The burial is an emotional event which signifies the final phase of the recently departed. The burial may be in ground or above ground. When the burial is in the ground, many states require a vault to be used with the casket. The vault is used in part to protect the casket. When the burial is above ground, the location of the recently departed is typically called a mausoleum.
Which method should you choose and which costs more/less? If the departer left any wishes, the should be followed through. If the departer left no indictation of the method, the decision falls to those closest to the departed. Go with what feels right.
The cost of each depends on a few factors. If the burial is in ground, the location, vault and markets should all be consider. If the burial is above ground, the type of mausoleum is key factor. Many cemeteries offer a common mausoleum on their grounds. The use of a mausoleum eliminates the need for a vault and extravagant markers. You may find both methods to be comparable on costs in the end, but we feel a mausoleum might have a slight edge.
After family and friends pay their respects at the burial site, the casket remains untouched until all members have left the immediate area. Members of the cemetary will lower the casket into the ground and place if in-ground burial, or they will place the casket into the mausoleum if above ground.
Pay your respects and rest adsured your loved one is in a better place. This is a tough process for those close to the departed.
