The Ossuarium® Explained

Canterbury Ossuarium® with Heavy Base and Thick Capstone

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.

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.
