Browse Pictures of Cemetery Structures For Cremated Remains
Cremated remains can be preserved in cemetery buildings and structures called columbariums or mausoleums. A columbarium is an above ground monument with recessed compartments (niches) that hold the cremation urns. Public columbariums are used by multiple families while private family columbariums are for one specific family. A mausoleum, while built primarily for the grave, tomb or burial chamber of an individual, can also have a section with a columbarium. Designed and built by the memorial architects at Rome Monuments, our cemetery cremation buildings can be decorated with beautiful custom designs such as etchings, engravings, bas reliefs, statues, 3D carvings, and symbols and imagery that convey the specific nationality or religion of the deceased. They can be for any number of urns and come in a variety of styles and shapes. Niche doors can also be etched and engraved with personalized custom designs. Cemeteries in Pittsburgh often permit the use of different monument types including columbariums and mausoleums to mark a burial plot. You can select from a wide variety of granite colors for both traditional and cremation memorials in different price ranges.
