Selecting a Burial Vault

Although not required by law, most people prefer a burial vault.  This is an outer receptacle with a warranted seal and liner for underground interment in cemeteries.

Outer burial containers support the weight of the earth and heavy equipment that may pass over the grave.  As this helps preserve the beauty of the property and reduces maintenance costs, they may be required by your cemetery or memorial park.

Usually the vault is set at the grave prior to interment.  A brief service may be held at the grave when the casket is interred.  After the service, the cover will be placed over the base and the grave will be filled, compacted and then seeded or sodded.
