Lethbridge Columbarium

Our columbarium or plural form of the word columbaria are above ground outdoor structures that contain small niche compartments to hold cremated remains. Family columbaria may hold the remains of multiple family members, where commercial columbaria are created for churches and cemeteries to hold multiple cremation urns in individualized niches.

Just like our customized headstone and cemetery marker manufacturing, our Sunset Stone columbarium models can be customized to meet every family, cemetery, or church design concept.

If you find a grave in Mountain View Cemetery in Lethbridge Alberta or any other cemetery in southern Alberta and wish to learn more about the type and size of memorial allowed on the cemetery plot, consider calling us.  Sometimes family columbaria are allowed in sections where in-ground burials are allowed.  Perhaps the cemetery has specific locations for family columbaria options.  We can provide you with the correct links or contacts to answer any questions you may have about Lethbridge cemetery by-laws or the cemeteries we work with in Southern Alberta.

Lethbridge Memorial & Headstone FAQ's

We understand that this can be an overwhelming and emotional time for families.  The process of deciding on the best Lethbridge cemetery monument company to memorialize your loved ones can seem daunting.

At Sunset Memorial & Stone, we can certainly help you make your own headstone.  The only issue is, not all types of stones have the durability of granite memorials. Granite headstones are the most durable stone. Today, granite is considered the standard product for cemetery headstones as it is impervious to environmental freeze thaw stresses or pollution.  Local limestones, sandstones, slate products and even marble products are porous stones that will all break down over time. 

Purchasing a granite stone, is most advisable as it can withstand the freeze and thaw temperatures that happen in Lethbridge’s northern climate.  We ensure that our granite arrives without any cracks to ensure that the stone will not be impacted by the elements.  Simply take a tour of the historical sections in the Lethbridge cemeteries to see how fragile the soft stones used in the past are standing up. 

Which leads us back to the question, “Can you make your own headstone?”.  If you are a craftsman with access to sandblasting equipment and sculpting tools hard enough to chisel granite, you can design and create your own monument.  But one factor to consider is installation and insurance required for installations. Cemeteries in Lethbridge may have rules and regulations about whether individuals or certain companies have access to the cemetery sites for installations.  So, it is recommended to ask the cemetery management what is acceptable prior to tackling such a project yourself.

Or better yet, if you wish to have total “design control” regarding the size, granite color, shape and design of the monument, and total artistic freedom to create your own customized graphic art details, then look no further, you are in safe hands with Sunset Memorial & Stone.  Our graphic department will work with you and your family to create the most unique and personalized monument ever seen.  For three decades now we have been in the business of creating beautiful custom monument designs for families.  We have the design and manufacturing capability to deliver custom designed, custom artistic sculptures, custom headstones, personalized grave markers for cemeteries in Lethbridge or its surrounding communities.

If you are focused on a monument manufacturer in Lethbridge.  Simply pick up the phone.  Call us. And ask to collaborate with one of our talented graphic artists to turn your vision into a reality.  We will take your direction.  We will focus on the cemetery plot site lines and Lethbridge cemetery plot rules and regulations.   Let us help you and your family create the perfect custom cemetery monument without lifting a finger.

A gravestone is synonymous to a tombstone.  Only tombstone is a more historical term used to describe a cemetery monument.   Today we tend to use the words “cemetery monuments” or “headstones” to describe the memorial set at the head of a cemetery plot.  All the afore mentioned words are commonly used synonymously to describe this type of cemetery product. 

Sunset Stone can offer a wide variety of options when it comes to memorial markers in Lethbridge. Our cheapest headstone is a flat grave marker, which can begin as low as $934.00 – * which includes one-on-one time working with our graphic arts designers. We have an extensive art gallery in our repertoire of images from which to choose.   You will be able to personalize your flat grave marker with the guidance of our experienced design team. We will not begin the inscription process until we have full approval and sign off on your design.  Our team can work with you over the phone, email and via video conferencing from the comfort of your own home. We work hard to work within your budget.  Don’t hesitate to call and ask us for a quote.

It depends on the size and detail, but you can expect Sunset Stone to be able to install a monument within a few weeks (if we have the granite in stock). Some factors that may affect our timeliness include how long you take to approve your design, if the monument is in the back lot, where it will be installed, weather conditions, and the cemetery’s seasonal timeline for installations. If you require a quick installation, we may be able to install in as little as 48 to 72 hours as long as the stone material is in stock.
