An Eturnal Columbarium

An Eturnal columbarium is a structure or building that contains niches or compartments designed to hold the cremated remains of deceased individuals. The word “columbarium” comes from the Latin word “columba,” meaning “dove,” because the original columbaria in ancient Rome were structures with small compartments designed to house doves.

In modern times, columbaria are commonly used for the storage of cremated remains, typically in small urns. Columbaria can be found in cemeteries, funeral homes, churches, and other places where people may choose to inter cremated remains. Some columbaria are designed for outdoor use, while others are located indoors.

Columbaria can be a popular choice for individuals who choose cremation as their preferred method of disposition, but who also want to have a permanent place for their remains to be stored and remembered. Family members may also choose to purchase a niche in an Eturnal columbarium™ as a way to keep the remains of a loved one close and accessible.

An Eturnal Niche

The use of niches for interment dates back to ancient civilizations such as the Romans, who created small compartments in walls or structures called columbaria to hold the ashes of cremated individuals. In modern times, niches have become a popular choice for those who choose cremation as a means of disposition, providing a permanent resting place for the remains that can be visited and remembered by loved ones. The popularity of niches has led to the creation of many different types of structures designed to hold them, including columbaria, mausoleums, and niche walls.

Locations

Columbarium niches can be found in a variety of locations, including cemeteries, funeral homes, churches, and other places of worship. They may also be located in indoor or outdoor mausoleums or other structures specifically designed for the interment of cremated remains. Some public parks and nature reserves also offer columbarium niches as an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional burial or scattering of ashes. Additionally, there are private companies that specialize in the sale and installation of columbarium niches in a range of settings.

Benefits

Sure, here are some more details on the benefits of using an Eturnal columbarium™ niche:

  1. A permanent, designated resting place: A columbarium niche provides a permanent resting place for the remains of a loved one. This can provide peace of mind for family members, who know that their loved one’s remains will be protected and respected for generations to come.
  2. A place for visitation and remembrance: A columbarium niche provides a designated place for family and friends to visit and pay their respects to the deceased. This can be an important aspect of the grieving process and can provide a sense of closure for those left behind.
  3. Protection from the elements and potential damage: Columbarium niches provide protection from the elements, including weather and potential vandalism, which can help ensure that the remains are preserved and respected.
  4. Space efficiency: Because columbarium niches are typically smaller than traditional burial plots, they can be used to store many remains in a compact area. This can be an advantage for crowded cemeteries or for families who wish to keep their loved ones’ remains together in a small space.
  5. Potential cost savings: Compared to traditional burial options, columbarium niches can be more cost-effective. This is because they require less space and do not require the purchase of a burial plot or grave marker. Additionally, some cemeteries offer discounts for families who purchase multiple columbarium niches.

Costs

The cost of an Eturnal columbarium™ niche for an urn can vary depending on several factors, including the location of the columbarium, the type of niche chosen, and any additional services or fees. Here are some of the costs that may be associated with obtaining an Eturnal columbarium™ niche:

  1. Niche purchase fee: The cost of purchasing the niche itself can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, depending on the location and type of niche.
  2. Installation fee: Some columbaria charge an installation fee for placing the urn in the niche. This fee can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.
  3. Opening and closing fee: Many columbaria charge a fee for opening and closing the niche for interment. This fee can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.
  4. Engraving fee: If the columbarium offers engraving services for the niche cover or plaque, there may be an additional fee for this service.
  5. Maintenance fee: Some columbaria charge an annual maintenance fee to cover the cost of cleaning and upkeep of the niche and surrounding area. This fee can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars per year.
