What To Know When Purchasing 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.

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.

Containers intended for an individual are the most commonly sold. They are meant to house the remains of just a single person and have about 110-220 cubic inches of holding space. Though the inside is standard, the outer layer is practically limitless in design, color and material options.

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.
