Have you selected cremation as part of the funeral services for a loved one who has passed on ? If so, then you may have questions about your options following the cremation process. If you do not choose to scatter or keep the cremated remains, then you can take advantage of one of several cremation memorialization options.
A columbarium is a structure that can be indoors or outdoors and typically houses several or more cremation niches. These niches are recessed compartments that are designed to hold funeral urns. Columbaria can be a series of niches within a building, or they can take up walls, an entire room, or a whole structure. Niches come in a wide selection of sizes and styles, and their fronts can be anything from marble or bronze to clear glass or granite. Also, some niches are designed to hold more than one urn, and others allow space to store memorabilia that commemorate the life of the deceased.
You will find that many cemeteries and memorial parks have areas that are designated for the interment of cremated remains. One common example of this is a cremation garden. A cremation garden is a location that often features a wide selection of cremation niches, some of which may accommodate a memorial plaque or marker. The niches can be designed to blend in with the natural settings, such as cremation boulders, or they may be part of a columbarium within the garden.
If you would like to memorialize the cremated remains within a unique structure, then consider choosing a custom-made memorial bench. This option creates a lasting statement that is both beautiful and elegant. These benches can be designed to hold as many as 6 separate urns, providing a memorialization option for future generations.
