About the unit

A granite columbarium is a free-standing memorial unit which sits above ground and where each individual chamber is marked with a memorial plaque. Each unit can contain up to two cremated remains, and a vase is incorporated into the design so that a small spray of flowers can be placed beside the plaque.

The container for cremated remains can be made of metal, wood or cardboard, but must be no more than 7” by 7” in size. You can purchase a suitable metal urn from the cemetery office.

The columbarium units are made from polished granite so very little maintenance is required, and the plaque can be washed occasionally with clean water.


The unit allows up to two interments of cremated remains to be marked by a memorial plaque with an inscription of your choice. You must purchase the plaque through the cemeteries office.

Once the plaque has been inscribed, the burial of cremated remains can take place and the memorial unit can be secured. Alternatively, you can have the burial in the unit before the memorial is ready. The cemetery staff will then place the memorial on the unit when it is delivered and will let you know when it is in place.

No additional flower vases, pot plants or other memorialisation are permitted.


Download the notice of interment of cremated remains, complete it and send it to the Cemetery Office. A mutually convenient date and time can then be arranged for the interment to take place.
