Cremation has been an end-of-life option for thousands of years. Even today, cremation is becoming more of an affordable and popular option.
Urns are commonly placed in niches above ground within the walls of churches, mausoleums, columbaria and other structures. Similar options will become available in our gardens over the coming years.
Within our Urn Garden it is common to have urns buried in a small vault known as the outer burial container. This option, although affordable, can sometimes still be difficult to arrange financially after taking into consideration cremation fees, a decorative urn, followed by a burial vault/container.
The Ossuary was designed with those in mind who are in need of a permanent, dignified and even more affordable final resting place for their loved one's cremated remains.
When selecting The Ossuary as a final resting place, the remains are deposited into 1 of 3 large concrete vaults located beneath the Ossuary garden. There they will rest permanently, and a name plaque can be purchased in the near future to be displayed on a pillar next to the Ossuary.
