How to Select An Urn

We know from our own experience how important it is to have a special memorial for your loved one. Our collections are designed to give you options on how to collectively and individually honor your family member.

Cremation offers an array of different options for memorializing your loved one’s life, so we offer three types of pieces: full-size urns, keepsakes and picture frames.

The selection of an urn complements the final placement in the cemetery, in your home or in the niche of a church, mausoleum, or standard columbarium. Most families choose a full-size urn to hold the majority of the cremated remains and then select smaller keepsake urns for individual family members and friends. Many also select a matching picture frame for use at the ceremony or celebration to personalize the service and provide a visual remembrance.

Cremation offers an array of different options for memorializing your loved one’s life, so we offer three types of pieces: full-size urns, keepsakes and picture frames.

Full-size urns

Each collection has two full-size urns, horizontal and vertical, intended for the cremated remains of one person. Our vertical urns hold up to 165 cubic inches and are designed to fit in the niche of a church, mausoleum, or standard columbarium. The Horizontal Urn is the largest, holding up to 220 cubic inches, and can be placed anywhere from your home to a cemetery or a columbarium niche.

As a general rule, you need one cubic inch of urn capacity for each pound of the person’s weight. For example, someone weighing 160 pounds would need an urn that has a capacity of approximately 160 cubic inches. Your funeral home will assist you with planning.

Keepsakes

Our keepsakes are perfect if you choose to scatter cremated remains and keep a small amount, or if you want to allow other family members and friends to memorialize your loved one. These urns come in two styles:

  • The Keepsake Urn is a smaller version of the Horizontal Urn, designed to hold a limited amount of cremated remains.
  • The Memento Keepsake has two compartments. The bottom one holds a small amount of cremated remains, and the top one holds mementos such as small photos, a piece of jewelry or a cherished heirloom.

These simple and elegant keepsakes are the perfect way to preserve a special memory, and adorn a bookshelf or mantle in a home or on an office desk.

Granville Picture Frame

Picture Frames

A cherished photo is a wonderful reminder of our loved ones. Our frames hold a 5” x 7” photograph and can be oriented either horizontally or vertically. They are an excellent option for family members and friends who want to have a tangible remembrance in addition to or in lieu of cremated remains.

We know it can be difficult to determine the best option for you and your family. We are here to help. Contact us or call Customer Service at 1-866-967-0555.
