Bethania Cemetery

Outer Burial Containers (Burial Vaults)

125 YEAR LOGO 2.jpgAs you may know, Bethania Cemetery maintains its grounds with heavy equipment such as back hoes and industrial mowers. This type of equipment puts pressure and weight on adjacent graves, causing maintenance concerns as it relates to ground settlement.

Therefore, Bethania Cemetery requires that a casket or cremation urn be placed into an approved outer burial container. Resulting in the minimizing of earth settlement, which allows the Cemetery Grounds to remain level, easy to maintain, and free from hazardous and uneven ground conditions.

A choice of three different types of approved outer burial containers are available directly through our Cemetery Office!
