5 Easy Questions You Should Ask When Buying A Cremation Urn

To make things as easy as possible, we’ve broken it down to…

  1. Where will the cremation ashes be laid to rest?

    – Displayed in your home?
    – Scattered?
    – Buried?
    – In a Mausoleum?
    – Divided among family members?

    If you choose any of these ways to lay the ashes to rest, a wooden cremation urn is perfect. (With the exception of scattering, you’ll need to consider where you will be scattering the ashes and whether an urn is even necessary for that. If you do need an urn, it will need to be a biodegradable one, so check your local regulations on scattering)

    One thing to keep in mind with all of these resting places is how much space you have for your urn. Make sure your urn fits the allotted space for burial, display, or the mausoleum.
  2. What size cremation urn will you need?

    – Two Adults (companion)? CLICK HERE FOR COMPANION URNS
    – Child or Small Adult? CLICK HERE FOR CHILD URNS
    – Pet Sized? CLICK HERE FOR PET URNS
    – Dividing the ashes among family members? CLICK HERE FOR DIVIDING URNS

    The general rule of thumb when picking the correct size cremation urn is 1 cubic inch for each pound of body weight pre-mortem. So, if your loved one was 180 pounds, you’d need to purchase an adult-sized urn up to 200 cubic inches.
  3. Can you personalize an urn?

    – What would you like it to say?
    – Did you want a small engraved plaque?
    – Would you prefer a more detailed laser-engraved picture or message?

    When it comes to cremation urns, many people want to customize them in some way. Some may want to have an engraved plaque with a short quote on it. Others may prefer a more detailed inscription. Either way, there are many different ways to personalize an urn. If you’re not sure what you’d like your urn to say, here are a few ideas to get you started.

    One popular option is to have the name of the deceased and the date of death engraved on the urn. This can be a very touching tribute to your loved one. Another option is to include a Bible verse or other meaningful quote. If you want to commemorate a special occasion or moment in the person’s life, you could also include that information on the urn.

    Laser engraving technology makes almost any personalization possible, so jot down some ideas and send them our way!
  4. How to build a unique custom cremation urn?
