Cremation Vaults

If you have chosen cremation, a casket is not required. However a cremation container (an urn) to hold the cremains is required. If you choose to have a viewing with the body present prior to cremation, you may rent or purchase a casket from Chapel Ridge. Contact us and we will assist you.

Vault Selections

Outer Concrete Burial Vaults

Outer burial vaults are used primarily for two specific reasons:

  1. To support the grave. If you have ever walked in a cemetery, you may have found the ground to be very uneven in many areas. The use of a vault eliminates the settling of the grave. Many cemeteries prefer the use of burial vaults for obvious maintenance reasons.
  2. To protect the casket and remains. For many families this is extremely important, and to some families it is not. The choice is yours, although many cemeteries and their maintenance staff wish you to have an outer concrete burial vault at the time of disposition, the choice is always yours.

Outer burial vaults range from the standard gold coloured vault, which is a non-lined outer burial vault and serves as basic protection from the grave site elements, to lined outer burial vaults, which are designed for families who wish a more permanent protective burial vault. Lined vaults are constructed with a combination of concrete cores, steel reinforcement and with inner liner materials ranging from ABS plastic, Polystyrene, Stainless Steel to the maximum lining for the maximum protection available such as a Copper or Bronze lining. All of the above outer burial vaults have a unique tongue and grove design in the lid and the body of the vault. A special sealant is applied before the lid is moved into place. All outer burial vault lids have the deceased's name, year of birth and year of death inscribed on a special plate. The vault companies have the ability to personalize the lid of the vault upon the request of your funeral director.

Lined Vaults

Lined vaults are designed to protect the deceased and the casket against the entrance of any water or foreign grave elements.  Professional installation, a grave site canopy as well as the grave dressings and custom lowering device are all included in the price of the vaults listed.

Urn Selections

The value of an urn is determined by the material from which is it made and the craftsmanship involved in its production. A wide range is offered providing choices in all price ranges.

Personalization Options

As you begin to think about personalizing the funeral, turn your thoughts to your memories of the person who died. Think about his or her qualities and what he or she meant to others. Consider his or her passions, hobbies, pastimes, likes, dislikes.

You might try making a list of the following:

  • Attributes or passions of the person who passed 
  • Special memories to share
  • Achievements of the deseased
  • Important people to include somehow

Personalize the elements of ceremony

Once you've given thought to the unique life and personality of the person who passed, it's time to incorporate those memories into the funeral plan. Be creative. Together with your family, friends, funeral director and the person who will lead the service, brainstorm how to remember and honour this special person.

A good way to personalize the funeral is to personalize the common elements of funeral ceremonies:

  • The visitation
  • The eulogy
  • The music
  • The readings
  • The procession
  • The committal service
  • The gathering or reception
