Vault Price List

Prices are effective as of May 1st, 2017and are subject to change without notice

In most areas of the country, state or local law does not require that you buy a container to surround the casket in the grave. However, many cemeteries require that you have such a container so that the ground will not sink in.  Either a grave liner or a burial vault will satisfy these requirements.  Certain cemeteries may also require an additional fee for the grave setup (tent, grass, chairs, and lowering device), holiday or weekend fees, fees for outer burial containers not purchased through them, and for opening and closing the grave.
