New Columbarium at the Colborne Cemetery
72 niches have officially been installed at the Colborne Cemetery in the Township of Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh, providing an alternative to the traditional in-ground burials.
The granite columbarium, a six-sided above ground structure, provides a respectable inurnment option for individuals and their loved ones.
At a cost comparable to other cemeteries in the area, each niche holds up to two urns and includes engraving of up to two names.
Mayor Glen McNeil said the Township recognizes that people are moving towards cremation and urn interments as alternatives to traditional burials.
“Times are changing and we are ready to embrace the change.” McNeil said. “I encourage people to take a look; Council is very proud of taking on this initiative. It’s going to be a nice resting place for loved ones”.
The Colborne Cemetery is located at 36756 Saltford Road.
