Including those made from bronze, copper, stainless steel – are known for their long lasting features and unique finishes. Bronze and copper are amongst the most durable and beautiful of metals and both are naturally non-rusting. Stainless steel and carbon steel caskets come in a variety of grades, gauges, styles and finishes. Most metal caskets are manufactured and tested to completely resist the entrance of air and water (gasketed).
Include a variety of species: mahogany, walnut, cherry, maple, oak, pecan, poplar and pine. These caskets are the choice of families who appreciate and cherish the qualities of natural wood. The warmth, beauty and personality it brings to fine furniture is ideally suited for construction of quality caskets.
Outer Burial Containers
An Outer Burial Container is a receptacle used to encase the casket and support the weight of the earth above. Outer burial containers are split into two groups:
The sole purpose of a grave liner is to support the weight of the earth, thus preventing the ground from sinking in. Our grave liners are made of concrete.
Vaults also support the weight of the earth, but in addition, seal the gravesite from the intrusion of outside substances like water and dirt. Our vaults are made of reinforced concrete and can be either lined or unlined.
Cremation Caskets are specifically constructed to be completely combustible. They are made from a variety of woods and wood products.
An Alternative Container is an alternative to a casket. For sanitary reasons and for easy placement of the deceased into the cremation chamber, our crematory has a minimum requirement that the body be cremated in a combustible, leak proof, rigid, covered container if a casket is not being used. We refer to this as an alternative container. Alternative containers may be made of fiberboard, particleboard or corrugated cardboard with a wood bottom.
Urns are quite simply containers in which cremated remains are placed. They come in a variety of shapes and are constructed of bronze, copper, marble, simulated marble, ceramic, wood or plastic. Today’s urns also can be personalized and engraved to meet any family’s needs.
