Columbarium expansion completed at Yellowstone National Cemetery

A construction project to add columbarium niche spaces at Yellowstone National Cemetery, which began in June, is now complete. The new columbarium niches will extend cremation niche burial availability until 2023. The National Cemetery Administration developed a 320-niche, double-sided columbarium wall. It has 160 niches each side. The wall is five rows high, with dark granite niche covers, ashlar stone veneer walls, and limestone caps. Inurnments will be marked with bronze markers. Columbarium 5 is located on the opposite end of the columbarium plaza from existing Columbarium 1.
In addition to the new columbarium, a large section of YNC will now house pre-placed concrete crypts as another option for casket interments. Other areas of renovation of the cemetery include updates to the existing restrooms and a new entrance sign. YNC currently offers three interment options: casket burial, in-ground cremations and columbarium niches for cremations. The facility is open for visitation from dawn to dusk and the cemetery continues to conduct committal services while under construction.
