What You Should Know 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 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.

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.

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 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.
