Outer Burial Containers


Outer Burial Containers, sometimes referred to as vaults, are required by most cemeteries in the region. Their function is to support the weight of the earth to help prevent sunken graves. Years ago these concrete containers were not used or required. If you are in older sections of cemeteries, generally you will notice that the ground is very unlevel. This is because what has been buried has deteriorated such that the ground has caved in.

The outer container may also function as a protector and keep elements at bay according to manufacturing specifications.

There are three levels available in the outer burial containers: Basic, Standard and Premium Protection. You will find different containers in each level and can be viewed below.
