Hamburg United Methodist Church Columbarium




Hamburg United Methodist Church is pleased to offer members and their immediate family a beautiful Columbarium, a final resting place in a fittingly designed, attractive setting within the church. The Columbarium is located in the narthex at the Union Street entrance, adjacent to the back of the sanctuary.

From earliest times, people have been concerned about their final earthly resting place, especially to be near the gathering place of their families, and even friends, so each may be held in lasting, loving remembrance. The Hamburg UMC Columbarium now offers this option, preserving the cremated earthly remains in niches enclosed with a protective front of bronze. A brass identification plate for name and dates of birth and death is included.

A limited number of niches, at a cost of $1,000 each, are now available. Be sure to reserve your niche or niches now individually, or for a family group.  A Columbarium Application and Information document is available here.

In addition, a bronze Memorial Plaque is mounted in the Columbarium where names of loved ones who have been laid to rest elsewhere may be engraved and remembered perpetually. Inclusion on the plaque is available at $200 per plate. A Memorial Plaque Application is available here.  

When you have completed the desired application, please send it to: Hamburg United Methodist Church, Attn.: Columbarium Committee, 116 Union St., Hamburg , NY 14075.

If you have any questions, or you would like to discuss a purchase, please call the church office at (716) 649-8080 and ask to get in touch with a member of the Columbarium Committee. A committee member will be happy to meet with you personally.
