Urns on this page are smaller urns. They come in several styles, including hand-made ceramic, wood, and glass. They can be used for several different uses. The first is if multiple family members wish to keep part of the remains. This way, everyone can participate in keeping the ashes with them and having a keepsake of their loved one. Another use is to keep a portion of the ashes in a separate location, such as at the office.
These urns can be used also for an infant urn. The smaller size is appropriate and fitting.
If cremains are to be scattered, these urns can be used to keep a small part of the ashes. They require less space and still provide the memorial to your loved one. Or if most of the ashes are kept in a larger urn in a cremation niche at a cemetary, the keepsake urn can keep some of the ashes at your home or an alternate location.
In addition, these urns work for small-sized pets. Keep in mind that the size urn required is approximately 1 cubic inch per 1 pound of the deceased. Check the size on the urn to make sure it will work for your needs.
