Cremation Vaults


Many people decide to have the cremated remains of their deceased family member buried. In most cases, this is on a family cemetery lot where other interments may be made in the future. Any time an interment is made, it is important to protect the deceased's physical remains.

A cremation vault protects the urn, which holds the cremated remains, from the natural elements. It also protects the urn from disruption if an adjacent grave is opened at a later date, or the grave is re-opened again by mistake. The power equipment that is used in most cemeteries to dig a grave could easily destroy an urn that is not protected by a burial vault thereby spilling the cremated remains into the surrounding soil.

Designed with the same quality manufacturing construction as burial vaults, these smaller vaults incorporate all of the same protective principals as full size casket vaults.

From simple concrete cores to a combination of concrete core with ABS plastic, copper and bronze liners, these vaults are among the finest quality available on the market.

Why use a vault for cremation? Many people decide to have the cremated remains of their deceased family member buried. In most cases, this is on a family cemetery lot where other interments may be made in the future. Any time an interment is made, it is important to protect the deceased's physical remains. Vaults protect the urn, which holds the cremated remains, from the natural elements. It also protects the urn from disruption if an adjacent grave is opened at a later date, or the grave is re-opened again by mistake. The power equipment that is used in most cemeteries to dig a grave could easily destroy an urn that is not protected by a burial vault thereby spilling the cremated remains into the surrounding soil.

A Cremation Vault also aids the family in the event they decide to disinter the deceased and move them to a different cemetery or another lot within the same cemetery. As unusual as this may seem, it does happen quite often in today's transient society.

Cremation Vaults come in varying sizes that are tailored to accommodate cremation urns. They are usually cube shaped and are no larger than 18 to 20 inches tall. They can be constructed of varied materials such as metal, polystyrene or plastic, cultured marble, or reinforced concrete. Concrete vaults are often lined with materials such as stainless steel, copper, bronze or polystyrene to provide a moisture barrier. The vaults are sealed with an adhesive or sealant compound to provide a protective unit.
