Columbarium Survey

The Town of Balgonie is considering implementing a Columbarium at the Balgonie Cemetery.

A Columbarium is a structure with built-in niche spaces that store cremation urns, with the potential for each niche to hold up to two (2) urns. Each niche will have a plaque that serves as an identifying marker with your loved one’s name(s), date of birth and date of death. They offer families and friends a place to remember and visit loved ones who have passed away.

On average, niche’s are priced anywhere between $1,500-$2,500 in surrounding communities, and can hold up to 2 urns per niche.

The Town of Balgonie is collecting responses with regard to implementing a Columbarium at the Balgonie Cemetery.

Pay with Plastiq

Credit cards are now accepted. All fees are paid by the cardholder. Payments may take 3-5 business days to process. The Town of Balgonie is avoiding passing on the cost of card payments to all residents, so those wishing to pay by credit card or debit card will be charged a fee. This fee is charged by Plastiq, not the Town of Balgonie. (2.9% for credit cards, 1% for debit cards).
