Do I Have To Use A Burial Vault For Burial?
Numerous bereaved people choose to bury their dear one's ashes in graves. However, as we have seen at Tindall Funeral Home, many individuals have no idea that they'll need to buy a burial vault.
Burial vaults are exterior containers that contain a casket in which the deceased person is buried. Before depositing the casket or coffin, the grave is encased in a burial vault, keeping the ground above from settling. Cemeteries place a premium on grave liners and burial vaults to reduce the level of upkeep required to maintain the ground level.
Why Are Burial Vaults Required?
The vault protects the casket from the impact of large cemetery maintenance equipment and the soil's weight. Additionally, it prevents the earth from sinking, which improves water resistance while maintaining the cemetery grounds' appearance.
Vaults safeguard the ground further because when caskets and urns gradually decay and settle, the earth underneath them sinks and dips. Cemeteries may need burial vaults for urns and caskets to maintain their grounds' safety and attractiveness and safeguard their maintenance equipment.
Although cremation urns settle far less than caskets on the earth, most cemeteries also require urns to be buried under burial vaults. These vaults are constructed of durable, non-biodegradable materials such as plastic, cement, or metal. You can also opt for a solid metal burial vault, and the cost will depend on the product quality. Depending on your requirements and budget, you may choose from basic or more elegant vaults.
Most cemeteries need families to purchase vaults when burying family members; however, it's best to call ahead and get the information you need. You will find a suitable vault as there are many different varieties available. For advice or information on our cremation pre-planning services, contact Tindall Funeral Home at (315) 468-5521.
