Selecting your cremation urn
Selection of a cremation urn for a loved one is an important step in the memorial process. Often, there is a particular aspect to an urn that stands out and becomes the deciding factor in your selection. Indeed, choosing the urn often happens quite organically, whether the decision is made by one individual or in consensus with family members.
It’s always best to start with how you plan to use the urn in order to narrow down the selection. For instance, there are urns that can be used for land burials or water burial, urns to keep on display or to house in a private memorial or columbarium niche. Whatever the final resting place for the urn, you will find there are many beautiful distinguished designs to select from.

Sizing your cremation urn for ashes
It is best practice to ensure that your selected urn’s capacity is comfortably accurate. We recommend choosing an urn with more space than you think you might need.
The sizing chart below is an accurate representation of sizing for each urn. The rule is one cubic inch for every pound that the person or pet weighed. For example, if your pet weighed 25 lbs, we would recommend purchasing a small urn for a pet weighing up to 50 lbs to ensure that there is ample room in the ashes container. All of our urn sizings follow these standards:
Material choicesOur urns for sale offer a huge variety of materials for your selection, from metal urns to stone urns, biodegradable urns to stained glass cremation urns. We even offer cremation pottery from locally sourced artisans who create one of a kind pieces in their studios.
Because it is our goal to offer a rare selection of urns for you to choose from, we have scoured the world to discover the best sources. Our urns come to us from across the globe, China, India and California to name a few.
A brief history of cremation
Cremation has a long and distinguished history, going back at least 20,000 years, per the first archaeological records. It was used in both Roman and Greek civilizations where they often cremated the most revered members of society, its practice widely accepted as a form of respect and reverence. In the Norse tradition, Vikings were commonly cremated with important objects that catalogued their deeds and triumphs throughout life, aiding them on their way to their forefathers. Cremation’s history and traditions are varied and well known by archeologists as traditional methods of commemorating an esteemed life.
Finalizing your purchase
Because many cemeteries have strict policies or restrictions pertaining to the burial of cremation urns, we recommend that you check with your funeral provider before finalizing your decision if you are intending to purchase an urn for burial. You may find there is a requirement for an urn vault to house your chosen urn.
