This is a common requirement by cemeteries to protect the casket and ensure proper grounds maintenance. Today, a lot of families choose to safeguard their loved one’s remains by selecting a burial vault.
A memorial marker stands the test of time and serves as a physical reminder of a life celebrated and remembered. It provides a location for friends and family to visit and pay respects for years to come.
To accommodate the growing number of families who opt for cremation, our urn collection includes biodegradable urns for scattering as well as traditional urns made of marble, wood, bronze, or ceramic. Styles range from understated and classic to ornate and decorative.
Similar to a burial vault, if you plan to bury the urn, many cemeteries require a vault in order to protect the urn and the surrounding earth.
For those who choose cremation with a traditional funeral service, we offer cremation caskets built specifically for cremation.
We work with local florists to offer a beautiful selection of flowers for the funeral, visitation, memorial or graveside service. Flowers can be self standing or arranged specifically for a casket or urn. Select flowers for a current service.
Cremation containers can be either made of wood or cardboard. They tend to have the appearance of traditional burial caskets.
An economical choice for families, cloth covered caskets are modestly priced as a result of the construction methods and materials used in their manufacturing process.
Builders do not have to concern themselves with precise joinery or solid wood products because the exterior is wrapped in a fabric cloth covering.The choice of modest quality materials is further used in interior fabric, bedding and pillow treatments in an effort to further reduce the cost.
Hand crafted like fine furniture, each wooden casket has it's own unique graining pattern. The natural warmth and beauty of wood is available in a variety of types and species. The interior material of a wood casket is typically either velvet or crepe.
The classification "hardwood" simply means that the wood comes from a leaf-bearing tree. "Softwood" comes from the needle or cone-bearing trees. Therefore, designation as a hardwood is not determined solely by the consistency or surface hardness of the wood itself, but the species of the tree from which it came. Cost can vary depending on whether the sides of the casket are constructed from solid wood or a veneering process has been utilized.
The majority of metal caskets available on the market today are known as "protective" caskets. This terminology reflects that they are manufactured with a one-piece rubber gasket that runs around the inner lid of the casket. You will find this on all of our metal caskets with the exception of the Baron.
Once closed, a locking mechanism draws the lids onto the base and the gasket forms a seal. This protective seal protects the deceased from the entrance of air and other gravesite elements.
Many higher quality metal caskets utilize a sophisticated magnesium rust inhibitor process. Metal caskets are commonly manufactured in 20, 18 and 16 gauge metals. Interiors are tastefully coordinated in a variety of materials form crepe to velvet allowing for a range of pricing to meet a wide variety of budget concerns.
