Outer Burial Containers
Vaults and Grave Liners are usually required by the cemetery so that the gravesite will not collapse and that it will hold up to any heavy equipment operating above the grave. Either a burial Vault or a Grave Liner will satisfy these requirements.
Grave Liners are a concrete base form that the casket goes inside of and have a two piece or one piece top cover that houses the casket in the earth and prevents the collapse of the grave over time. Grave Liners DO NOT have liners or seals that prevent the entrance of water or other elements into the container. Grave liners can weigh from 600 to 1500 pounds.
Vaults are similar in form however they are constructed of heavier concrete, incorporate liners and seals that are constructed to prevent the entrance of water and other elements from entering the container, and have one piece covers. The vault liners are made from natural enduring metals including Bronze, Copper, and Stainless Steel and man made materials such as 'Trilon' and 'Marbelon'. Vaults can weigh from 1800 to 3000 pounds.
Cremation Urns are used to house the cremated remains after the cremation process. Urns are used for presentation of the cremains at a Wake, Memorial Service, Burial Service, family home, or to hold the cremains until scattering takes place.
Like Caskets and Outer Burial Containers, Urns are constructed of many different materials and in many different styles and designs.
Keepsakes for cremains are available as well that allows individuals to keep a small portion of the cremains as a memento. These Keepsakes include personalized jewelry, pendants, or smaller version of an urn.
