DO I NEED A BURIAL VAULT?
Yes. The easy answer is yes. Burial vaults are not required by Federal, State or Local Government, but all local cemeteries require them. Burial Vaults, also known as Outer Burial Containers, help protect the casket from the weight of the earth around it, as well as cemetery equipment that passes over the graves. Just like caskets, vaults are available in many styles, from a basic concrete vault to a fancier sealed vault. All vaults must meet the cemetery requirements. We can check with the cemeteries to see what is permitted.
