. Others choose burial, or will place the ash container in a cemetery niche. The most common repository for cremains is an urn, but this may not be appropriate for every situation. For some families, a cremation box may suit their needs better.

Why Choose A Cremation Box?

Unlike urns, cremation boxes tend to be less ornate and can therefore easily be displayed amongst other home decor. Cremation boxes are also suitable for burial scenarios or for a niche at the cemetery.


Our Cremation Box Styles and Personalization

Cremation boxes are available in traditional wood, stone, or metal. There are various styles available as well. From simple, clean lines to embellished boxes to graphics. Many cremation boxes can also be personalized by adding engravings or photographs. Some choose to adorn the cremation box with an important message, quote, or saying that encapsulates the life of your loved one.


Cemetery Considerations

For families that are placing the container in a niche or space at the cemetery, most of the boxes on this page will work but you should know the exact interior dimensions of the space that the container will be placed in. Check with your local funeral director to see if an outer container is needed if the urn will be buried.


How To Choose The Right Cremation Box

It is important to consider both the size as well as the style of cremation box that best serves your individual needs. Decorative designer cremation boxes are durable and will withstand the test of time. Many of the chest styles not only look nice, but are convenient to fill, and will easily accommodate the basic plastic container that the funeral homes and crematoriums return the ashes or cremains in.  



Most of the cremation boxes in our collection are crafted from various wood species like oak, pine, birch, and walnut. Beautiful burl wood inlays, hand rubbed finishes add to the beauty. We also offer more affordable options made from manufactured wood, also known as MDF that looks like real wood and can be personalized with graphics and text. 


Stone, Metal, & Mother of Pearl

Styles for cremation boxes can range from polished stone to sturdy and sleek metal as well as glowing mother of pearl. Containers with nature themes are a popular option in this category. Themes like sunsets on the beach, eagles, and fishing and hunting pay tribute to the people that we love. This type of personalization can be a wonderful reminder of happier times.
