The Columbarium is located at 7524 Stations Drive, on a gently sloping site behind the Roman Catholic Canadian Martyr's Church.
The site is owned by the Village of Radium Hot Springs and was subdivided from the Church property for the purpose of creating a non-denominational Municipal Columbarium.
Initially, one columbarium containing a total of 60 niches has been sited at the termination of the wheelchair accessible pathway, approximately 90m from the parking lot. Allowance has been made for a second and third Columbaria structure to be installed at a later date, when required for additional niche spaces.
The pathway, first Columbarium and Memorial Wall were constructed during the summer and fall of 2009. Each of the 60 niches is one cubic foot in size, with depth, width and height dimensions being approximately 12 inches each. The niches can be used for a single interment, or a companion (double) interment. The Memorial Wall, which is located on the east side of the Columbarium structure has 154 spaces for bronze plaques 5" x 3" in dimension.
Purchasing a Niche
Niche Faceplate Inscriptions
Some people choose not to inter their loved one's ashes in a Columbarium niche, but still want a memory place to visit and remember. A name plaque on the Memorial Wall can provide one with this opportunity. For this purpose, a Memorial Permit and bronze plaque can be purchased. All plaques are ordered through the Village of Radium Hot Springs. Additional details are available at the Village Office.
For assistance with any questions regarding the Columbarium or Memorial Wall, please contact the Village office at 250-347-6455, and Village staff will be pleased to help.
