Basics To Expect When Purchasing 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.

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.

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.

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.

Whenever multiple people request a bit of the ashes, or the remains are to be scattered, keepsake receptacles are a great option. They hold just a small amount, which even when choosing dispersal, it is recommended that a little be held back and saved. This category features many creative design options including photo frames, memory boxes, jewelry and one of a kind 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.
