Mount Pleasant Indoor Columbarium
Cathedral of Memories
There are two beautiful buildings in City Cemeteries that house indoor niches: The Cathedral of Memories, located at Edmonton Cemetery, and the Indoor Niche Building at Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
Indoor niche packages include:
- Memorialization (appropriate for niche style)
- Anniversary opening for cleaning/decorating. Anniversary opening cannot be redeemed for cash or other services.
- Access key or card for building access.
The Mount Pleasant Indoor Columbarium
This is a two-storey niche building with space available on both levels. The first floor was constructed in 2005, with a combination of glass and marble-fronted niches. The second floor was recently completed in 2020, and showcases hundreds of available niches taking advantage of the vaulted ceilings and natural light coming in through windows and skylights to make each individually-lit glass-fronted niche a stunning memorial.
The interior is warm and inviting, no matter the season, and is complete with a fireplace and comfortable seating that provide a tranquil place to visit departed loved ones. This is a beautiful final resting place for cremated remains.
Please inquire to arrange an appointment to view available niches.
The Cathedral of Memories
The Mausoleum is a handsome stone structure built in a classic greek doric architectural style, and is located in the north-central area of the Edmonton Cemetery. It adds stately appearance to the Cemetery, and has allowed for a creative circular arrangement of plots directly in front of its doors. Inside, directly in the centre of the upper floor, there is a simple chapel where committal services can take place. The interior also features cathedral stained-glass windows. The Mausoleum has appropriately been called a “Cathedral of Memorials”, for its polished marble and graceful design as it creates an atmosphere of grandeur and peace.
The Cathedral of Memories, which houses both the niches and crypts, is highly popular and availability is limited. Although most of the niches and crypts have been sold, they are instances when a niche or crypt is exchanged for a different burial option, making them available periodically.
Please inquire regarding availability.
