URN SIZE TO BUY
Calculation for Remains
Follow these rules to better determine the size of the urn you need:
In order to hold all your loved one's ashes you'll need to know what the approximate body weight of the person or pet you are shopping for.
- One pound of body weight will yield approximately 1 cubic inch of ash.
1 pound body weight = 1 cubic inch of ash.
- All our product descriptions list the size and volume of an urn in cubic inches. If you know the weight of the deceased, just find an Urn that has approx. same cu inches in volume.
Easy example: A cremated 200 pound person will yield almost 100 cubic inches of ashes. So, if 1 pound = 1 cubic inch then this person would need an urn that is approximately 200 cubic inches.
