Urn Sizing

Affordable-urns.com carries an extensive line of urns. Two factors are important when choosing a cremation urn.

  1. Amount of ashes the urn will hold, which determines the volume. The volume will show how many cubic inches the urn will hold. For example, a 150 lb individual at time of cremation will produce approximately 150 cubic inches of cremains. This means there will be 1 cubic inch of cremains for every 1 pound at time of cremation.
  2. If the urn will be stored in a niche or columbarium, be sure to consider the dimensions of the space the urn will occupy.
