Urn Keepsakes: For many families the topic of who gets to keep a loved one's cremated remains can turn into a tension-creating issue. In fact, it is not uncommon for families to strongly disagree or even argue over the method in which their loved one is memorialized. Some may prefer interment by way of land or water while others may prefer to keep the ashes in a stunning art urn at home. For families faced with these difficult decisions the stress can become overwhelming. However, by utilizing urn keepsakes, families may respect each individual's wishes by allowing a loved one to be memorialized in multiple ways.
What is a Keepsake Urn?
Keepsake urns are simply smaller versions of standard-sized urns. Because the urns are significantly smaller, they are typically not capable of holding all of the cremated remains of an adult. This allows for each family member to be given a small amount of ashes to cherish and memorialize as they please.
Although smaller in size, our urn keepsakes are capable of holding small quantities of ashes and small mementos of love.
Keepsake Urns for Children
On occasion families may feel frustrated in their search for an urn in honor of an older child. They do not want a "baby" urn but feel the standard urns are too large to suite their needs. In these cases, a keepsake urn may be the appropriate fit. Because they are smaller versions of standard urns, they look more "adult" but can appear to be "youth" size. Especially when personalized with one of our many urn accessories, a keepsake urn is a perfect choice.
Keepsake Urns for Pets
It is not uncommon for pet owners to desire to create a beautiful memorial in honor of their beloved pets. And, while we do offer a large selection of pet-specific urns, we also recommend using keepsake urns for pets as well. Due to their smaller size, keepsake cremation urns are ideal for small to medium-sized household pets. If you are searching for an urn in honor of your pet but are uncertain as to the size that you need to order, it is important to note that industry standards recommend one cubic inch of space for every pound that your pet weighed prior to his or her passing.
Available Styles and Accessories
Keepsake urns come in many different materials including bronze, cloisonné, pewter, brass, ceramic, composites, glass, and marble. Available in countless shapes, sizes and styles, our selection of keepsake urns may be paired with a stunning medallion name plate or easel name plate to create a beautiful display memorial. We also offer a wide selection of medallions including military and other professional emblems that may be adhered to the urn of your choice.
