At Burch-Messier Funeral & Cremation Service, we are proud to offer Outer Burial Containers from America’s leading manufacturer of Burial Vaults and Concrete Grave Liners – Wilbert. Available nationwide, our Outer Burial Containers are locally serviced by Richards-Wilberts, Inc. of Salem.
Collectively, both are considered Outer Burial Containers. A burial or urn vault is a protective outer container
for the casket or urn. It provides the casket or urn with superior, long-lasting protection against subsoil elements
and the weight of heavy cemetery maintenance equipment. A grave liner has less ornamentation and
is solely used to protect the casket from the weight of heavy cemetery maintenance equipment. In cemeteries
that require an Outer Burial Container, a Concrete Grave Liner satisfies this requirement.
