Cremation Urns

What is a cremation urn?

A cremation urn is a wood, metal, stone, plastic, or composition container or a container of other material that is designed for encasing cremated ashes. Urns come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and designs. They are made out of almost any material, although metal or stone vase styles and wooden boxes or chests are usually a common choice.

Urn types

  • Standard Urn: A container that holds the cremated remains of one individual. It is typically sized at the industry standard of 200 cubic inches or larger. 
  • Companion Urn: A container that holds the cremated remains of two individuals. It is typically sized at double the amount as a standard urn.
  • Keepsake Urn: A container that holds a small amount of cremains. Family members use them as a way to divide the remains among themselves; as a keepsake for when ashes are scattered, buried, or deposited in a niche; or to keep bedside when the standard-sized urn is kept on a mantle.
  • Scattering Urn: A container that is either biodegradable for water disposition or with an easy-opening top or bottom for casting the remains out into nature.
  • Temporary Urn: The container that holds the cremated remains when returned to the relatives of the deceased by the crematorium. It is usually a sturdy plastic or cardboard material. A durable plastic bag within the temporary urn holds the ashes until they are buried or transferred to a permanent urn.
