What Size Cremation Urn Do You Need?
The majority of people will require a standard adult urn, which is designed to hold the ashes of a person weighing 200 pounds or fewer prior to cremation. Cremation urns come in a wide range of sizes, including oversized urn, companion urn(two-person), medium/small (for a tiny amount of the ashes) urn, and keepsake urn. Finding out how much your loved one weighed before they were cremated is a great point to begin. One pound of weight is equal to one cubic inch of ashes after cremation. If he or she weighed 150 pounds before death, an urn with a capacity of 150 cubic inches or more is necessary. The majority of our urns have a capacity of 200-220 cubic inches. Keepsake urns, also known as mini urns, are commonly used to memorialize a little number of ashes. When family members desire to split ashes among numerous people, keepsake urns and medium urns are used. Please use the below Urn Size Guide to see what urn size you expect to buy.

If I provide my own urn, will a funeral home use it?
Yes. In general, funeral homes are accustomed to providing this feature as part of their services. The Federal Trade Commission’s Funeral Rule ensures that every American has the right to provide his or her own casket or urn for the use of the funeral home. Specifically, the rule states A funeral home cannot refuse to process a casket or urn that you purchased online, at a local casket store or elsewhere, or charge you for it. The funeral home cannot require you to be present when the casket or urn is delivered to them.

What do funeral homes think when I ask them to use an urn that I bought somewhere else?
Whether you buy an urn from them or from a third party, they are fully aware of the “funeral rules” and are often courteous and helpful.
