A cemetery niche or columbarium is similar to a mausoleum; it is a unique alternative for a loved one’s final resting place. Columbariums or cemetery niches are designated for the interment of cremated remains as another burial option alternative. Columbariums are often located indoors and can have glass niches, as well as marble or high-quality granite niche spaces.

Glass Cemetery Niche

Glass niches provide the family with the ability to view the cremation urn. Also, glass niches are spacious enough to allow family members to personalize the niche by placing pictures, memorabilia, and other items of the departed that have value for the family. Unlike different types of burial options, glass niches can be changed as pleased; the family can change the items within the niche to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries.

Marble Cemetery Niche

The most traditional form of niche is made of a marble or granite marker. These niches are similar to mausoleum crypts, with the only difference of being smaller in size and designed to fit cremated remains in specialized burial urns.

Browse Our Mausoleum Crypts

Mausoleums are part of a legendary tradition that honors our loved ones. Our gardens have spaces for indoor, outdoor, family, and private mausoleum crypts. Within our mausoleums, we have different types and configurations of fuernal crypts available to meet your loved ones’ wishes or your preferences.

Single Crypts

The most common type of mausoleum crypt. These spaces are designed for the entombment of casketed remains mainly. Both indoor and outdoor mausoleums have single crypt configurations. Single crypts are intended for one person.

Side-by-Side Companion Crypts

Side-by-side crypts are common among couples. Companion crypts share a double-wide shutter for memorialization. In this configuration, caskets are positioned next to each other horizontally. Side-by-side companion crypts are designed for two people.

True Companion Crypts

Sometimes referred to as side-by-side crypts as well, a true companion crypt holds two caskets end-to-end, as opposed to next to one another. True companion crypts share a single marker, and casket arrangement within the crypt can be personalized to fit your needs.

Westminster Family Crypts

Also known as family crypts, this style can accommodate multiple family members. Within Westminster family crypts, casket arrangements can also be customized to fit your needs. Each person may have his or her marker, or sometimes families choose to share a single large marker.
