The growing acceptance of cremation as a method of disposition has generated a demand for an attractive alternative of memorialization.

To respond to this demand, the City of Brantford, Parks & Recreation, has positioned columbaria in the Eternal Peace Gardens located within Mount Hope Cemetery, as well as within the Peace Plaza area in Oakhill Cemetery.

A columbarium is a freestanding, above-ground structure with recesses in the walls (to house urns) for the perpetual care of cremated remains. These recesses (compartments) in the walls are referred to as "niches". Oakhill's Columbarium  niche size is 12"x 12" x 12" , while Mount Hope's niche size is 12" x 12" x 15" and each niche can accommodate two appropriately sized urns. 

This freestanding columbarium is faced with granite and adorned with individual inscribed bronze plaques, memorializing your loved one(s).
