What are Cremation Niches?
A cremation niche is similar to a mausoleum. Typically, there is a wall with recessed compartments for placing cremation urns permanently. The main purpose of a cremation niche is to give friends and family a place to visit the cremated remains of a loved one.
Our glass front niches provide a dry, climate-controlled atmosphere and a perfect way to display your loved ones’ urn. Most families tend to include small mementos inside the display as well. Our glass-front niches are well lighted and display the beauty and elegance of each urn. A proper way to honor your lost loved one. Anyone who comes to visit will be able to see the mementos behind the glass front.
The exterior niches we provide are made from granite. You have the choice to select from a few different styles of name plates. Our exterior niches provide a great view of the cemetery and essentially place the urn within the nature around the cemetery.
Popular Reasons For Choosing Cremation Niches

- Niches are a better option for those who want to visit the final resting place. When inside, you do not need to worry about the elements. So there is an element of comfort.
