When you choose aquamation, you receive 20-30% more ashes than you would receive from a traditional fire cremation.

In many parts of the world, particularly in North America, we process the minerals into a fine powder for placement in an urn. This step is consistent through aquamation and flame cremation.

You may need a larger urn. Sometimes a larger-sized urn will be required due to the increased volume of ashes compared to flame cremation. This is not a hard and fast rule but varies for each individual case.
