Custom Companion Urns: Memorialize Your Shared Legacy

By: Pete Saari

A lot of couples will ask us if it’s possible to memorialize not just one legacy, but two. With a custom creation urn, the answer is always “anything you want.”

Though we understand the desire to bind your memories and life’s legacy with those of a significant other who shared your same hopes, joy, and passions. 

If you’ve shared a lifetime with a spouse, close sibling, or even a beloved pet, you may decide that the best way to celebrate this combined legacy is with a shared urn.

What Is a Shared Urn?

You might hear it go by other names, including couples urn, companion urn, or double urn

These types of cremation urns are designed to hold the cremated ashes of two individuals. But, it may not just be two spouses who wish to celebrate their time spent together in this way. 

A parent may desire to share an urn with a child who passed before his or her time. A brother may want to share an urn with a twin or close sibling. Or perhaps a cousin who was more like a best friend.

Choosing the Design of Your Shared Urn

Planning your custom urn together is an exciting experience. You’ll have the opportunity to choose the type of design that best represents your shared legacy. This could be a favorite song, family vacation, hobby, passion, sports team, and so on.

Depending on your preferences, you may decide on a single or double cavity to place your ashes. There is also the option of designing two identical custom urns that stand side-by-side on a single-engraved plaque. 

In the event of the other’s passing, it helps to know that when it is your time, you’ll be placed next to them in a hand-crafted, custom urn that beautifully showcases your shared life together. If you are a parent, your child may also appreciate being given a couples urn to remember his or her parents’ life spent together.
