Cremations are getting very common these days because of the pros they offer over traditional burials. However, considering a person who isn’t familiar with the process, some technicalities of the procedure can be confusing. We at Arbutus Funeral Service have come up with this brief guide about how to choose the right cremation urn for you.

Introduction

An urn is a container in which the remains of the deceased are stored after the cremation and before their disposal. There is a huge variety of urns available these days.

Factors to check

You can choose the ideal urn for you by considering the following factors-

  • Type Of Disposal - This depends on how you plan to dispose of the ashes. If you wish to scatter them, certain urns that make it easier to scatter the remains can be preferred. Moreover, if you want to bury the urn in a cemetery or columbarium, there are different types of urns for that as well.
     
  • Urn Size - The size of the urn must be considered to ensure the ashes fit inside it. The funeral service or crematorium would have a better idea about this and can help you decide the right size of urn to buy.
     
  • Quality - It is essential to understand the quality of the product you purchase. This will help you get a better idea about its shelf life and durability.
     
  • Cost - Funerals in themselves are an expensive affair and so it is better to opt for an urn which is worth its price. It is advised to do your research and find one at a price for the quality it offers.

We hope you now have a better understanding of how to buy the perfect urn for you. We, at Arbutus Funeral Service, organize funeral services. For more information about funerals and other related topics contact us with your requirements.
