It may be surprising, but many people come to us with a common question: is it possible to memorialize not just one legacy but two? With a custom-created urn, the answer is always “anything you want” because whatever you can imagine, we can do. We have extensive experience with companion urns to ensure that couples remain together through eternity.
While double cremation urns may not be on everybody’s radars, we understand the desire to remain together, even after passing. These unique urns are the perfect way to bind your memories and life’s legacy with those of a significant other who shares your same hopes, joys, and passions. In fact, they are the ultimate test of commitment.
Whether 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. We fully customize companion urns to ensure your two memories continue through the ages.
What Is a Shared Urn?
The term “shared urn” may not be in everybody’s vocabulary and goes by several other names. You may hear them referred to as couples urns, companion urns, or double cremation urns. Regardless of which name is used, the common thread is these types of urns are specially designed to hold the cremated ashes of two unique individuals.
Shared urns are the perfect way to preserve not only one memory but two as a loving legacy. Whether you go first or your loved one, both of you can find solace in knowing that your two kindred spirits will remain together forever.
Who Shares a Double Urn?
When most people think about unique companion urns, their minds automatically go to spouses sharing these special containers. After all, it’s the most fitting way for partners to celebrate their time spent together in the most meaningful of ways. However, plenty of other relationships lend themselves to companion urns.
For example, a parent may desire to share an urn with a child who passed before their time. A brother or sister may want to cohabit a double urn with a twin or close sibling. In other cases, cousins who consider themselves more like best friends or siblings may want to invest in a companion urn. We’ve even had dedicated pet parents who wanted to share a customizable double urn with their beloved pet. There’s no relationship that a partner urn isn’t perfect for.
Choosing the Design of Your Shared Urn
Planning companion urns together is an exciting experience that can bring two people closer than ever. You’ll have the opportunity to choose the type of design and style that best represents your shared legacy. This could be based on a favorite song, family vacation, hobby, passion, sports team, and more.
Depending on your preferences, you may want a single or double cavity to place your ashes. That way, you can either intertwine the ashes or keep them separate but still close. There is also the option of designing two identical custom urns that will stand side-by-side on a single-engraved plaque. While the ashes may not be as close as they would be in companion urns, they are still together while retaining some individuality.
Getting Peace of Mind
One of the best parts about thinking ahead with customizable urns is being prepared in the event of the other’s passing. In this case, it helps to know what will happen with both of your remains. Therefore, when it is your time, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’ll be placed next to your loved one in a hand-crafted, unique companion urn. Best of all, your beautifully designed urn will showcase your shared life together.
Companion urns also provide solace to others. If you are a parent, your child may also appreciate you giving them a couple's urn to remember their parents’ life spent together. The symbolic urn can help make the grieving process easier for your children and other loved ones.
