Pequest Union Cemetery Columbarium Information
A columbarium is a vault or other structure with recesses in the walls to hold urns containing cremated remains. The Pequest Union Cemetery Columbarium offers an above ground option to intern ashes for those who wish to have their remains in a permanent place, but do not want to be buried under ground (niches can be opened if required). The internment of ashes in these structures dates back to Roman times, and are in use throughout the world today. Each niche has space for two ash burials - as a result each niche at Pequest Union Cemetery will accommodate two urns measuring 5.5" x 5.5" x 7". A bluestone patio with plantings surround the structure and benches provide a comfortable place to sit and reflect peacefully. For pricing please visit our cemetery services page.
