The Town of Wake Forest is now selling columbarium niches for $400 each. Measuring 6.75 inches by 6.75 inches and 14.75 inches deep, each niche will hold two polished, sheet bronze urns which are included in the purchase price.
The town has also introduced a new memorial wall to honor friends and family members who may be interred elsewhere. The two-sided memorial wall features six horizontal rows and 10 vertical columns of memorial facing stone on each side.
