On the surface, the Ossuarium looks like one of our traditional Pre-Assembled columbarium models. In fact, it does have companion niches exactly like a traditional Pre-Assembled columbarium.
This provides an affordable interment option for those who do not desire a niche. It also offers a much larger return on investment than a columbarium, often nearly double.
The Ossuary Vault
The ossuary vault is above ground. It is accessed through one or more of the upper columbarium niches. In the future, when the ossuary is full, the access niche or niches can be sold as a traditional niche.
Soft Urns* are deposited into the center core of the memorial, where they rest in the shared ossuary vault. A variety of Soft Urn™ options are available. Embroidered inscriptions and emblems are also available through Eickhof. Contact us to design yours!
The Memorial Band®
Those who are put to rest inside the ossuary vault are memorialized by having their name, birth year, and death year inscribed on an Eickhof Memorial Band.
