Columbariums

With cremation rates at an all-time high, in both Canada and the United States (68.8% and 48.6% respectively in 2015), the need for columbariums in every cemetery is undeniable.

There are many reasons why someone may choose cremation and/or interment in a columbarium:

  • they don't like the idea of being buried underground
  • when you factor in the cost of two caskets and a headstone for a couple, the cost of cremation can be is significantly less
  • continuing family tradition; if others have also been cremated
  • geography of the cemetery; in-ground interment may be difficult due ot the water table or the ground freezing in the winter. Many cemeteries do not allow in-ground interments during the winter months
  • they may want to be scattered or buried somewhere other than the cemetery

When Nelson Granite started designing and building columbariums, we vowed to make the best units available on the market today. Our company knows granite, quarrying it directly from the Canadian Shield and manufacturing columbariums right here, in Northwestern Ontario. With the idea of a true forever product in mind, Nelson Granite columbariums are made of 100% granite, designed to stand the test of time in your cemetery.

There are many reasons why someone may choose a mausoleum over traditional burial:

  • they prefer full body burial but want to be above ground
  • continuing a family tradition; if others have been interred in a mausoleum
  • family stature; mausoleums come in all sizes and designs
  • geography of the cemetery; in-ground interment may be difficult due to the water table or the ground freezing in the winter. Many cemeteries do not allow in-ground interments during the winter months.
