Burial Vaults & Outer Burial Containers

A burial vault is an outer receptacle that houses the casket. It protects the casket from the weight of the earth and heavy maintenance equipment that will pass over the grave. It also helps resist water and preserves the beauty of the cemetery or memorial park by preventing the ground from settling.

Minimum Outer Burial Container Burial Vault

The Outer Burial Container often called a concrete box meets the minimum requirement of all cemeteries.  A rigid box made of concrete, this burial vault does not have any sealing qualities, special linings or paint finishes.  The two large diameter holes in the bottom allow for the drainage of ground water from in and around the casket.



Urn Vaults for burial of ashes

If you plan on ground burial for the urn, most cemeteries require it be placed in an urn vault. Lined urn vaults give urns varying levels of protection from subsoil elements and the weight of the earth and cemetery maintenance equipment.

A lined urn vault is made of high-strength concrete and reinforced with durable plastic or a combination of durable plastic and metal (bronze, copper, or stainless steel).

Lined urn vaults offer superior protection and lasting peace of mind.   Let will help you select a lined urn vault that suits your style and budget.
