The Burial Vault Process

 

by Wilbert Vault

A well-designed vault plays an important role at the graveside, as the final resting place for the casket. The strength and beauty of the vault adds an extra sense of permanence and dignity to the graveside ceremony.

  1. After the grave is opened, the vault will be delivered and installed in the grave.
  2. The casket is placed over the vault and the grave is ready for family and friends to gather for the final graveside ceremony.
  3. After the graveside ceremony, the funeral professional observes final preparations for interment such as lowering of the casket into the vault and closing of the vault.
  4. Once the vault has been closed, the grave is ready to be filled.
