Columbarium Niche Memorial at Croydon Crematorium

Why have a Columbarium Niche Memorial?

The Columbarium Niche Memorial has been introduced to meet the needs of those people who would prefer to have cremated remains rest in a personal high quality niche rather than have them laid to rest loosely within the Garden of Remembrance or elsewhere. Each niche cell can accommodate two sets of remains with each casket being a maximum of 25cm high by 36cm wide by 42cm deep.

The Columbarium Niches are located in a tranquil courtyard to the rear of the crematorium’s West chapel.

The niches are faced in highly polished black Granite to enhance the visual appeal. The initial inscription on the cover plaque is included in the price with the letters skillfully enhanced in silver enamel. Further inscriptions can be added when necessary for an additional fee and if space permits.

An area in front of the niches has been constructed for the placing of floral tributes.

Please note that it is not permitted for items to be fixed to the plaques or any other part of the niche structure. Any unauthorised items identified will be removed without notice.

Order process

On receipt of your order you will receive a layout drawing of your memorial inscription which is designed for you to check, make any corrections, if necessary, and provide approval for us to proceed.

A total of 8 lines are available for the whole inscription. Space can be left for the addition of further inscriptions. When considering wording for the memorial it is not necessary to fill the whole tablet, it is quite acceptable to use only three or four lines and the remaining lines being used at a later date for further inscriptions if required.

Once an order has been placed, the plaque will usually be inscribed and ready to place within 6 weeks.

When this is completed a date and time can be arranged to place the remains into the niche.
