COLUMBARIUM

The Town of Delisle has purchased a 24-niche columbarium for the Delisle Cemetery. (see example below)

A columbarium is a structure for the respectful and public storage of funerary urns, holding cremated remains of the deceased. Each space in the structure is called a niche and they are capable of holding two urns. Not everyone wants to be interred in the ground or wants to keep the ashes of a loved one displayed in their home.

The cost of a niche is $800.00 plus taxes and the bronze plaque to go on the niche is $525.00 plus taxes.  This includes the original plaque and one extra date plaque.  Any additional date plaques would be $50.00 plus taxes. (see information and examples below).

The total cost for the purchase of a niche would be $1,325.00 plus applicable taxes.

These will be available by mid- September, 2021 and will be for sale shortly. Watch for updates.
