  Like a frame for a painting, a niche enhances the beauty of the urn it displays. In cemeteries, niche units are often placed in entrance areas, prominent hallways and alcoves. Like urns, niches come in many styles. Some feature clear or beveled-glass fronts.

An increasing number of cemeteries are adding custom cast bronze niche fronts designed to illustrate nature scenes or biblical images. They are being integrated on walls among classic marble crypts or installed as exclusive sections of the mausoleums.

If you select to have your urn placed in a niche with a cast bronze or marble front, you may also want to select bronze letters or a bronze niche plate as a lasting tribute.

Usually, the styles of letters or niche plates used are selected by the cemetery to reflect the atmosphere of a mausoleum. Matthews’ bronze letters and niche plates are available in traditional and contemporary styles to provide memorialization on companion and individual niches. A variety of niche plate designs, from simple bevel edge plates to ornate styles trimmed in floral patterns, are available in bronze.
