Types of cremation urns?
Our cremation urns are available in a variety of sizes, styles and materials. You may select an urn made out of glass, crystal, porcelain, or ceramic. Cremation urns are available in many sizes including keepsakes, individual urns, and companion urns. Styles range from the traditional vase shape to modern and decorative art pieces. Some urns can be tailored to depict an individual personality, hobby or an interest.
What urn size do I need?
The funeral industry suggests that you need one cubic inch of an urn space (volume) for each pound of person’s weight. For example, a 150 lbs person can be assumed to need an urn of 150 cubic inches or higher. The volume information is noted in the description of each urn as follows:
Volume: 150 in3 ( cubic inches)
Keepsakes are suitable for keeping a small amount of ashes. Their sizes vary from 10 to 36 cubic inches ( 10 - 36 in3).
Placing an urn into a niche:
Size of an urn, such as its height and width, may be important to know if the urn is to be placed inside of a niche. Please ask your service provider to give you the inside dimmensions of the niche. Then look on our product page for measurements to make sure the urn will fit inside. Please note that as our products are hand made, there may be slight variations in the height/ width of the urn you may receive. If you are unsure if the urn will fit, please contact our office and we can help you to determine the correct size.
If you need any assistance, please call our customer service care team at 1800.969.2305, or +1.734.418.2618.
TSA rules for transporting cremation ashes.
Carry On Bags: Yes (Special Instructions)
Checked Bags: Yes
We understand how painful losing a loved one is and we treat crematory remains with respect. Some airlines do not allow cremated remains in checked bags, so please check with your airline to learn more about possible restrictions.
To facilitate screening, we suggest that you purchase a temporary or permanent crematory container made of a lighter weight material, such as wood or plastic. If the container is made of a material that generates an opaque image, TSA officers will not be able to clearly determine what is inside the container and the container will not be allowed. Out of respect for the deceased, TSA officers will not open a container, even if requested by the passenger.
