There are lots of things to decide for a loved one who has passed away, like whether you are going to have a funeral or cremation services in Kent, WA for them. If you decide on cremation, the biggest thing to decide is which cremation package you are going to use. It’s nice to know that no matter what package you get, even if it’s the most basic one, it will cover your loved one’s needs. They are going to get the transportation they need to the funeral home facilities. They are also going to get care, the cremation process, and even a simple container. One thing many families like to add to that package is an urn to make things feel more special. Here are some details on those urns that will matter in terms of your decisions. 

Capacity Matters For Sizing 

Your loved one was a certain height and weight and you need a certain urn size to hold their remains. The funeral home professionals can help you figure out what size you need and then, they will show you options that will suit your loved one. You will want to get at least that size, but you can always get something larger, too. Or, you can get two urns in half the capacity size you need to split the ashes. There are plenty of options. 

Exterior Measurements Matter For Placement 

If you are going to place the urn somewhere, you will want to know what size it is on the outside. That can help you to decide where you are going to put the urn in your home or where you might want to place it during the memorial service. While the interior measurements are important for your loved one’s use, the exterior is important to where you will place the urn. 

The Vendor Does Not Matter

Of course, you are going to want to get a quality urn made out of the right materials for your uses, but you can get the urn from any vendor you choose and the cremation provider will still use it. You can look at the urns the funeral home has to get ideas, but if they don’t have what you want, or you need something more customized, there are other vendors that can help. The funeral home will use whatever urn you choose and they can even help you with ideas for vendors that offer good urns. 

Pre-Purchasing Can Be Nice 

If you plan your own cremation services ahead of time, it can be nice to purchase your own urn in advance as well. That’s just another thing your family would not have to do in the future. You get what you want and it’s ready and waiting for you whenever that time comes. 

There are tons of different urns available and you can choose whatever you feel is most fitting for your or your loved one whenever you are ready to look. When you get packages for cremation services in Kent, WA, you don’t have to get an urn, but it can be a nice addition.
