Cemetery and Vault General Information and Guidelines

A lot of people ask us questions about cemeteries and vaults. 

#1 question       Is it a state law that you have to use a vault for burial?

Answer.           No, the state nor local governments require the use of a vault for burial.  Vaults are only required by some cemeteries.  If you have a family cemetery or a church cemetery that does not require a vault, you can bury the casket directly in the ground without purchasing a vault.
