In today’s world, you can have your ashes scattered or stored in a cremation urn. The cremation urn gives you a chance to preserve your remains after you die and to keep your loved ones close by. Should you get a cremation urn?

Common Questions About Cremation Urns

Here are some of the more common questions about cremation urns that I get asked on a regular basis:

Are they expensive?

As an illustration, the cost of a plain urn is around $1,000 (USD). There are cheaper options out there as well, but they will come with certain limitations. For instance, if you’re looking for a low-cost option, you may end up getting an urn that will only hold a small amount of ashes. The cheapest option is likely to be the one that you can only use once. Some options may not even be able to be personalized at all, which is why they are so inexpensive.

Is it possible to reuse them?

It is possible to reuse cremation urns. But, if you want to reuse it again and again, you’ll need to make sure that the urn is properly cleaned after each time it’s used. Is it necessary to buy a new one every time? Not necessarily. You can reuse an urn more than once, but if you are planning on doing so, you’ll need to take care of the urn properly after each use. If you don’t, you risk breaking the urn. 

Do they come in different shapes and sizes?

Certainly! The choice of shape and size is completely up to you. You have the option to choose from a wide variety of different shapes and sizes. The choice is yours. You can also get cremation urns with or without a lid. They can be as small as a small coffee cup, and they can be as large as a whole urn. Can I customize my own cremation urn? Of course you can! And you can even pick the color too!

How do you clean them?

For the same reason as above, you’ll want to make sure that the urn is cleaned properly after each use. Can you put ashes inside them? The answer to this question is no. As far as we know, ashes cannot be placed inside an urn. But, there is no rule against it. If you are willing to go through with it, you can definitely do so. It’s not something that I’d recommend though. What should I look for in an urn?

What materials are they made of?

For example, what metal do they contain? The most common material for cremation urns is a type of steel known as stainless steel. There are a number of different types of steel used in the manufacturing process. Some of them are more resistant to corrosion than others. The type of steel used depends on the purpose of the urn. Some urns will have a gold finish, while others will have a silver finish. There are also some urns that are entirely plastic. This is a type of plastic that is specifically designed to withstand high temperatures.

How big should they be?

And then what should I do with them? When it comes to size, the answer depends on your needs and preferences. If you want to make sure that you have enough room for your cremation ashes, you may want to go for a larger urn. But, if you only need enough space for a small amount of ashes, you may want to go for a smaller one. If you’re not sure about the size you need, you can always get a custom-made one. What should I do with the ashes after I’ve used the urn? The ashes are a permanent part of the urn.

What happens to the ashes?

Whereas some urns will be placed inside the ground, others will be buried in the earth. The choice is yours. If you’re going to bury the ashes, you’ll need to choose a location where they will stay for hundreds of years. If you want to put them inside a urn, you’ll need to decide what type of urn you’re going to use.

Is there a regulation as to how large or small a urn can be?

In the end, you will have to decide what size and shape works best for you. But, there is no rule that says that you can’t have a small urn, or that you can’t have a big one. It all depends on your needs. Do they come with lids? Yes, they do.
