19 Tealight Cremation Urns to Light a Candle in Memory

Light a candle in memory of a loved one

Tealight cremation urns provide a way to subtly display your loved one’s remains in a way that truly honors their memory. Each time you light the candle, you can visualize the way they brought so much beautiful light into your life.

Each of these tealight urns hold at least a small amount of cremated remains, or “ashes,” typically in the lower section of the urn. You will need to provide your own tealight candle, but each of these memorials includes a candle holder to properly display and light the tealight of your choice.

Tealight Cremation Urns to Light a Candle in Memory of a Loved One

We will list these beautiful memorial candle urns in order of size. Full or standard sized urns will hold all the remains of an average adult, while the smaller urns are ideal for pet remains or for use when dividing the ashes. The “keepsake” size is typically used for a very small amount of remains, often kept when the remains are buried, scattered, or kept by another family member.

  • Standard size (~ 200 cubic inches)
  • Small or Pet size (~ 20-100 cubic inches)
  • Keepsake size (~ 1-40 cubic inches)


Standard adult sized cremation urns with a capacity of roughly ~ 200 cubic inches, able to hold the cremated remains of an individual who weighed about 200 lbs. There are very few full-sized tealight urns on the market; most are smaller sizes of pet or keepsake urns. Three of the four are the only 200 cubic inch urns we could find, and the fourth is just 125 cubic inches so almost more in the “small” size category.

1. Swirling Ceramic Sculpture Art Tealight Cremation Urn

195 cubic inches

A full-size adult urn (195 cubic inches) in a beautiful ceramic sculpture form. A tealight candle is placed in the designated area inside the oval, brightening the piece and accenting the unique swirls with lifelike movement.

Above, we show the stunning “Craquelure” finish, with seemingly ancient crackles throughout the piece. Other finishes and colors include Dark Sand, Black Gloss, Beige Gray, and more.

Optional smaller keepsake urns are available to match, these do not include a space for a tealight but perfectly compliment the full-size original. Made in Belgium but can ship very quickly to the USA and other parts of the world, typically within just a few days.

4. Handcrafted Ceramic Tealight Cremation Urn

125 cubic inches

Handcrafted in Boulder, Colorado, this stunning pottery urn features one of the most attractive tealight candle lids we have found. Each urn is thrown by hand, pit fired, hand glazed, and completely one of a kind.


Small and pet sized urns are designed to hold a portion of the ashes for an adult, or all the remains for a smaller individual. Also used for household pets such as dogs and cats. Again, figure that 1 lbs of the person’s or pet’s body weight will equal approximately 1 cubic inch of remains.

5. Tealight Brass Cremation Urn with Doves

20 cubic inches

The Tealight Brass Cremation Urn with Doves is our best-selling decorative tealight. Includes space underneath that holds a tiny amount of cremated ashes. This urn is ideal for storing a small amount when the “ashes” are divided up among relatives. For the matching full-size version, which does not include a tealight, see here.

Crafted from solid brass and finished with protective GlossCoat technology to preserve the lustre of its shine. The doves design is laser etched over a hand-engraved blue enamel inlay, representing your loved one’s journey homewards.

12. Tealight Brass Cremation Urn in Blue Mosaic
