Cemetery Burial Vaults to Protect and Preserve

What is a Casket Vault?

A burial (or casket) vault is a concrete outer enclosure that houses the casket. The vault is placed into the cemetery space as a protective lining for the casket, which is lowered into the vault at the time of burial.

The vault protects the casket and keeps the land from shifting and sinking, ensuring that your cemetery space remains level and firm and maintains its beauty. This also creates a secure space for your loved ones to stand on. There are several different types of burial vaults that you can learn about in your free planning guide.

An Investment 

The average cost of a burial vault is $1,247. However, this is just a national average, and the actual cost of the casket vault can vary from this average, depending for example on the state or cemetery of the burial. Additionally, some cemeteries have different rules regarding the burial vault that may affect cost.

We recommend contacting a cemetery in your area to find out more about specific burial vault costs for you.
