When planning a funeral, one of the many decisions that must be made is where the final resting place will be. The final resting place will determine what selections will need to be made. These selections may include caskets, vaults or urns. We will educate you on all of your options and we will help you make appropriate selections that will be representative of your loved one.
Selecting a casket is a very personal decision. Caskets are made in a wide variety of styles and materials. Most caskets are made of wood or metal. Wooden caskets are often selected for their warmth and beauty. Metal caskets are often selected for their durability and unique finishes. The cost of the casket is primarily determined by the material the casket is made of.
Most cemeteries require that caskets be placed in an outer burial container capable of withstanding the weight and pressure of the earth above and surrounding the container. Vaults are constructed of high-quality structural concrete that is bonded with high-impact thermoformed plastics and may also include an interior liner made of stainless steel, copper or bronze.
