What is a burial vault

burial vault

Vaults are concrete containers at a grave site that serve as protective enclosure for a casket. When you've seen a casket get lowered into a burial space, it's actually being lowered into the vault. Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia require the purchase of casket vaults.

Once you purchase a vault, you have the option of installing it right away before time of need or having it stored by the cemetery. The vault can be stored at the cemetery, a warehouse or another location selected by the seller.

In addition, the amount charged to install will not differ whether you have the vault installed at time of purchase or stored for later. Full details about installation or storage of vaults prior to need is available at the cemetery and will be supplied to you at time of purchase.
