What To Expect When Buying Cremation Urns

Every day, more and more people are choosing funerary options other than traditional burial practices. The reasons why someone would choose to be cremated are as varied as the individuals who have them. As a one's interment container, the selection of cremation urns is a very personal decision and should be a reflection of the person within.

These containers come in as many shapes, sizes, materials and styles as the people who are going to use them. The variety ensures that there will be a design that perfectly reflects the personality and tastes of any individual choosing this option. The first step in making this decision is to determine the capacity and type that most accurately meets one's needs.

The most popular choice on the modern market are those intended for individuals. The holding space is normally between 110 and 220 cubic inches, just big enough to house the remains of one adult. The design options in this category are only as endless as the imagination, with so many available colors, materials and styles.

The double grave site for couples can be substituted for a companion style container. These models are meant to have enough capacity to house two fully grown people, keeping them together through eternity. The actually holding chamber inside may be of open design so that the ashes are completely entwined, or it may be compartmentalized to keep them separated.

Keepsake receptacles are most often used when one's ashes are to be scattered or when they are to be shared between multiple family members or close friends. Dispersal is a permanent decision, so it is highly recommended that at least a small portion of the remains be kept. The vessel options come in many forms including jewelry, memory boxes, photo frames and customized creations.

The choice of materials is as varied as the designs. Some of the more common selections are done in hardwoods, ceramic, glass, marble, bronze, pewter, copper and many others. The environmentally aware individual may even have their receptacle made from biodegradable products, which is popular among those who still intend to be buried.
