What is a companion urn?


A companion urn is a cremation urn for two individuals.

Capacity / Size

The industry standard size for a companion urn (also known as a "double urn" or "urn for two") is 400 cubic inches, which is generally large enough to hold the remains of two individuals, often a husband and wife.

To figure how many cubic inches you'll need, simply convert the individuals' body weight into cubic inches and add together. So, for a 200 lb man (roughtly 200 cubic inches of remains) and a 140 lb woman (roughly 140 cubic inches of remains), the total capacity you will need in a companion urn is 340 cubic inches.
