Traditionally, this service includes a family or public viewing of the deceased. Following this will be a service, typically in the church.
This would be followed by the burial of the casketed remains. Caskets selected may cost from several hundred dollars to several thousands of dollars, depending on the material the casket is constructed of. Many cemeteries require that a minimum grave liner be used to encase the casket when earth buried. These minimum liners are constructed of concrete and are designed to hold the weight of the earth, maintaining the cemetery property. A sealed vault may also be used. The vaults are also constructed of concrete and are designed to not only protect the gravesite, but are manufactured with inner liners that not only restrict the entrance of graveside elements (water and earth) but increase the strength of the vault.
