The Oliver Cemetery on Rockcliffe Road now includes a columbarium, installed by crews from the Town of Oliver on Tuesday.

The granite structure, supplied by Nelson Granite, has 60 niches to hold urns that will be available for purchase, said Shawn Goodsell, Director of Operations.

A cement base was constructed earlier this month and paving stones will be installed as well.

More columbarium pieces will be added in the future as needed, Goodsell said.

Prices for niches have not yet been set.
