What size of urn should I buy?
A general rule when determining the ideal size of urn is that every 1 pound of body weight, prior to cremation, equals about one cubic inch of capacity in the urn.
For example, if your loved one weighed 200 lbs, then the urn capacity should be able to hold approximately 200 cubic inches.
Again, it’s a general rule and these rules vary based on the crematoriums processing and preparation.
We label our urns with either adult / large or child / infant to help make it easy to select the proper size for your loved one.
Keepsakes usually have 5 cubic inches or less, and the same rule applies if you’re purchasing an urn for a pet.
