Saint Anthony Catholic Cemetery
On Wednesday, March 27, 2019, the columbarium was delivered and set on our cement pad in the center of our walkway. The picture show below was taken on May 24, 2019 after a temporary cross in the center of the cemetery was replaced by a larger cross from the original St. Anthony church in Camdenton. This cross was used for many years in front of our church during Lent.
One side of the columbarium is wider than the other side. The view in the above picture shows one of the wide sides containing twenty four (24) double niches each for a total of forty eight (48) niches. A double niche can only contain two urns. The opposite side, along the road is identical.
The two narrower adjacent sides contain fourteen (14) single niches each for a total of twenty eight (28) niches. A single niche can contain only one urn. Therefore, a single columbarium can hold a total of one hundred and twenty four (124) urns or niches (spaces).
The following figures show the numbering sequence on all four sides. The numbers begin with number 1 in the upper left corner on the south side double niches and end at number 24 in the lower right. The next side will be single niches on the east side beginning with the next sequential number 25 in the upper left and ending with number 38 at the bottom right. The numbering sequence continues to the next adjacent side on the north following the same pattern and finally the west side.
Columbarium Niche Identification
In the above figure, the red colored markers indicate niches that have been reserved. The green colored ones are niches containing an inurnment of cremains.
The following pictures show the columbarium during delivery.
The picture on the left shows the view of the columbarium from the road looking east. From this angle, you can see the narrower side on the east.
Our Burial Plots
We have one-hundred full-sized burial plots and the thirty five smaller infant plots that are half the size. There are four rows of twenty-five plots each, resulting in the one-hundred plots. The 5 x 10 ft. plots are wider than most cemetery plots. The smaller 5 x 5 ft. infant plots are between the regular plots and the entrance road. The 8 ft. wide space between the two double rows is a service alley.
The following figure shows the one hundred numbered burial plots and the smaller thirty-five numbered infant plots. The red markers are reserved plots and the green marker is one containing a burial.
