Niches & Urns

An urn is a container that stores cremated remains. St Michael’s encourages families to provide a dignified final resting place such as a niche columbarium or an in-ground burial with a memorial for the deceased.

A niche is a space inside a columbarium.

A columbarium is a structure in a mausoleum that has recesses in the wall to receive an urn.

A mausoleum is a community or private building or structure that houses the deceased.

Niches

St. Michael’s Cemetery offers two types of niches: marble- or granite- front niches, and glass-front niches.

granite niches

Marble/Granite-Front Niches

Granite and marble front niches hold one urn. The front of the niche can be inscribed with the deceased’s name and years of birth and death. You may also add a flower vase, religious emblem, or porcelain portrait of the deceased.

glass front niches

Glass-Front Niches

Glass-front niches come in four different sizes: single, double, triple, and quad. You may decorate the inside of the niche with photos and small sentimental memorabilia of the deceased.
