A columbarium is a small, usually free-standing structure within a cemetery, designed for the permanent entombment of cremated remains. A columbarium may also be built into a mausoleum. The outer walls of a columbarium contain small compartments - called niches - into which urns holding cremated remains are placed. The niches are then sealed. The Catholic cemeteries that have outdoor columbariums are Resurrection, Holy Sepulchre and Our Lady of the Angels in Hamilton, Holy Cross in Brantford, and Marymount in Guelph. Our mausolea also include columbaria, which are indoor wall niches into which an urn with cremated remains is placed.
