Finding the Right Urn for Your Loved One’s Remains After Cremation

If your loved one wanted to be cremated, you still have decisions to make regarding a Jewish funeral home in Manalapan, NJ and all that is involved with the process. One of the most important things you will decide revolves around the urn you will choose for your loved one. The urn you pick will depend on different considerations. Keep these items in mind as you decide.

Price Range

The price is always going to matter in any cremation service you are considering. You can’t always have top-of-the-line items if you have a relatively small budget. But there is a wide range of prices for urns and you will likely be able to find something to suit your needs at a price you can afford. Your funeral home may have options, but keep in mind that you do not have to buy from them. You can get an urn anywhere you’d like and use it instead.

Single or Double

There are a number of different urns on the market and you will need to know what type and size you want. If yourmealcSQ loved one was part of a close couple, you may want a double urn, so the couple’s ashes can be side by side or mixed together once they have both died. You also need to keep in mind that most urns hold people who weighed up to 200 pounds. If they were larger, you will need a different option. Single urns are the most prevalent, but you can find other options to fit any needs.


What you are planning to do with the ashes will matter quite a bit when the time comes to find the right urn. If you are going to scatter the ashes, you don’t need anything fancy or costly since you will simply use the urn to transfer your loved one and then scatter the ashes. If you are going to display the urn in your home, you will want something stylish that looks nice on the mantel. If you are going to bury the urn, you might even want something biodegradable so you don’t have to worry about what the urn is doing to the environment once it is underground. Think about what you intend and choose an urn to meet those needs as well.
