A Brief Look At Ash 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.

Companion receptacles are just as viable as are joint burial sites. These containers are a bit larger as they are intended to hold the remains of two full grown individuals. Inside the housing, the ashes may be combined within one compartment, or that space may be divided so that they do not intermingle.

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.

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.
