Why Choose Us


Cremation products are our specialty at the Butterworth Urn Company. We do not sell funeral stationary or caskets. This allows us to focus on what families want most when choosing a cremation urn. Our products are featured in cemeteries and funeral homes across Canada because families choose them. Since 1996 we have been searching the globe to bring you a selection of urns that are both attractive and cost effective.


One of the greatest challenges when sourcing new products is the cost of the product. It is not enough for an urn be attractive and well made. It must also be priced so that families see value in the product. Our urns are designed to support retail pricing that makes sense, both for you and the families you serve.


We ship out urns every day for at-need situations and are acutely aware of your time requirements. Regular ground, expedited, and overnight delivery services are all offered whenever available. Our urns are shipped properly packaged to ensure a timely and safe delivery. And, of course, everything we sell is guaranteed to meet or exceed your expectations. You can count on our service.


We are regularly asked by our customers to source new, exciting products. As a result, our product offering changes every year. Check out our new catalog to see the latest developments and innovations.


One of the many reasons people choose Butterworth Urns is because they value a supplier with a proven track record of success and reliability. We have been a trusted source for cremation urns in the past and look forward to continuing to be so in the future. With this in mind, we appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the growth of your business now and in the years to come!
