The Concord Memorial
Angular Design

Our newest generation of Concord models are manufactured with a 100% granite exterior and interior.  Each niche is secured with a Key locking, powder coated aluminum security door. The Concord columbarium has a double size granite shutter that is designed to cover both the top and bottom niches.

The Single Sided Concord is an excellent design option for hillside applications where slanted granite niches can be installed to accommodate landscape elevation changes.   In larger more open space applications, our Double Sided Concord Model may be the preferred design for areas where lower site lines are more desirable. We offer two Double Sided Concord options: the Double Sided Concord with a planter insert in the center, or the Double Sided Concord with a flat roof.

We have the design capability to customize the niche configuration, layout and granite colors to employ the Concord columbarium features. Granite end posts and sculptured granite finials can be added to provide more architectural elements. As a custom manufacturer, Sunset is able to create any sculptural shape or finial desired for the end posts and decorative features. Don’t hesitate to inquire about a more customized columbarium version that will complement the cemetery setting.

The Ascension
A Unique Memorial

The Ascension

We believe you deserve the best. Our columbaria are built to stand the test of time and are an exquisite focal piece, delivering stunning results that will help your business grow. We understand the memorial business and bring with it years of experience and a talented staff dedicated to your success.

Sunset has created our Ascension line of niches to help cemeteries transform the bottom row into highly sought after niches. By angling the front face of the niche door and increasing the interior niche size, we have created demand for the least desirable niche.

The niches can be marketed as individual niches, or the interior divider wall can be removed to create one oversized family style niche with space for 4, 6 or even 8 urns.

Standard features for all of Sunset’s curved columbaria are a 100% granite exterior (lifetime warranty on the granite), highlighted by our key-locked interior aluminum door for added security and ease of use by cemetery staff.

Interior-niche designs use either our all-aluminum, powder-coated interior or our nylene interior-niche system.

What are Memorial Walls?

Today many people are choosing cremation instead of having traditional burials. Cemeteries across North America have created special gardens for people to scatter cremated remains (also called ashes). These gardens are called scattering gardens.

When people want to scatter cremated remains, they can choose scattering gardens, natural settings (e.g., park, mountain), designated land, or bodies of water. Where they can scatter ashes depends on the laws for that certain area.

Memorial walls are a place for families to go to remember their loved ones after they’ve scattered someone’s ashes. Many scattering gardens have freestanding memorial walls beside them so families and friends have a beautiful place to pay tribute to the person they’ve lost.

Does Sunset Have Different Types of Custom Memorial Walls?

Sunset’s cemetery memorial walls are beautiful sculptures that stand out as a focal point to any memorial area. People can be commemorated on the wall with inscriptions (done onsite) or plaques. Sunset has a wide selection of memorial walls for scattering gardens and other types of memorials. We can also create custom memorial walls. If you’re not exactly sure what you want, our design team can share ideas and help you find a design that you’ll be happy with. Our custom memorial walls are designed to fit anywhere and compliment any area. Our ability to do custom work also makes it possible to put dedicated memorial spaces on the side of a columbarium wall. You can choose onsite inscriptions or spaces for specific plaque shapes.

Family Cremation Monument
What is a Family Cremation Monument?

Family Monument

Today more people are choosing to be cremated instead of having a traditional burial. This means special types of memorials are needed. A family cremation monument (also called a family columbarium or family memorial) is one option for this.

Sunset’s Family Heritage Model is a family memorial that holds cremated remains for a family (or families). It’s an above ground, outdoor structure with small niches that hold cremated remains. This family memorial is compact and efficient. It can hold up to 12 urns making it the perfect resting place for many generations of family members.

We can help design a family columbarium that will reflect your personal tastes and spiritual customs and beliefs. You can choose the size, style, and any other features you want. We work closely with cemeteries to make sure that your design will follow their standards and guidelines.

Family Cremation Memorial
Feature & Benefits

Sunset’s cremation family memorial features include:
  • a free-standing granite unit that’s 4 feet and 7 inches high
  • a 2½ feet by 3 feet and 7 inch footprint to maximize the land
  • a solid granite gable roof
  • polished granite niche faceplates that can be engraved or have plaques added

 

Standing Granite Shutters

Sunset is the first in the world to create standing granite shutters for our cremation monuments. These shutters help prevent condensation in the niches when different materials come in contact with one another.

Key-Lockable Inner Security Doors

At Sunset, our cremation monuments have inner security doors that lock with a key. This feature gives people extra piece of mind since many columbaria are in unmonitored cemeteries. It also helps lower security costs when granite doors need to be removed to be engraved.
