Cremation Urn Styles
Cremation Solutions offers a large selection of cremation urns for you to choose from. Selecting a cremation urn is a very personal task that can often be difficult or overwhelming. Cremation Solutions offers many urns in different styles and sizes to lessen the stress that can accompany the process of selecting an urn. Many urns are selected for our loved ones simply because the style of the urn somehow reminds us of the individual's lifestyle and personality. We suggest you first decide what size the urn needs to be for its use. The sizes of the urns that we offer are listed below. Remember if scattering is to be the final disposition of the ashes, you should be looking at scattering urns or biodegradable urns.
Individual Cremation Urns
The most common size urn is the individual cremation urn. This size will hold the ashes of one adult. The cremation industry has a standard volume size for an individual cremation urn, which holds 200 cubic inches of ashes. Unless otherwise noted, all of our individual cremation urns are 200 cubic inches in volume capacity. Our individual cremation urns come in many materials and styles.
Companion Cremation Urns
The companion cremation urn is specially sized to hold the ashes of two individuals. Some of these urns have one chamber while some have two separate chambers within the cremation urn. Regardless of the type of companion urn, there is adequate space for the ashes of two people. Companion cremation urns come in many materials and sizes.
Cremation Urns for a Child
These cremation urns are specially sized and styled with children and infants in mind. The styles of these urns are suitable for children by way of artistic design, color and shape.
Keepsake Cremation Urns
These urns range in size but hold a considerably smaller amount of ashes then an individual sized urn. They are often used in addition to an individual urn and almost always should be used when using a scattering type urn. When ashes are scattered, retaining a small portion of the ashes is always recommended as it allows survivors to keep their loved one close by after they have passed. When several family members each want to share a portion of the ashes, keepsake urns are an ideal solution.
Cremation Urn Jewelry
Cremation Urn Jewelry has gained popularity in recent years. Wearing cremation urn jewelry is very comforting to survivors as it can help keep memories close to the heart while also providing a sense of connection to the deceased. Cremation urn jewelry is the smallest of cremation urns, holding only a pinch of ashes, a lock of hair, or dried flowers petals from the funeral. Cremation Solutions offers cremation urn jewelry in silver, gold, gold vermeil, pewter, brass, wood, and glass. All of our pendants will hold a small portion of ashes.
This is a specialized type of urn for families who have elected to scatter the ashes of their loved one. Scattering urns come in a variety of styles, which are often selected based on the location and technique of the scattering ceremony. Since scattering ashes is an irreversible action, it is suggested that some of the ashes be kept using a cremation keepsake urn. Like the birdhouse urns, many scattering urns have a secondary use following the scattering. Many of our scattering urns have a secondary function beyond dispersing ashes and are often used to hold a small portion of the ashes as a keepsake.
Cremation Urn Sculptures
Much more than just a cremation urn, a Cremation Urn Sculpture is a true piece of art. Many people like the sculpture urns because they do not look like an urn. Sculpture urns come in many styles and can be sized to hold all or just a portion of an individual’s ashes. Our Memory Glass line consists of custom glass sculptures. The ashes are mixed in with the glass by the artist while it is still in its liquid form. The ashes remain visible in the glass, creating unique swirling forms in the colors of your choice.
Cremation Urns for Veterans
We know how proud we are as Americans of members of our family who have served in the armed forces. We have this special selection of urns that are an appropriate tribute to those who have fought for our freedom. Many of these urns have the official seals of each branch of military service and can be further personalized with an inscription or brass name plate. Ask about our special discounts for those who lost their lives in the line of duty.
Cremation Urn Monuments
Cremation Urn Monuments are permanent memorials that have a designated space to hold one or more urns inside the monument itself. As society has become more mobile these monuments are a wonderful way to honor your loved one as they allow for the cremated remains to easily be relocated without obtaining special cemetery permits. They are often used on family property where they also need no special permits. These monuments are made of granite, faux stone in natural shapes, or even in the forms of benches and planters. A cremation monument is built to last for generations and some can be installed without a permanent foundation.
Cremation Urns for Pets
Pets are a part of the family and here at Cremation Solutions we want to serve your entire family with equal respect. We have a large selection of pet urns, cremation jewelry, and monuments that are specifically designed with your pets in mind. Pet urns can be engraved or personalized by breed to suit your specific desires.
