Why Use a Cremation Urn?

You already know that cremation urns are containers used to hold the ashes of a deceased loved one and are by no means a required purchase. Funeral homes and crematories often supply families with ashes in bags or temporary plastic boxes. That's fine if you plan to bury or scatter the ashes later; but many people prefer to honor their loved ones by storing cremains in a more personalized, permanent container that reflects what was special about them.

Purchasing a cremation urn offers individuals the chance to remember a loved one with a beautiful safe, sacred space worthy of the cherished memories inside. Additionally, family members have the ability to share and distribute the ashes amongst themselves if desired, so everyone can keep their own memorial and display it in the way they see best.

Once you choose an urn, what you do with it is your choice entirely. Some people like to display keepsake cremation urns at home on the mantle, or shelves inside decorative cabinets, or the dresser or book shelf, where it can be seen daily. Others choose to store the ashes in a secure place and then scatter them in a meaningful location at a later time. Additionally, some cemeteries even offer cremation niches inside columbariums as a safe place for family members to store the remains of their loved ones.

Urns for storing ashes are made with a variety of materials ranging from pottery jars, wood, brass and alloy, to granite, glass and even bamboo, or marble cremation urns. More recently, biodegradable containers have become more popular as well. These kinds of cremation urns for ashes are typically made with sand, salt, paper, tree bark, and other kinds of earth friendly materials and are perfect for a clean burial.

Some styles of funeral urns can also reflect the culture, history or interests of a deceased loved one. For example, Celtic Cremation Urns can honor Irish heritage. Or an American eagle funeral urn can be used to remember the sacrifice and service of a fallen soldier or veteran. 

Other Considerations

There are two other important factors to consider, beyond budget, before purchasing a cremation urn - size and storage location. 

How do you determine the appropriate cremation urn size?
In order to find the correct urn, you need to know the approximate amount of cremains that are to be stored. Customarily, one pound of healthy body weight requires one cubic inch of volume in a cremation urn. It is recommended to choose an urn that is slightly larger than the estimated need. Generally speaking, small cremation urns hold less than 140 cubic meters, medium urns 140 cubic inches, and large urns 200 cubic inches, and extra large urns 300 cubic inches or more. For those urns offered by Urn Garden, the volume is clearly listed on each individual product listing page.

Where will the cremation urn be stored?
The storage location of your cremation urn will factor into which type of urn to purchase. If the urn is to be stored in your home, then it is best to choose a style and size that is personally appropriate and meaningful to you. If the urn will be stored in a niche or a columbarium, it is important to know the dimensions of the space available. For burial urns, it may be necessary to also purchase a container or vault that can be buried without causing damage. When an urn is interred in a cemetery or other facility, please note that you may be required to engrave the name of the deceased directly on the cremation urn. As not all urns can be engraved on, this may force you to limit your search.

Pets

Pet cremation urns are available in a variety of materials, shapes, and sizes. Most of our urns can be personalized with a name, message, sentiment, or photograph of your beloved pet. 

How do you choose the right size pet cremation urn?
Size is an important consideration when choosing a cremation urn for a pet. Pet cremains generally take up less space than human cremains. So, there is not an equal ratio of one pound to one cubic inch. When factoring size, it is a good idea to add about 10-15 cubic inches to ensure all cremains will securely fit in the cremation urn. In fact, many families prefer to have a larger cremation urn in order to also store a memento such as collar or favorite toy as well.
