What Is a Keepsake Urn?


A keepsake urn is a small urn which holds a tiny portion of cremains, usually between 1-35 cubic inches depending on the design of the keepsake (standard adult urn size holds 200 cubic inches).


Keepsake urns are used for a variety of purposes, usually to keep a small portion of remains as a memorial when your loved one's ashes are buried or kept in a columbarium. Many of our keepsake urns are smaller versions of a standard sized urn for this very reason.

Keepsake urns are also sometimes known as "sharing keepsakes" because several relatives may wish to each keep a small portion of remains, or because an individual's remains may be entirely divided up between several loved ones.


Here is a video of our Dimensional Keepsake Urns which hold just 1 cubic inch of remains in a tiny compartment in the back of the urn:
