What style of urn should I buy?
If you plan to keep the urn at home, then you have the freedom to choose whichever urn you would like. If it will be stored in a niche or columbarium, make sure to measure the space available so you can find an urn that will fit inside. If you are planning to bury the urn, you may need to purchase a burial container or vault. We always recommend checking with the cemetery to make sure they do not have any other stipulations that you may not be aware of. If you are planning to scatter the ashes instead of storing them, scattering tubes are a respectful way to fulfill your wishes.
