Different shapes for the funeral urn

Today, there are numerous shapes of funeral urns. It is possible to find urns shaped like hearts, lotus flowers, or even adorned with angel wings.

The vast majority of cremation urns available are individual cremation urns. These have a capacity of 3 to 3.5 L depending on the size of the deceased. This wide variety allows families to refine their choice according to a particular passion of the deceased or even a particular colour.

The cremation urn for a couple is larger than the individual urns. The size of these urns is sufficient to hold the ashes of two adults. You have the option of choosing a single chamber urn or a double chamber urn to separate the ashes in the container.

These urns are smaller and designed to hold only a portion of the cremated remains. These urns are used for a variety of purposes, usually to hold a small portion of the remains as a keepsake when your loved one’s ashes are buried or held in a columbarium.

Ceramic is the most common material used in the manufacture of funeral urns. Unique and artistic, they can be sealed with wax to avoid any unpleasant opening. Ceramic is a very delicate material and can be easily cleaned.

Wooden funeral urns are made of different species. It is possible to find them in maple, mahogany or walnut. Their natural brown tones bring a touch of delicacy to this funeral object. Easy to maintain, you can have a message engraved in memory of the deceased.

In recent years, a new type of urn has appeared. They are made from biodegradable materials. Made of paper, cardboard or natural fibers, they hold the ashes of a loved one while remaining ephemeral. Some of them can be used as a flowerpot to grow a tree or any other plant.

The metal urn is made of bronze, pewter, stainless steel or brass. It provides a lasting final resting place for your loved one. Easy to maintain, the metal urn is an economical option. Less expensive than other materials, metal remains a popular choice.

Round or rectangular, granite urns provide an elegant setting for your loved ones’ ashes. They can be personalized and are available in a wide range of colours and finishes. The material is strong and will not deteriorate over time.
