If you plan on ground burial for the urn, most cemeteries require that it be placed into an urn vault. A cremation urn vault is a lined and sealed outer receptacle that houses the cremation urn, protecting it from the weight of the earth and cemetery maintenance equipment that will pass over it. Lined urn vaults provide protection from subsoil elements while preventing the ground from settling, thus maintaining the beauty of the grounds.
Wilbert lined urn vaults are made of high-strength concrete and reinforced with various lining materials including bronze, copper, stainless steel, and high-impact plastics. Your funeral professional can help you select a Wilbert urn vault that suits your style and budget.
Wilbert offers three categories of cremation urn vaults, with differences in the level of protection, warrantees, beauty, and personalization options.
