The majority of people do not choose cremation urns on a regular basis, and because there are so many different types of cremation urns available, it can be challenging to know where to start. Tindall Funeral Home is the place to go if you need an urn or have questions about what an urn is. There are answers to many questions, including "What cremation urn options do I have?"

What Are Cremation Urns?

An urn is a special type of container used to hold cremated remains. Many urn shapes, dimensions, and designs are available, and they are typically made of wood, marble, or metal.

Types of Cremation Urns

Since every family or person has different preferences, there are many different types of urns to choose from such as the following:

  • Single-person "urns" are made to hold one set of remains
  • Multi-person "companion urns" are made to hold the remains of more than one person
  • Children's, animals, and keepsake urns are designed to hold smaller quantities of ashes than adult urns.
  • It is possible to find cremation urns that are tailored to commemorate a particular line of work or hobby, such as the veteran urn.

Cremation urns are available in many styles and materials, which enables you to memorialize loved ones in a meaningful way.

Individual Cremation Urns

It's safe to say that the vast majority of options in this category are individual cremation urns. A single cremation's ashes can be stored in an urn in about 200 cubic inches. Approximately one pound of a person's weight can be represented by one cubic inch of cremains.

Individual urns are generally regarded as the best choice for storing cremated remains after death. Thanks to the numerous filtering options, families can narrow down precisely what they want based on criteria like their interests, favorite colors, and budget.

Other Types Of Cremation Urns

In addition to the cremation urns already mentioned, here are some other options:

  • Eco-Friendly Cremation Urns
  • 3D Artisan Portrait Cremation Urns
  • Child and Infant Cremation Urns
  • Keepsake Cremation Urns
  • Companion Cremation Urns

A dog urn with the family's name is a touching memorial to a cherished animal. A small portion of a child's first pet's ashes can be preserved in an urn as a keepsake and serve as a constant strong reminder of the cherished pet.
