Knowing which size of urn to get can seem a little confusing however there is a simple way to work it out. The total capacity of the urn is measured in cubic inches, if you know roughly how much your pet weighed in pounds its easy to convert. For example if your pet weighed 50 pounds, you would need an urn that is 50 cubic inches or larger, if they weighed 20 pounds, you would need an urn that is 20 cubic inches or larger and so on. If you are slightly unsure you can always get an urn that is slightly bigger as having extra space inside is absolutely fine.
Keepsake urns are also available where only a small amount of ashes is kept in the urn, a few tablespoons or less, which can be discreetly kept in the home or garden after scattering the remainder of the ashes.
