…Funeral space is a global space which contains all the funeral elements, while columbarium is only an element of this global space.

Generally, a Funeral space is composed of 3 major elements.

1 / Remembrance Garden

Remembrance Garden is designed to receive former ashes, and to disappeared its. It utilization is free. It purpose is both disappeared ashes and keep the memories of formers. A remembrance Garden is made up of a well covered with a grating which is concealed by pebbles or looses stones. Ashes are dispersed on pebbles and then penetrate in the openings. This garden could be designed like linear shape or curve shape like a "pebbles river" with a grating under the pebbles or not. This solution required obviously a larger superficies than the "well solution".

  • We advice you to install next to the remembrance garden a "stele" or "memory monument" where formers epitaph would be inscribed.
  • You would have to forecast a ceremony table which will enable you to lay down the funeral urn during the last ceremony just before ashes was dispersed.
