The Heritage Family Columbarium

Today more people are choosing to be cremated instead of having traditional burials. Because of this, columbaria are becoming more popular. A family columbarium is the perfect choice for people who want a columbarium that’s more private and personalized. At Sunset, we have beautiful designs you can choose from and you can add features to make your family columbarium special and unique.

What is a Family Columbarium?
  • A columbarium is an above ground, outdoor structure with small niches that hold cremated remains.
  • A family columbarium is a columbarium that’s created for a family (or families) so their cremated remains are kept all together in one structure.
Does Sunset have Different Types of Family Columbaria?
  • Sunset has many different family columbarium designs. Get in touch with us to find out more.

The Heritage

Our most popular design is the Heritage model. This model is based on an iconic, traditional monument design, which we’ve made into a modern, smaller version of a family columbarium. Our Heritage models can be customized and they fit well along cemetery pathways, in cemetery nature gardens, or on family plots.

These family columbarium units come with a grey granite exterior. You can choose another colour of granite for the doors and back wall or you can choose to have the whole unit in grey granite.

Standard features for all of Sunset’s family columbaria include a:

  • 100% granite exterior
  • lifetime warranty on the granite
  • key-locked interior aluminum door, which is secure and easy for cemetery staff to use
