Selecting a Casket
Whether you are preplanning for yourself or choosing for a loved one, casket selection is a very personal decision and an expression of your feelings. You may select the beauty of wood or the brilliance of fine metal. You may prefer tailored simplicity or a more elaborate design. A casket selection which reflects the personality and taste of your loved one can be your final tribute to their life.
A wide variety of caskets, in many price ranges, are available. You can rely upon your funeral director as an invaluable source to provide you with all the information you need to make a selection.

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.
