The best way to determine the cubic inch size of urn you should purchase would be to ask the crematorium about the amount of cubic inches of cremains you can expect when the cremation process is complete.

The amount of cremains you will receive can be hard for us to determine because of the many variables involved. Variables such as skeletal size, how long the cremains are in the cremation chamber, and the amount of processing that is done to the cremains after they are removed from the cremation chamber and prepared for placing into a cremation urn. This is why the crematoriums are the best ones to know what size urn you need because only they know the amount of cremains that are produced after the processes and standards they use. 

The industry standard is 1 cubic inch of space for every 1 pound of healthy weight. This industry standard should only be used as an approximate size required. We cannot be held responsible for anyone that uses this method alone for determining the size of cremation urn needed. (Use Charts Below At Your Own Discretion)

We recommend that if you plan to keep all of the cremains, that you purchase an urn larger in size than you are told you need to make sure you have enough room. If you plan to spread some of the cremains in a special place of your beloved family member or pet, than the size of the cremation urn is less critical and you can follow the industry standard of 1 cubic inch of space for every 1 pound of healthy weight. If you then have more cremains than the urn you purchased can hold, you can then spread them in your beloved ones special place.

There are different size cremation urns available to hold the remains of various sized humans and pets. The industry standard in the sizing of a cremation urn is one cubic inch of space for every one pound of healthy weight of your family member or pet.

Example: If your family member or pet weighed 120 lbs. you would need an urn with a minimum of 120 cubic inches of space inside. Itís best to purchase an urn on the larger side, unless you plan to scatter some ashes and keep the rest. A larger urn is also a better choice if you plan to bury your family member or pet with his/hers favorite jewelry, toys or mementos inside.
