Modern Cemetery / Vaults
Vault burial is defined as the placement of human remains in a protective structure of brick, stone or concrete, within a grave plot, which affords protection of the coffin or casket from the strenuous physical forces associated with burial in the earth, from the entry of water and soil, and prevents movement and disturbance of the ground after the burial has taken place.
Vault burial is especially popular amongst the Italian and Southern European communities that we serve in our local area. The practice of burial in a protective vault, as opposed to burial directly into the soil, is reminiscent of the methods used in Southern Europe, in which the coffin is buried in a mausoleum-type structure above ground.
