Columbarium

Providing Cremation Options with Custom Columbarium

As the popularity and adoption of cremation increases, cemeteries need to adapt to provide a fitting, permanent resting place for these remains. One option more cemeteries are considering is a columbarium – a large granite monument with individual spaces for cremated remains. Columbaria are available in countless sizes and shapes – each one custom designed for your needs.

At Weaver Memorials, we can design, create, and install a custom columbarium to your facility. Designed with state-of-the-art CAD software and made with the highest quality granite from Rock of Ages, our skilled artisans will create a beautiful tribute that will quickly become a centerpiece for your cemetery.

Benefits of a Columbarium

The rise of non-traditional burial options – along with the ever-increasing demand for space – has led cemeteries to add a distinguished, permanent final resting place for created remains.

This type of memorial allows you to grow vertically, using previously unused above-ground space for burials. It can be installed indoors or outdoors, giving you even more flexibility in placement and layout.

A columbarium will lead to reduced costs for maintenance and watering, while also taking up less room. The cremation niches in a columbarium allow you to offer an attractive and affordable burial option in your facility.

Additional Uses for Columbaria

In addition to cemeteries, a columbarium is a good choice for other locations, including churches, retirement communities, colleges & universities, and other public places. They can be incorporated into larger monuments – including mausoleums and civic memorials – creating a peaceful place for reflection and remembrance.

Customizing a Columbarium

A columbarium can be completely customized to meet your desired style, dimensions, and needs. You can choose the granite color, decorative elements, and layout to create a truly unique columbarium. All of our columbaria are handcrafted by our skilled artisans and backed by the Rock of Ages perpetual warranty.

Additional customization options are available for the individual cremation niches. In addition to name and dates, you can allow for custom inscriptions – including verses, song lyrics, or epitaph. This gives the family the ability to create a personalized, permanent tribute to their loved one.
