Pet Size Guide

When a furry friend passes away, knowing which size urn will hold you angel's ashes can seem daunting. The rule for cremation urn ashes is that for every pound of body weight it will equal one cubic inch of ashes.

In this guide we have compiled tables to help you work out the approximate weight of your dearly departed and the capacity needed to hold them within our Pet Urns. You will also find the specifications for each urn on their specific product page with their holding capacity listed.
Keepsake urns can also be perfectly suitable for holding the ashes of your pet, though this will depend on the specifications on their respective product page, as each of our urns is unique in both aesthetic and capacity.
