Burial Vaults

A burial vault is a large box to hold the buried casket and is intended to protect the casketed remains and ensure the ground and the landscaping surrounding the plot is unaffected by any settling.

Most cemeteries in our area require the purchase of a burial vault. It can be simple and plainly constructed of concrete or it can be decorative in styling. Browse our selection of affordable burial vaults or call us at to learn more.

Basic Vaults
We offer a selection of basic concrete vaults featuring a concrete base and a one-piece top lid. Although not a sealed protective unit, they do meet the minimal requirements at cemeteries where burial vaults are a bylaw requirement.
Standard Vaults
High-strength concrete, stainless steel, and high-impact ABS TrilonĀ® thermoplastic combine for durable inner protection in our middle of the line, double-reinforced products.
Premium Vaults
Copper vaults provide excellent durability with superior long-lasting protection against subsoil elements and the weight of heavy cemetery maintenance equipment.
