What 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 most popular choice on the modern market are those intended for individuals. The holding space is normally between 110 and 220 cubic inches, just big enough to house the remains of one adult. The design options in this category are only as endless as the imagination, with so many available colors, materials and styles.

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.

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.
