A cremation urn is a container used to store an individual’s cremated ashes. Cremation urns are typically composed of solid and long-lasting materials such as wood, porcelain, metal, or plastic. They can also be decorated with symbols, drawings, or different colors, depending on the family’s preferences.
The price of a cremation urn varies depending on where you buy it and what material it is made of. Wooden or wood-look metal urns can cost several hundred dollars. Most people choose to cremate their loved one’s remains in a less expensive container until they can afford a more luxurious (and more expensive) urn.
