Contrary to the burial of a coffin, the burial of ashes in a cemetery plot is not the only option a family has after cremation. The ashes can be scattered at a meaningful natural location, kept at home or placed in a columbarium. A columbarium is a place for the respectful and usually public storage of urns holding a deceased’s cremated remains.
One of the advantages of our columbarium spaces is the fact that family members can visit to recollect, in the presence of the urn, without having to consider the weather. Rain or snow, sunshine, clouds or violent winds will not intervene since our columbarium walls are located inside our funeral parlors to guarantee you will never have to brave the cold or any other element to enjoy a quiet time with your departed loved one. We have a columbarium in Vaudreuil-Dorion and one in Rigaud.
Renting a space in our columbarium walls is really inexpensive and our rental contracts are not binding in any way. With the rental of a columbarium niche, you have a flexible option while you take time to decide what the final resting place for your loved one will be. Should you decide for the columbarium to be the final location for the urn, you can renew your rental contract as many times as required.
It is also a great option for couples who want to be buried together: the urn of the first spouse to leave can be temporarily placed in a columbarium space until the death of the other spouse occurs. This way, the family can respect their wishes to be buried together simultaneously, even if they die many years apart.
