MITCHELL FAMILY FUNERAL HOME
OUTER BURIAL CONTAINER PRICE LIST

This Outer Burial Container Price List is effective as of January 1, 2021, but is subject to change without notice.

 

The Mitchell Family Funeral Home only uses concrete reinforced burial vaults for many reasons. Please ask your funeral director for comparisons between these products or other minimum plastic outer burial containers available. All outer burial containers will incur a $450 set fee from the vault company ($525 on Saturday, additional on holidays and Sundays).

 

Burial vaults or grave liners, known formally as outer burial containers, are commonly used in "traditional," full-service funerals. The vault or liner is placed at the site before burial, and the casket is lowered into it at burial.

The purpose is to prevent the ground from caving in as the casket deteriorates over time. A grave liner is made of reinforced concrete and will satisfy any cemetery requirement. Grave liners cover all sides of the casket and are not lined, sealed or warranted. A burial vault is more substantial and durable than a grave liner and are lined, sealed and warranted.

 State laws do not require a vault or liner. However, keep in mind that many cemeteries require some type of outer burial container to prevent the grave from sinking in the future.

Additional Considerations…

The following price ranges are for your information only. These charges are not the charges of the funeral home, but those of the third parties, which are those involved with the funeral or memorial service, but not employed by the funeral home. These charges are separate from those of the funeral home, but in many instances, we accept these charges (not Rose Hill or Riverside) and place them on the Statement of Funeral Goods and Services.
