Burial Vaults

A burial vault is a protective outer container that the casketed remains are placed in at the grave and sealed closed. The protect the casketed remains, keep the grave intact, and add beauty to the funeral committal setting.

In most areas of the country, state or local law does not require that you buy a container to surround the casket in the grave. However, many cemeteries require that you have such a container so that the grave will not sink in. Either a grave liner or burial vault will satisfy these requirements. For more information, watch this video.
