Cremation niches are shallow recesses, usually within a wall used to display a statue, memorial, urn or similar. Niches are the ideal resting place for loved ones who have been cremated. Choosing the right resting place for your loved will serve an immediate need and provide an opportunity to preserve your family’s history too.

As cremation is a popular disposition option for many, various cemeteries offer columbarium walls which are designed to house niches. By choosing to house your loved one’s ashes in such a wall, you are enabling other friends and family members to pay their respects and visit when convenient for them. Investing in a niche is the best way to guarantee you can memorialize your loved one for a lifetime.

What are the Benefits of Choosing Niches as a Final Resting Place?

Niches kept in columbarium walls are extremely space efficient when compared to actual burial grave sites and are a more cost-effective alternative to purchasing a grave plot. At Basic Funerals, we can assist you in selecting the appropriate resting place for your loved one.
