Outer Burial Container Price List

At Burch-Messier Funeral and Cremation Service, we are proud to offer Outer Burial Containers from ISS, Interment Supply Service of Goodview, VA; locally owned providing Poly Liners and Poly Vaults.  Our Concrete Outer Burial Containers are provided by Golden Eagle Vaults in Franklin, Co. VA.

What is the difference between a Burial Vault and a Grave Liner?

Collectively, both are considered Outer Burial Containers. A burial or urn vault is a protective outer container
for the casket or urn. It provides the casket or urn with superior, long-lasting protection against subsoil elements
and the weight of heavy cemetery maintenance equipment. A grave liner has less ornamentation and
is solely used to protect the casket from the weight of heavy cemetery maintenance equipment. In cemeteries
that require an Outer Burial Container, a Concrete Grave Liner satisfies this requirement.

Poly Sealed Vault Black 150 lbs. $1795.00

*State or local law does not require you to buy a container to surround the casket in the grave. However, many cemeteries require that you have such a container so that the grave will not sink in.  Either a grave liner or a burial vault will satisfy these requirements.

* These prices include all applicable freight surcharges charged by the vault company, if applicable.


There is an extra charge for use of tent, chairs and grave equipment of $250 that will be added to you total.  Overtime charges may apply if your services are outside the vault companies’ regular service hours weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
