Is there a standard size for cremation ash containers provided

Resolved Question:

Is there a standard size for cremation ash containers provided by crematoriums. I plan on making urns in which the container from the crematorium can be placed inside without having to transfer the ashes.

Thank you for using JustAnswer!

A standard size is 5” depth and 6” width. Understand, however, that a person's body size varies. As a general matter, 1 pound of Body Weight = 1 cubic inch of Urn Space.

175 lbs. person needs an urn with 160 cubic inches
200 lbs. person needs an urn with 180 cubic inches
250 lbs. person needs an urn with 230 cubic inches
