Companion Urns- Cremation Urns For Two
Companion urns or cremation urns for two are meant to hold the ashes of a couple. These ashes can be stored, scattered, or buried. When planning to bury the urns, you can either buy a pair of permanent burial urns or biodegradable urns.
Permanent urns are usually made of metal or stone. The ones constructed of metal may be further encased in urn vaults. Biodegradable urns, on the other hand, are environment-friendly as they tend to decompose over time.
Companion urns can be prepared from ceramic, brass, wood, marble, copper, bronze, and sustainable materials like recycled paper.
As funeral or cremation urns for two are supposed to hold the cremated remains of two individuals (husband and wife), they are oversized.
Besides, you can also find a pair of matching urns to preserve the memories of a loving and devoted couple. Thus, these urns can hold at least 350-400 cubic inches of ashes. Furthermore, they can be customized to reflect the lives of the couple.
