Cremation Urn General Information

Cremation Urn Sizing Guide

Cremated remains (ashes) can vary in amount due to different cremation processes, temperature variations, bone structure of the deceased, height, age and the coffin used. Generally a 2.9 litre and above urn is large enough to hold the ashes of an adult.

As a guide, the table below can help you in calculating ash amount to urn size.

  • a 100kg person needs an urn that is 3.1 litres or larger
  • a 90kg person needs an urn that is 2.9 litres or larger
  • a 70kg person needs an urn that is 2.6 litres or larger

Please Note: The above information is provided as a guide only.  Exact sizing of Ashes to Urn can only happen after more precise measuring.

 What if the ashes do not fit in the urn?

If the amount of cremated remains cannot fit inside the selected urn, then you may decide to have the remaining ashes:

  • Placed into a smaller matching keepsake
  • Scattered in a special place of remembrance
  • Ask for the ashes to be reprocessed to a finer ash by the crematorium
