Lawn Crypt – The Two-Person Above Ground Option That Remains Dry

What is a Lawn Crypt Burial?

A lawn crypt is an above ground burial option. Lawn crypts allow two people to be memorialized together (though they are also available for one person). The space always remains clean and dry. Lawn crypts also feature a water drainage system directly below the area to provide added protection from weather.

A lawn crypt burial consists of four different components:

1 Gravesite

Gravesite

The space or plot, sometimes referred to as a grave or funeral plot, is the spot where a body is laid to rest in the ground. Lush green sod is placed over the space to provide an area for loved ones to stand, visit, and remember. Burial plots provide a way to display a marker or monument and can be adorned year-round with beautiful gravesite floral tributes.


2 Casket

Casket

A funeral casket (sometimes referred to as a funeral coffin) is the decorative box used to display and bury a deceased loved one. After a service, it is lowered into the vault.

3 Memorial

Memorial

a tribute installed at the gravesite to honor and celebrate a life worth remembering. Flat bronze markers are installed at memorial parks and upright concrete monuments are installed at cemeteries.

4 Vault

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. There are several different types of burial vaults that you can learn about in your free planning guide.
