Our burial urns collection is dedicated to urns intended for burial by land or sea.

It is important to know ahead of time when choosing a burial urn where it is going to stay. If it is going into a mausoleum then you may need to check with the cemetery for their requirements. If you are planning to bury the urn on your own property or in nature, your choices can be much more broad. If you are burying at sea, then you should choose burial urns that break down quickly as not to effect the aquatic ecosystem. These materials would be mostly paper and clay.

The majority of burial urns are made from marble cultured marble stone,  paper, clay and poly resin composite materials. You can of course use any material such as wood, glass, ceramic etc. Most people do not choose poly resin plastic materials if they want to keep the burial Eco-friendly and green.

The most popular is made from cultured marble. Cultured marble is actually stronger than all natural marble. This makes it more weather resistant and perfect for outdoors. Another great benefit of cultured marble burial urns is that they can be made in any color. whether you prefer solid colors or multi-color with marble like striations in them to make them look more like solid marble.
