After cremation it is necessary to have an urn where the remains of the deceased will be placed. But a cremation urn is more than just a container. It is a lot like a casket in that it is a vessel that is sometimes meant to serve as a symbol of the deceased life. For a longtime the urns you’d find in funeral homes were pretty much the same.

The adult size is a standard container that is 200 cubic inches. The standard was determined by Cremation Association of North America (CANA). Material There are many different materials that you can choose from and they range from ceramic, glass, wood, and metal. Ceramic is one of the most popular because it is ideal for personalization.
