Burial Urns for Your Loved Ones


Burial urns can be made from a wide variety of materials, such as wood, marble, or metal. You can find cremation urns in all styles, from basic to ornate, as some of them are meant to be displayed. They come in different dimensions and vary in cost based on the design.

How to Choose Urns 

Final Resting Place 

Before considering urn designs, families should consider where a cherished one's cremation urn would be placed. Will you spread the ashes, bury the urn, or display it in a place at home? Because the urn is just temporary, you might wish to consider scattering urns or tubes, water burial urns, or less costly urns. If you want to bury the urn as a permanent tribute in a cemetery, you can choose from a diverse range of cremation urns. 

Adult cremation urns are the most common size. Adult size can usually carry the ashes of someone who weighed 200-220 pounds or less before cremation. When dispersing one person's ashes among multiple persons or for kids, medium urns are required. Keepsake urns are used to keep a tiny portion of ashes in memory. Extra-large urns are offered for those who are tall or have a bigger frame. 


Cremation urns are designed from various materials. Stone, metal, wood, and ceramic are the most prevalent and among them. If you are burying the urn in a cemetery lot, a stone urn, such as cultured marble or granite, is a good choice because the urn will act as its safety vault. 

Small touches that bring up memories of your loved one might be soothing. Many urns may be customized with a message and even artwork engraved on them. You may pick an urn that matches their favourite colour. You may get an urn with a photo on it if you like. The urn itself might be decorated with a motif like lighthouses, animals, or flowers. 


Finding solutions to save money on funeral homes and other expenditures is crucial to your funeral budget. Some things are priceless, such as transforming your loved one's ashes into a stunning keepsake. The same may be said for selecting the ideal cremation urn. But don’t go overboard with the budget; choose wisely.
