Outer Burial Containers or Vaults

What is an Outer Burial Container?

  • If you choose an in ground burial, it is necessary to purchase either an outer burial container or a vault. The difference between the two depends on the amount of weight that a particular container can withstand. Vaults are able to displace more weight than an outer burial container, in most cases.
  • A vault is also more likely to have advanced enhancements that make an attempt to keep water and other debris from entering and damaging the casket. The vault’s manufacturer determines what type of guarantees are provided for each outer burial container or vault.
