Arlington National Cemetery serves as the final resting place for more than 400,000 military veterans and their families. This historic cemetery combines the use of crypts and columbariums to lay to rest our nation’s veterans in a serene setting. The use of columbariums has vastly increased the cemetery’s capacity, allowing more military families to honor their loved ones and the sacrifices they made. At Columbarium Planners, we provide the same kind of environment for our clients to lay to rest and honor their loved ones as well.
Columbariums at Arlington
Arlington National Cemetery opened its first columbarium for cremated remains in April 1980. Since then, tens of thousands of veterans have been inurned at Arlington. The columbariums are beautifully constructed and landscaped. These spaces, much like the rest of the grounds, provide a serene and reflective environment for visitors to honor the fallen.
Benefits of Columbariums for Arlington
Many family members seek to bury their veterans at Arlington National Cemetery. Unfortunately, the cemetery has been running out of room for interments. As such, tens of millions of dollars have been spent to expand the cemetery. In addition to underground crypts, the cemetery has invested in the addition of nearly 16,000 niche sites. These sites greatly increase the cemetery’s capacity and will allow many more families to honor their veterans.
