 Before you buy your bargain urn

  • Choose the correct urn capacity (cubic inches)
    Bodyweight before death determines the volume of ashes.
    The rule of thumb is 1 pound bodyweight = 1 cubic inch. So, if your loved one weighed 180 pounds, you’ll need a cremation urn that holds 180 cubic inches or more.
  • Check the measurements
    Check the height, width and depth of the cremation urn if its final resting place is in a niche, vault or columbarium. (See video.)
  • Match the urn material to your memorial purpose
    If you’re planning to bury ashes or scatter them over the land, a lake, or sea then choose urns made with biodegradable materials.
