The Brookside Administration Office has a large display of affordable, high quality, commemorative urns ranging in material from stone, marble and granite, to biodegradable options, for use in any of our cemeteries. Offered in many shapes and styles, urns symbolize beauty and eternity and create a permanent memorial to those who have passed. Our caring and compassionate Customer Service Advisors will be happy to provide assistance with selecting an urn.

Please Note: glass, ceramic or pottery urns (i.e. breakable items) are not accepted, and wood urns are not recommended for use in outdoor columbaria.

If you want to provide additional protection for your urn or include personal memorabilia, you may be interested in using a cremation vault. A cremation vault is a reinforced outer structure that protects everything placed inside against moisture and the weight of the earth. You could include flowers, a favourite book or toy, or other personal items.

Vaults combine innovative technology and meticulous attention to detail to offer superior strength and protection.

Please contact our Customer Service Advisors for more information.
