Niche Walls


Currently in the Snowy Monaro Regional Council have  columabriums available for the interment of ashes at a number of cemeteries throughout the region.

These walls are situated in the Adaminaby, Bombala, Cooma, Delegate and Gegedzerick
(near Berridale) and Jindabyne Cemeteries.  

Like plots, niches can be reserved for later use or purchased at time of need.

Before you may inter ashes, an application for a Permit to Inter Ashes (Order of Interment) and Application to Erect a Monument must be submitted to Council.

The procedure for Interment in Niche Wall is as follows:
  • The authorised family representative  will make application to Council for the interment of ashes in the niche wall - if the plot has not previously been purchased the appropriate fee will be required.
  • An application for Erection of a Monument must also be completed to ensure that the plaque size and style is appropriate for the Niche Wall.
  • Upon approval from Council, the ashes may be interred. Depending on the site this may be undertaken by the Cemetery Supervisor, Monumental Mason or Council staff only.
  • Arrangements in relation to placement and plaque are specific to cemeteries - please contact the Council office for further information.
  • Monuments may only be erected on application and approval from Council. 
  • For Plaque specifications please see our Memorials and Monuments.
