Columbarium Wall

The Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery Columbarium Wall was dedicated on Memorial Day 2003. This impressive structure, constructed of concrete and covered completely in granite, contains 3861 niches that will hold over 9000 urns of cremated remains.  This burial option affords the community an alternative to traditional burial.  Niches are designed in three sizes comprised of the Single Niche, Companion Niche and the Family Niche.  This new addition to our community provides an attractive location where we can place our loved ones’ remains and return time and again to honor their lives.
