A columbarium is a permanent granite structure, that has been designed for the secure placement of cremated remains above ground. Each niche (space) may accommodate up to two urns.
In 2007, after receiving feedback from the community, Southland Funeral Chapel installed a 72 niche columbarium in the Taber Memorial Garden cemetery to provide another option for families wishing to memorialize their loved one.
Presently, this columbarium is almost at capacity. In August of 2019, Taber Town Council approved Southland's application to supply and install two 56 niche columbariums on town property at the same site as our existing columbarium. Given that these columbariums will take approximately ninety days to build, we are hoping to have them installed in the spring of 2020.
