A columbarium is an above-ground structure with individual compartments, known as niches, where cremation urns are placed. As an alternative to a cremation burial plot, many cemeteries now offer the option of purchasing a niche in a large, shared community columbarium unit.
In our experience, many families are reluctant when it comes to a community columbarium as a tribute to their loved ones or themselves. As a result, the more personal alternative, the family columbarium, is an increasingly popular choice. Available in a wide range of colours and designs, a family columbarium can be personalized to create a meaningful and dignified memorial tribute that is exclusive to your family.
Additional family columbarium designs are available upon request. For more information about cremation and your options, please contact us today.
I just wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with the memorial that Summit Memorials made for our mother, Gertrude Rhinhart. Outstanding workmanship.
I also wanted to thank you for your patience and guidance in choosing a memorial for mom.
Best wishes for the holiday season"
