One of the most common questions I recieve from customers is,  "What size urn do I need?"

To accommodate the varied needs of my customers, I make urns in many shapes and sizes.

To better determine the size of the urn you need, you'll need to know that approximamte weight of the person or pet whose ashes you wish to hold.

In order for all of your loved one's ashes to fit comfortably in an urn, allow 1 cubic inch of volume per one pound of pre-cremation weight.

In most cases, 1 lb. of body weight will yield just about 1 cubic inch of ash. For shopping purposes, you can confidently assume that 1 pound body weight will equal 1 cubic inch ash.

In the description of each urn in my shop, I will list the size of the urn in Cubic Inches. If you know the weight of the deceased, you can then you know the size of the urn you need.

For example: A cremated 40 pound pet will yield about 40 cubic inches of ashes.
