How To Bury Cremated Remains

A columbarium can refer to a mausoleum or outdoor structure. The mausoleum is a large building designed with niches and crypts on the interior walls. The outdoor columbarium generally refers to freestanding walls or structures that hold cremains in niches in columbarium garden settings. Columbaria serve the same needs as that of a mausoleum. Like the spaces offered in a mausoleum for urn interment, the price of every niche in a columbarium depends on the size, location and the style desired. Once the urn is interred, the columbarium niche doors are secured with a key lockable inner security door and the granite face is secured in place.

Focus on A Select Religious Perspectives Towards Cremation

When the first crematorium was built in the United States in 1876, cremation was not considered to be an acceptable religious funerary practice. But over the years attitudes and beliefs regarding cremation have changed. The practice of cremation is turning out to be more common in North America. Although some religions forbid the practice of cremation, others have accepted the practice and today refer to "cremation" in their canon. Some religious denominations are adapting to these changes by integrating the practice into their funeral services. As the cremation rates in North America continue to rise, more religious groups are accepting cremation. Accordingly, religious cemeteries are adapting to these changes by designing columbarium cremation gardens that focus on "columbarium burial" or columbarium cremation interment.
