Did you know that there are cremation urns for couples? These are urns for ashes specifically designed for two people.
The funeral industry term for a cremation urn for couples is a "companion urn." This is an urn with double-sized capacity (approximately 400 cubic inches). It will have plenty of room to hold the ashes of two people.
There are two main reasons why couples choose a companion urn as their final resting place. You'll probably be able to come up with more (here are five), but let's hit the two big ones.
1. An urn for the two of you will keep you "together forever"
Together in life, together in death. Together forever.
That's the sentiment that draws couples to the idea of a companion urn. You lived your lives with one another - and for one another - so why not be together.... always?
These cremation urns for couples allow you to keep your ashes close by one another even after you're both gone. You can keep the remains in their individual plastic bags (that's how the ashes come from the crematorium) yet placed together in the urn. Or you can commingle the ashes into a single bag and place them together in the container. It's up to you.
2. An urn for the two of you will save you money
Companion urns are generally more expensive than similar standard sized urns. Which makes sense, because they are bigger. But a companion urn will often cost much less than buying two individual urns. So an urn for the two of you will be easier on your budget.

During production, the urn is placed into a combustion chamber along with dried leaves and other foliage. When the combustion chamber is sealed, the dried materials burst into flame and create a one-of-a-kind pattern on the urn.
7. Soulmates Companion Urn
The Soulmates design is the perfect choice.
Not only does it feature a stunning inlay art scene, a timeless depiction of a couple enjoying a moment together on a bench overlooking a mountain lake, your choice of oak, walnut, maple, or mahogany wood, and top-tier American craftsmanship, but it also includes personalization of the couple's names and anniversary date on the back of the bench.
For true soulmates only.
8. Classic Marble Double Urns
Our popular line of classic marble urns are all available in companion urn size. With many colors from which to choose and the ideal surface for custom laser engraving, this is a timeless choice to use as the urn for a devoted couple.
9. Hand Turned "Pure" Maple Urn
This is one of several companion urns we offer that are handcrafted from a single block of wood.
The artist carefully chooses each piece from a section of a fallen tree that he finds in the woods. This means that no trees were cut down to make the memorial.
He then cuts down the block into an urn shape and turns it on a lathe, hollowing out the interior to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind vessel with space for the remains of two people.
