A Columbarium is a structure designed to hold cremation urns.
The Columbarium lies inside the Council’s Grade II Listed non-conformist Chapel, one of a pair of listed Victorian Chapels at the Fairmile Cemetery and comprises hand-crafted hardwood cabinets holding glass-fronted niches. Each niche has its own soft interior lighting. There is a designated seating area in the Chapel for quiet contemplation.
Niches are of varying sizes and can accommodate up to four urns. They can be licenced for a 20-year period. This agreement can be renewed at the end of its term.
The cost of a single niche, for a period of 20 years is £1,300 and up to £2,300 for a family niche (including VAT).
