Q: How large does an urn need to be?

A: An urn will need to hold one cubic inch for each pound the deceased weighed at the time of death. For example: A cremated 100 pound person will yield almost 100 cubic inches of ashes.

Hardwood Urn Co.'s urns hold up to 400 cubic inches, and will meet the needs of most individuals. If you need a larger solution, please contact us.
