Everything you need to know about a companion urn

Losing someone extremely close to you can feel like losing your second half. You may feel a longing to always have them close to you, even after they've passed on. 

As final as death seems, there might be a solution for eventually reuniting with your loved one. A companion urn is a perfect solution for those who want to eventually be reunited with their deceased loved one in death.

What is a Companion Urn?

A companion urn is an urn large enough to hold the ashes of two individuals. It's a way for couples, siblings, or close friends to be buried together, even if they pass away separately.  Sometimes called "Urn for Two," companion urns come in many sizes and styles.

Depending on the model, these urns may have two separate compartments. Others (like Oaktree Memorial's Companion Urn) are large enough to hold the ashes together in one main compartment.

When to Use a Companion Urn

There is no right or wrong time to use a companion urn. Some individuals choose to purchase one before death as a way of honoring their relationship and having a plan in place for their final resting place. Others may choose an urn for ashes after the passing of their loved one as a way to bring them close once again.

If the individuals have expressed their wishes to be buried or scattered together, companion urns are the ideal solution. They also allow flexibility in planning funerary arrangements as they can accommodate both individuals at once instead of needing separate urns or burials.
