Non-Cemetery Cremation Memorials

Non-Cemetery Cremation Memorials For Backyards, Churches and Private Resting Places

Rome Monument of Pittsburgh designs, sells and installs cremation memorials that are not set or located in a cemetery setting.  While not feasible for traditional burials, the backyard, a church or another location on private property can become an ideal resting place for individuals who have chosen to be cremated. The urn or ashes can either be placed in the ground or inside a granite cremation monument such as a bench, boulder, upright monument, or statue. In addition, families can select from our cast resin line of cremation memorials for their loved one whose remains have been scattered or kept at home. These non-cemetery cremation memorials can also contain the cremated remains and are shaped like trees and rocks that are found in the landscape of the Tri-State area. In recent years, cremation estates (a columbarium with niches for the cremated remains of family members) have become increasingly popular options and are also available at Rome Monuments.

For four generations, Rome Monument has specialized in selling cremation memorials that set in locations other than cemeteries—most commonly right in your own home or on your property. A beautiful non-cemetery cremation memorial starts with a call to Rome Monument at 724-770-0100, where you can learn more and schedule a free consultation at one of our seven convenient locations in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County and Western Pennsylvania. You can choose from numerous options for a non-cemetery cremation memorial:

  • Cremation urns hold the cremated remains of the deceased and can be placed in your home, in the ground on your property, inside an above-ground monument, or in a family or private columbarium.  
  • A cremation urn can be inserted into a headstone or monument niche that is carved into a granite headstone, monument, bench, natural boulder, sculpture, carving, or statue.  
  • The cremated remains can be placed inside a niche in a columbarium--a free-standing building or wall that holds one or more urns. Churches sometimes have their own columbariums exclusively for members of their congregation.

Non-cemetery cremation memorials that are for sale can be adorned with custom monument designs such as etched portraits, personalized engravings, epitaph inscriptions, etched scenes and images, bas reliefs and sculpted elements that commemorate the life and achievements of the deceased. They often feature symbols and imagery that convey an individual’s specific nationality or religion and are available in a variety of styles and shapes. You can select from a wide variety of granite colors for both traditional and cremation memorials in different price ranges.
