WHAT SIZE URN DO I NEED?
A cremation urn's volume is measured in cubic inches and refers to the amount of space inside the urn. You will need an urn with at least one cubic inch of space for every pound of body weight prior to cremation. For example, if the deceased weighed 100 pounds before cremation, you will need an urn that is at least 100 cubic inches or larger. If you're not sure which size to choose, we recommend selecting the larger size urn.
Your loved one's ashes will be contained within a plastic bag from the crematorium. The bag is designed to protect the remains from spilling and other potential hazards, such as water. The bag also makes it easy to transfer the ashes from one urn to another. If you are uncomfortable transferring the ashes yourself, you can bring the urn to a local funeral home or crematorium, they will be happy to assist you.
