Today more people are choosing to be cremated instead of having traditional burials. Sunset’s cremation memorials and family columbaria are beautiful pieces of artwork created to hold cremated remains.
What’s the Difference Between a Cremation Memorial and a Family Columbarium?
- A cremation memorial (also called cremation columbarium) is an above ground, outdoor structure with small compartments called niches. The niches hold cremated remains in urns or other vessels. There’s also room in the niches for meaningful personal items.
- A family columbarium is a cremation memorial that’s made for a specific family (or families). If you’re interested in a family columbarium, Sunset has many designs for you to choose from. There are different shapes, styles, colours, and sizes. Talk to someone from our sales team if you have questions or want more information.
