A Columbarium Niche is also known as a cremation niche, is a single compartment within the columbarium that holds a person’s cremated remains. The niche can be part of elaborate, decorative structures or a simple room with shelves. It can be indoors or outside. The front can be clear glass to display the urn or tucked away behind a metal door. Columbarium niches vary in size as well, most cemeteries offer several sizes for individuals, couples, or families. There may also be larger, more expensive niches or smaller, and more budget-friendly niches in the same columbarium. The specific sizes and options will vary with each location and design.
