When you are planning a burial service, the two primary funeral products you will need to purchase are a casket and a burial vault.
The primary purpose of the casket is to provide a dignified way to store and move the body prior to cremation or burial. If you are planning to hold a visitation or burial service, a casket is a necessary product to purchase. In some cases, families may choose to purchase a metal free wooden casket for their loved one’s cremation service.
Burial vaults are a necessary funeral product and often required by cemeteries to bury remains. A burial vault is a sealed container typically constructed from concrete that is used to protect the casket and keep the cemetery safe. After the deceased is buried, the ground will be passed over by heavy machines and foot traffic. The burial vault prevents the ground from settling or caving in thus preserving the beauty of the cemetery and keeping visitors safe.
If you are planning a cremation service, the three funeral products most families purchase include an urn, urn vault, and cremation jewelry.
An urn is a container used to hold the ashes of a loved one after they have been cremated. Urns are available in a selection of different materials including glass, ceramic, wood, and metal. Specialty urns are also available for families that plan to scatter the ashes or hold a water burial.
An urn vault is used when the family would like the bury the urn and cremated remains. It serves the same purpose as a burial vault.
Cremation jewelry is used as a way to remember and memorialize a loved one. There are many different types of cremation jewelry available in a selection of styles and materials. Cremation jewelry allows you to keep a part of your loved one with you forever, whether it is a lock of hair, small portion of the cremated remains, a dried flower from the service, or the deceased’s finger print engraved on the jewelry.
