What Are Urn Vaults?

Cremation Oakland Today, many people opt for cremation when organizing funeral services for a deceased loved one or pre-planning their own funeral. If you’re interested in cremation, then you should know that in-ground burial is still an option following the cremation process. However, if you choose to bury the cremated remains in a cemetery, then you will probably be required to use an urn vault.

An urn vault is a container designed to hold a funeral urn. The urn is placed securely inside the vault, and the vault is then buried in the ground. Urn vaults come in a broad range of styles and levels of quality, much like traditional caskets. Also, many urn vaults can be personalized, if desired.
