What is a Columbarium?
Columbariums are above-ground, outdoor structures made up of individual niches specifically for the entombment of cremated remains. Each niche houses one or more urns containing the cremated remains of the loved ones.
For those choosing cremation Oliver’s owns and maintains its own Columbarium Walls conveniently located within both the Grande Prairie City and the Beaverlodge Town Cemeteries. Our columbarium walls are both warm and inviting, maintaining an atmosphere of dignity, serenity and spirituality that appeals to all faiths.
While cremated remains can be kept at home by families or scattered somewhere significant to the deceased, a columbarium provides friends and family a perpetual place to come to remember and visit. Columbarium walls do not take up a lot of space and may prove to be a less expensive alternative to a cremation plot in a cemetery. To personalize your loved one’s memory, the front of each niche may include an engraving or bronze plaque. Columbariums can be tailored to suit individual needs and preferences.
Columbariums provide a distinct and dignified cremation interment option that blends elegantly into the natural landscape as an everlasting tribute to your loved one.
