Frequently Asked Questions
1.What size urn do I need for a person?
The standard urn is 200 cubic inches, but slightly smaller or larger urns are available and range from 50 or smaller to 300 cubic inches. Cremations are usually one cubic inch for every pound of body weight.
2.Do cremation urns come in different sizes?
Yes, they do come in different sizes, colors and materials. It is up to people to choose what kind of urns they will get. Many websites provide rich collections of portfolios that can help you decide what urn you need.
3.Do bigger people need bigger urns?
Each pound of body weight equals roughly one cubic inch of ashes after cremation. It is suggested to select an urn a bit larger than the space expected to use. It really depends on the model of the urns that you will provide or get. The density of the bones and the frame of a person will affect the volume of the cremated remains much more than the actual weight of the face, as all fluids and soft tissues are consumed during the cremation process.
4.What is a full size urn?
Since a large portion of the ashes originate from the bones, the amount of ashes at the end is almost the same regardless of the weight of the body. The body fat is all consumed during the cremation process, so a full-size urn means it can fit more ashes inside.
5.Do all urns for ashes need sealing?
Yes, all of our large urns for ashes require sealing. The Process is very easy. Apply adhesive and put the ceramic plug of the urn for ashes. Wait for 30 minutes for the glue to dry.
6.Can you put cremted remains in an urn for ashes yourself?
Yes, absolutely. You have the option to put your loved one’s ashes into your choice of cremation urn yourself, or have a funeral director place your cherished one’s cremated remains into an urn for ashes.
