Abernethy Memorial United Methodist Church



The Columbarium Garden will be located on the courtyard side of the church sanctuary.


It will be constructed of brick and stone, accented by a lovely garden. It will be a place for permanent preservation of the ashes from cremation.

This columbarium will deliver a message of comfort in the knowledge that those that have touched our lives will remain in the company of friends and family.




To reserve a niche in the columbarium, interested individuals should complete an application. Once payment is received, you will receive a certificate of reservation for the individual whose name appears on the application.


Designation of the niche will take place at the time of purchase and can be individually selected, or assigned by the Columbarium Committee. The stone face plate with bronze frame will be large enough for full name, birthdate, and death date only of individual(s).


Information regarding individuals whose ashes are placed in the columbarium will be kept in the Memorial Records in the church office.




Applications for purchasing a columbarium niche can be obtained at the church office Monday through Thursday from 11:00 A.M. until 4:00 P.M.

Other issues, such as management, transfers, maintenance of grounds, etc., will be kept in memorial records.



$2,000.00 per single niche


Each niche will accommodate up to two urns.
