Outer Burial Containers or Burial Vaults in Chicago, IL Metro/Northwest, IN

Graveliners or Outer Burial Containers/Burial Vaults are Required in Chicago Area Cemeteries

Burial Vaults (also known by Outer Burial Containers) are not required by Federal, State or Local Governments, but are required at all local cemeteries. Vaults come in a variety of styles. The least expensive is known as a Graveliner which meet some cemetery requirements, while others require vaults that are domed top and seal. We can check with each individual cemetery in what is permitted. Now, in regards to what constitutes a burial vault, it is a lined and sealed receptacle that protects the casket from the weight of the earth and cemetery equipment that passes over the gravesite.

The vault also resists water and preserves the beauty of the cemetery by preventing the ground from sinking. That being said, for example, Catholic Diocese of Chicago and some other area cemeteries require that you purchase Graveliner from them exclusively. However, they do not prevent your family from purchasing a burial vault from another vendor such as us.
