ColumbariumEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
A columbarium (plural columbaria or columbariums) is a place for the respectful and usually public storage of cinerary urns (i.e., urns holding a deceased’s cremated remains).
Columbaria can be either free standing units, or part of a Mausoleum or another building. Some manufacturers do produce columbaria that are built entirely off-site and brought to the cemetery by a large truck.
In some cases, columbaria are built into church structures.
