If I have already interred ashes of a deceased person in a private niche, can I continue keeping the ashes in the niche?

Food and Environmental Hygiene Department

The ashes can continue to be kept in the columbarium only if the columbarium holds a licence.  Otherwise, the operator is required to return the ashes to the eligible claimants. Please refer to FEHD’s dedicated website for the list of licensed columbaria.
