In North American cemeteries, the family columbarium is fast becoming a popular interment option. Like a traditional family crypt or tomb, the family columbarium is designed to inter family cremains in a smaller more customized niche structure compared to larger commercial columbaria structures. Selecting a family columbarium is both a personal and collective choice. Ensure that the family columbarium you choose can be customized to meet your family’s wishes. Personal engravings, structural styles and photos can be added to evoke cherished familial themes and ancestral traditions.
