What is a burial vault

Vaults are concrete containers at a gravesite 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.
