2. What size urn do I need?

Just like people and pets, urns come in many different shapes and sizes. Follow this simple rule of thumb to determine the size urn you need:

  1. What was the approximate body weight of the person or pet you are shopping for?
  2. 1 lb. 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
    .
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
