What Are Cremation Keepsakes?

Today, many people choose cremation. One of the advantages of cremation is that it offers many options for storing ashes. This is very different from burial in a cemetery, where you have to go to a graveyard. Cremation provides the opportunity to have the remains of a loved one close at hand in the form of keepsake cremation jars. Or, many people choose to scatter the ashes in a place of great importance to loved ones. And others choose to scatter some of their ashes and keep the rest.

A cremation memorial may be in a standard urn, usually having a capacity of about 200 cubic inches. The general rule for determining the appropriate urn size is as follows: 1 cubic inch = 1 pound of human weight. 

For those who wish to save some of their ashes, there are several cremation options. There are commemorative urns that are smaller than full-size urns. These can come in the form of very small containers that fit under a cup of ash. Or it can be bigger to accommodate more of them. It is an ideal choice for family and/or friends who wish to share the ashes amongst themselves. This is also a good idea for those who want to spread some of the ashes but save a little.

Another form of cremation is a memorial urn. It's glass, and its shape and shape are similar to a paperweight. Here too, the ashes are mixed into the glass in liquid form. Ash appears to have the same effect as stardust on the final product.
