This is a common requirement by cemeteries to protect the casket and ensure proper grounds maintenance. Today, a lot of families choose to safeguard their loved one’s remains by selecting a burial vault.
A memorial marker stands the test of time and serves as a physical reminder of a life celebrated and remembered. It provides a location for friends and family to visit and pay respects for years to come.
To accommodate the growing number of families who opt for cremation, our urn collection includes biodegradable urns for scattering as well as traditional urns made of marble, wood, bronze, or ceramic. Styles range from understated and classic to ornate and decorative.
Similar to a burial vault, if you plan to bury the urn many cemeteries require a vault in order to protect the urn and the surrounding earth.
