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 single hexagon shaped, 72 niche columbarium in the Taber Memorial Garden cemetery to provide another option for families wishing to memorialize their loved one.
In the spring of 2019 we identified the need for additional niche space and in August of that year, Taber Town Council approved Southland's application to supply and install two 56 niche columbariums at the same site as our existing columbarium. In spite of the unforseen delays resulting from supply shortages during the pandemic, the new units were installed in October 2021.
Inquiries about purchasing space in these columbariums may be made through Southland Funeral Chapel by phone (403) 223-8778.
