In 1985, the Cremation Association of North America conducted an urn-capacity study, the results of which suggested that the average volume of cremated remains for an adult was 200 cubic inches. In response, many urn companies re-created their styles to meet the new industry standard. Meierjohan-Wengler, one of the country’s most prominent urn manufacturers and suppliers and now part of Aurora Casket Company, was one of the first to respond, doing so with the creation of their 200-Plus series.
