Grave Liners

Grave liners are not burial vaults. These containers are sometimes minimum use requirements at some cemeteries to assist with the grave settlement over time. The weight of the earth from a grave varies from 5,000lbs to 8,000lbs, depending on the type of soil. Therefore, a casket will loose its integrity because of the weight of the earth. Therefore, an outer burial container will support the earth from the final resting place. That is the sole purpose of a grave liner and does not offer protection from the water table in the ground. If dryness is important for one’s peace of mind, a protective burial vault  should be selected instead of a grave liner.

Lake Shore Funeral Home has 2 types of grave liners: Concrete and 14gauge steel.
