Caskets are available in a variety of materials, styles, colors and price ranges. The three materials primarily used in casket construction are steel, wood and semi-precious metals. Generally, the casket is selected on its aesthetic appeal as a symbol of respect.
OUTER CONTAINERS (VAULTS)
The two most common protective outer containers are the Metal Grave Vault and the Concrete Burial Vault. Both are designed, and warranted, to protect the casket from the weight of the earth and the water in the ground. Many cemeteries today require the use of some type of outer burial receptacle. However, less expensive grave liners will meet this purpose, though they are not warranted to protect against moisture.
There is no "standard" cremation arrangement. As families go through the arrangement process, we urge them to make service and memorialization choices that provide comfort and meaning that feel right for them. This includes the selection of a cremation container. Consideration should be given to the final venue of the "cremains." Some Urns are specifically designed for scattering, others are made for burial, and many are crafted to serve as keepsakes.
