What To Know When Purchasing Cremation Urns

A growing number of individuals are opting to bypass traditional burials for another practice. Each person has their own reasons for making the decision for being cremated. As uniquely personal as those motivations are, the many styles of cremation urns available are designed to accurately reflect them all.

The combinations of materials, styles, sizes and shapes available create an infinite number of design possibilities. Such diversity means that for every unique personality, there will be a receptacle option that genuinely represents it. To begin one's search for the perfect container, it must first be determined the category that is the best fit.

The individual sized container is the most popular style on the market today. With a holding capacity of somewhere between 110 and 220 cubic inches, it is large enough to hold the ashes of a single adult. This option comes in many varied designs, materials, colors with few limitations of how creative they may be.

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.

When one chooses to have their ashes scattered or shared between multiple survivors, keepsake receptacles are the best choice. It is always recommended that a bit of the remains be preserved since dispersal is irreversible. This category has a variety of design possibilities such as memory boxes, photo frames, jewelry or customized containers.

A lot of different materials can be used to create these containers. Some popular choices are pewter, copper, stainless steel, bronze, hardwoods, marble, ceramic and glass. Biodegradable options are very popular, especially for those choosing to have the ashes buried and are environmentally conscious.
