At the beginning of the 21st century, a significant portion of the Quebec and Canadian population resort to cremation for economic, ecological or family reasons.
The recrudescence of cremation in Quebec has led us to develop specific monuments called columbarium. These monuments generally contain several niches, which each one is available to a family. Usually, up to four funeral urns can be brought into the same niche.
Today, in Quebec, a large part of the urns are poorly stored to respect their sentimental and symbolic value. In fact, many people do not even know about the existence of columbariums. At Monuments Gagnon, we consider it our duty to inform our clients of the existence of such monuments and to offer this durable, attractive, affordable and safe product.
Over the years, we have developed the expertise needed to produce high-quality columbariums. We produce them in the factory according to rigorous standards before transporting them to the cemetery and installing them piece by piece at the chosen location. We have the necessary equipment to allow the customer to choose and install a columbarium in the cemeteries, which remain the traditional places in which we know that your loved ones can rest in peace.
The traditional way of building a columbarium is to make the assembly using granite divisions and a hyper-powerful epoxy glue.
At Monuments Gagnon, we go even further by offering you this opportunity, as well as choosing a columbarium aluminum structure which, although a little more expensive, is more durable because no glue is used in the assembly process. This avoids the risk of cracking and breaking joints over the years.
We are proud to be among the only ones in Quebec to offer you this technology while preserving our recognized expertise in traditional techniques. What you need to remember when it comes to our company is that we will always be ready to follow and support you with your projects.
The columbarium is the privileged place of family urns which are an inexhaustible source of comfort for those who remain.
We made and installed several colombariums for different parishes. The establishment of a columbarium is an added value for your parish.
