Frequently Asked Questions

What is a vault for and what does it cost?

A vault is not required by law. However, with a burial service, cemeteries normally require a burial receptacle for the casket to go into so that the grave will not sink. This receptacle can be a vault that seals to prevent the entrance of air or moisture or a grave liner that does not seal.

Vaults are constructed of concrete or galvanized steel. Concrete vaults may have bronze, copper, stainless steel, fiberglass or plastic liners.

• Price for nonsealing grave liners is $800
• Prices for sealing vaults range from $1,025 to $3,775
