Half of the funerals that are conducted at the cemetery are for cremated remains. A niche space is a small rectangular slot that can hold approximately 2-3 urns. The Niche Wall runs along the eastern border of the cemetery and is approximately half a mile in length. The Columbarium Courts are structures that have niches built into them. There are nine courts in total. Court nine is the newest and largest with 20,000 niche spaces.
