Cremation Disposition Choices

Following the service and cremation, an appropriate final resting place at Dowling may be selected for your loved one. We offer several choices including placement in an indoor or outdoor niche, ground burial in an urn garden, or the placement of cremated remains in one of our beautiful scattering gardens.

Cremated remains may also be divided upon proper request from the family with portions being placed into “keepsake” urns and jewelry for family members to keep and treasure. The remaining portion can then be placed using any of the following methods:


What’s a Niche?

Indoor or outdoor walls constructed of various-sized compartments — known as “niches” — are uniquely designed to hold urns containing cremated remains. Besides coming in a variety of sizes, niches also have different “fronts,” which are usually made of glass or granite.

Along with an urn, a special family photo, personal memorabilia, keepsake item or seasonal decoration can be placed inside to further personalize the niche. Dowling alone offers Clark County residents a popular indoor, glass-front niche arrangement.

Dowling’s glass front indoor niches come in several sizes and styles to accommodate individuals, couples and families. Outdoor niches are available in both single and companion-size. Whether you prefer an indoor or outdoor niche, you will find that our prices are very reasonable.

The Benefits of Choosing a Niche at Dowling

Personal: The unique design of a niche invites solitary contemplation and becomes a peaceful gathering place for family and friends to fondly remember their loved one.

Convenient: Our indoor, glass-front niches offer comfortable, year-around visitation. Our Fireside Chapel is available for memorial services as well as “celebration of life” gatherings.

Cremation Choice #2: Ground Burial

Burial of cremated remains is available in one of our urn gardens or in a full-size burial space. Cremated remains may also be placed in a grave space already used for a casket interment.

Dowling offers a variety of granite and bronze memorial choices uniquely-designed to commemorate the lives of those who opt for cremation burial:


This distinctive cremation arrangement makes perfect sense to many people because it offers the simplicity of cremation as well as providing a permanent place for family and friends to visit and reminisce.

Cremation burial arrangements for individuals as well as other budget-friendly cremation burial packages are also available.
