Selecting the correct size

Urns come in as many sizes and shapes as people or pets

Enter your loved one's approximate weight to determine the correct urn size.

Your loved one's weight

(in pounds)

Minimum urn capacity

(in cubic inches)

For every one pound of body weight, allow about 1 cubic inch capacity (for example, your 150 pound loved one will need an urn with a minimum capacity of 150 cubic inches). Remember, an urn can only be too small - if you're not sure, it's better to choose a larger urn.

What size urn do I need?

This is a good question. Most of our urns will hold the cremation ashes of a 200 pound adult, and some will hold more. Generally, when estimating the capacity of an urn, one cubic inch is approximately equal to one pound. Please note, because our urns are works of art, the sizes we provide are estimates only. We cannot guarantee the exact capacity.

To view the estimated capacity of a specific urn, please view More Details located on that urn’s information page.
