White Marble Mausoleum, Columbarium

( 18 )

As the world population increases, cemeteries in big cities appear as a serious problem: Either you cannot find a place or the burial places are very expensive. In some highly populated countries, cremation has even been made compulsory. However, this problem does not exist in columbarium's where cremated corpses are kept. As cremation expand in popularity, so do the options for what to do with cremated remains. Ashes can be buried, scattered, turned into a tree, and even sent into space. However, for those that want a more traditional option, the placement of ashes in a columbarium is an excellent choice. A columbarium is a structure used to store and often display urns containing cremated remains. The structure is typically a wall, room, or building that can be indoors or outdoors. A columbarium often has designated areas called niches. A niche holds the urns and has features that help remember and memorialize a loved one. They can include an inscription or small pictures of the deceased and small personal items or mementos. You can find examples of columbarium rich design, in which granite is used because of its long durability, on Stonecontact.com.
