A Dignified Vessel - A Functional Scattering Urn - A Living Memorial

Birdhouse Memorial Urns were designed to enhance the memorialization process and stimulate ceremony for families who choose to scatter the ashes of their loved one. Deathcare experts have often said that families who choose to scatter, should either mark the location of the ashes with a memorial or when that is not possible have a memorial placed close to home. It is important for the grief process to have a focal point where survivors may come to reflect and hold on to precious memories.

Birdhouse Urns address this need more then any other urn. As an urn they are dignified vessels which contain the ashes of our loved one. They are elegant enough to be displayed during any part of the funeral process. They are functional in the way they are easily able to disperse the earthly remains back into nature. They provide a lasting tribute as a living Memorial.

Many families choose to scatter because they consider it to be a more natural way to go back into the earth and continue the cycle of life. As birds come and go with the seasons, build their nest in these sacred vessels and raise their young and so on, the cycle of life continues. These memorials not only provide shelter to our winged friends but also give comfort to the survivors when they come to these places of rest. Birds often remind us of a sense of freedom and oneness with nature that many of us yearn for. Watching bird provides us with tranquil moments in time that will help us reflect on the lives of our loved one for generations to come.

Cremation Urn Sizing
What size urn do I need?

One pound of body weight will yield just less than 1 cubic inch of ash. Assume for shopping purposes that: 1 pound body weight = 1 cubic inch ash.

Cremation urn item descriptions list the size of the urn in Cubic Inches. If you know the weight of the deceased - then you know the size of the urn you need. Approx Weight = Approx Size.

Easy example: A cremated 100 pound person will yield almost 100 cubic inches of ashes. So, if 1 pound = 1 cubic inch then this person would need an urn that is approximately 90-100 cubic inches or larger.

Keepsake Jewelry is designed to hold a trace amount of ashes, similar to the size of the head of a sewing pin.
