What You Should 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.

The materials used, as well as the size, shape and style of the containers are quite diversified. The range of options ensures each individual personality can be matched to the perfect receptacle. To begin, it is important to consider exactly what one's needs are in such a vessel.

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.

Just as many couples opt to have shared, or side-by-side grave sites, they also have the same choice in cremation containers. The companion models allow for the remains of two people to spend eternity together within the same receptacle. The chamber within the vessel may be a single compartment where the ashes will be combined, or it may have a divider to keep them separate.

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.
