Remember the following tips while choosing an urn to hold all the cremated remains or even a portion of them.
Determine the size of the urn.
Usually, cremated remains weigh 5 – 10 pounds and require about 180 to 220 cubic inches of capacity.
If you decide to place the cremated remains in a niche within a cemetery columbarium, check with the cemetery about the type and size of urns they allow in their niches.
Dividing the cremated remains.
Some families often keep some of the cremated remains after scattering them or splitting them up between children and grandchildren. Keepsake or token urns, along with jewelry that holds a very small portion of cremated remains, might be the best choice.
Scattering, Biodegradable and Water-Soluble.
Urn manufacturers have developed many interesting products to assist families with their wishes. If you plan to place the cremated remains in the ocean, from water-soluble urns to biodegradable urns that decompose over time, making them environmentally friendly. Even scattering urns that easily open for natural pouring and scattering of cremated remains.
*As cremation urns are available in a number of shapes and styles, their prices also vary tremendously. Thus, decide your budget, and set some price ranges before you decide.
Solidified remains are a complete alternative to cremated remains that allow you to live comfortably with your departed. The solidification process compresses conventional cremated remains into a beautiful collection of 40-80+ “stones” you can hold, share, scatter, and travel with.
The appearance of each collection of solidified remains is 100% natural. People can result in different hues and textures, making each set unique. Parting Stone empowers families in their grief by providing a form of remains that can be touched and held.
