The Lowell Cemetery is pleased to announce the construction of the O.M. Whipple Columbarium and Garden of Remembrance. The project was named for Oliver M. Whipple, an industrialist, who donated the land on which the cemetery is located.

Located on a beautifully landscaped hill with expansive views of historic Lowell Cemetery, the architecturally distinctive project blends into the existing landscape of the cemetery and its significant heritage.

The unique design features three curved walls with niches for urns containing cremated remains, a pavilion under which people can gather, natural walkways and plantings and benches for contemplation.

- Choose from three wall locations
- Single/double or family niches
- Variable pricing options
- In-ground cremation spaces available

Pre-completion pricing available until November 1.

For pricing information, to schedule a tour or to learn about the benefits of planning ahead please contact us at 978-454-5191
