Basics To Learn When Picking Cremation Urns

A growing number of people are opting out of the traditional practices of burial rites. Each person is an individual and their reasons for making the choice are as unique as they are. Since this will serve a the eternal resting place for one's remains, shopping for cremation urns should be a search for something that truly represents their personality.

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 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.

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 materials used to create containers for one's remains are quite diversified. They are commonly made from copper, pewter, marble, ceramic, stainless steel, bronze and various hardwoods, just to name a few options. Biodegradable vessels are also available and are especially great for burials.
